During the British premieres, the “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels” star had an opportunity to meet and greet with Olympians, including the “fastest man in the world,” Usain Bolt.

“I got to meet him, which was terrific,” Jason excitedly shared with the audience as Jay showed a picture of the two “bolting.”
