Speaking about Jason and vehicles, here’s a short mention of him in this Los Angeles Times article about motorcycles in the movies.  They talk about the Ducati he rides around New Orleans in ‘The Expendables’.  I was just amazed at how much that sucker cost! 

Like many of the companies whose products are featured in films, Ducati does not pay studios to place its products on screen. It provides the bikes without charge. In the case of “Terminator Salvation,” Viola says the company was approached by the film’s director, McG, who owns a Ducati Monster. For the upcoming thriller “The Expendables,” during which Jason Statham speeds through New Orleans on Ducati’s top-of-the-line $72,500 Desmocedici, it was public relations agency Rogers & Cowan that sealed the deal.
