One of the mega-stars to perform his stunts

Jason is one of the few mega-stars to perform their stunts since the beginning of his career.

Jason has been risking his life and was almost drowned while performing the stunt for The Expendables

They were filming near the dock on the edge of a Black sea area where he had to drive a big truck, and everyone was supposed to be at the back of the truck.
