"Parker," in theaters today, features all the hallmarks of a Jason Statham action flick: stylish stunts, fast cars, sexy locales, sexier ladies -- in this case, Jennifer Lopez -- and tough guys, lots of tough guys, including Michael Chiklis of “The Shield” and “Fantastic Four” fame and Nick Nolte, who’s known for eating metal. (Well, not really, but would it surprise you?)

Blitz recently sat down with Statham and Chiklis to talk about guy stuff, as opposed to hard-core sports stuff -- because while Chiklis, a native of Lowell, Mass., lives and dies by his Boston teams, Statham isn’t much of a sports fan. We’d been warned of this going into the on-camera interview with the 45-year-old Brit.

So, how does a sports entity conduct a non-sports interview? See the video above. Hint: You talk about darts. And cute little dogs.
