Appearing on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” actor Terry Crews revealed that his “The Expendables 3” co-star and fellow action hero Jason Statham nearly drowned during a stunt gone wrong on the Bulgarian set of the action sequel.
Crews and Statham were performing a stunt that required Crews to sit in the back of a truck that Statham was driving along the edge of the Black Sea.
“He literally is supposed to stop the truck, we get out, we shoot, the whole thing. The truck doesn’t stop. The truck goes over the dock, into the Black Sea with Jason Statham driving. He’s in the water, in the truck. We were freaking out, everybody’s screaming.”
Statham thankfully got out, swam to the surface, dried off and went for the next take. The truck itself? It was left at the bottom of the sea.
