Game of Thrones’ Daario 1.0 Pretends to Be Jason Statham 2.0 in the New Transporter Refueled Trailer

Oh man. We normally wouldn’t have bothered posting a trailer for the new Transporter film, Transporter Refueled, but that headline was too good to pass up.

Remember when we found out Ed Skrein was going to take over for Jason Statham in the franchise, seemingly leaving his role as Daario on Game of Thrones for it in the process? [Michiel Huisman wound up replacing him (which Daario do you like more?)] Well this is our first look and… it appears he’s trying to sound just like Statham.

What do you think? Will the film do well without Statham? Do you think Skrein has what it takes to lead a film like this? Should his side gig be impersonating Jason Statham at birthday parties??? Let us know!
