Have you ever sat down, watched a movie, and thought "Man, the stunts in this movie are fantastic!"? If you have, good on you! If you haven't, you should! Stuntmen work hard to bring you the best looking movie possible! They take beatings, they leap off of buildings, they even get 'shot' at sometimes! The point is, they work hard to give you a movie to talk about for years afterwards! But, did you know that most stuntmen have their own following? Or that some of them even do, parkour? That's right! Let's take a look 2 of the best stuntmen in Hollywood and what they do in their spare time!
Jesse La Flair
Jesse La Flair has most recently worked as Kodi Smit-McPhee's Nightcrawler stunt double in the upcoming 2016 movie, X-men: Apocalypse! Along side that, he has done stunts in movies such as 300: Rise of an Empire, Divergent, After Earth, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and so much more! With everything else on the side, La Flair is a part of the free-running group, Team Tempest. He also has his own YouTube Channel entitled "LaFlairParkour". On this channel he provides parkour tutorials, and sweet, cinematic parkour videos that show him proving that he is the real life version of Spiderman! La Flair has also participated in multiple seasons of the hit shows Ninja Warrior and American Ninja Warrior!
Cory DeMeyers has done so many stunts for so many movies, it's too hard to name them all! Just a few of the movies are, Star Trek Into Darkness, 300: Rise of an Empire, Paul Blart: Mall Cop, and Ted 2! His most recent movies that he has worked on are The Revenant, and he was Elijah Wood's stunt double for The Last Witch Hunter! DeMeyers is also a part of Team Tempest along side Jesse La Flair. "Cory Demeyers" is the name of his YouTube channel where he uploads various freerunning adventure videos where he acts as if gravity doesn't even exist!
