    Jason Statham and Jimmy Fallon went head-to-head in a giant hamster ball race through Rockefeller Plaza on Friday's episode of "The Tonight Show."

    But first, Statham told Fallon that he had a near death experience while filming "The Expendables 3." Apparently the action-film star almost lost his life after plunging 60-feet into the Black Sea while test driving a truck.

    "I'm thinking 'This is how it all ends'," Statham said.
