Expendables 2 Cast Gets About 100x More Badass
The Expendables was pretty badass. It was raw, it was gritty, it told a good action story, and most importantly, it had an incredibly awesome cast. From Sylvester Stallone to Jason Statham to Jet Li to Dolph Lundgren, to cameos from Bruce Willis and Arnold frigging Schwarzenegger, there wasn't much more you could ask for from a cast for an action film.
Well, apparently, we COULD have asked for more.
Moviehole has dug up an official cast list for the upcoming sequel to the film, and it appears that Stallone and director Simon West are adding some big names to the already stacked slate.
The Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme, will be joining the film as a villainous mercenary who goes up against Stallone and the Expendables. Joining him will be Scott Adkins (Bourne Ultimatum).
If that wasn't enough, Chuck Norris is also confirmed for what's probably going to be a small role in the film!
Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger are confirmed to reprise their small roles from the first movie. Willis will have a much bigger role as the film's main antagonist. Schwarzenegger's role is uncertain, but it will likely be another cameo.
Other actors have also been reportedly offered roles in the film, including Christian Slater, Christopher Lambert, and Donnie Yen, but even if the producers don't add anyone else to the cast, we'll be more than satisfied.
As we already know, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke and of course Sylvester Stallone will be reprising their roles from the original film.
The rumored synopsis for the film has Stallone and company going on a mission of personal revenge after one of the crew is murdered, but Stallone has since denied the potential plot. No matter where the film actually ends up going, one thing is clear. The homage to classic 1980s action films will definitely be sticking to the format. Make the sequel bigger, better, and more ridiculous.
