Watch Jason Statham get electrocuted by Maynard James Keenan in a wig
Maynard James Keenan’s CV is stuffed with actually bizarre shit. He as soon as ran a produce market and and has proved to be a profitable Arizona vintner with Merkin Vineyards, delightfully named after a toupee on your genitals.
He’s additionally notched up a number of appearing roles over time, most notably as Devil within the 2002 movie Bikini Bandits and the lead singer of Titannica in Run Ronnie Run, starring David Cross and Bob Odenkirk. Oh, and he additionally has that complete Device/A Good Circle/Puscifer factor happening.
So it actually shouldn’t shock you that Maynard was referred to as upon to lend his abilities to Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor’s 2009 movie Crank: Excessive Voltage. He solely will get the one scene, but he has the distinctive pleasure of zapping the fuck out of Jason Statham, earlier than his canine chomps on a copper’s bollocks. Maybe somewhat backstory is required right here.
In 2006, Statham starred within the batshit action schlockbuster Crank as Chev Chelios, the identical character he at all times performs – a gruff, pissed-off Cockney hardman.
The premise was that Statham had been poisoned and would die if his adrenaline ranges ever dropped under a sure degree. A ridiculous plot line – sure, even for us metalheads – however a minimum of it assured steady servings of fast-paced nonsense.
Crank did properly sufficient to warrant a sequel in 2009. The adrenaline plot had been exhausted first time round, so Statham has now had his coronary heart stolen in Crank 2 – not by a lover, however by gangsters – and has it changed with a dodgy synthetic ticker. To outlive, he consistently wants electrical shocks to remain alive; strategies vary from static brought on by intercourse (go along with it) to stealing batteries from ambulances.
The late Chester Bennington rocks up at one level – following up his cameo within the first Crank – and is noticed by Statham at a horse race. Determined for a static top-up, Statham offers the Linkin Park vocalist an unwelcome rub of the arm then goes about his day. As we stated, go along with it.
Nevertheless it’s Keenan’s look which steals the present right here. Throughout a police chase, Statham requires one other burst of power to maintain his coronary heart going; in a park, he notices the wigged Device frontman torturing a pet canine with an electroshock collar. Statham rightfully berates Keenan – who’s accompanied on this scene by one-time 9 Inch Nails and A Good Circle member Danny Lohner – then steals the gadget for himself. With the pursuing officers within the distance, Stathan eggs the vocalist into giving him some juice.
Surprisingly Crank: Excessive Voltage was by no means screened for critics forward of its cinema launch, though its incessant action silliness has helped it earn its personal cult following during the last 13 years. Whispers of one other instalment have continued for years and, whereas there’s nonetheless no information of a 3rd providing, a minimum of we have now this scene to maintain us going.
