    If you haven't heard of the expendables....

    Directed by Sly Stallone, The film pays tribute to the blockbuster action films of the 1980s and early '90s, and stars an array of action veterans from those decades (such as Stallone himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Jet Li) as well as more recent action stars such as Jason Statham, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Stone Cold Steve Austin.


    The list of heros:

    * Sylvester Stallone as Barney "The Schizo" Ross, a paramilitary veteran and leader of the team.
    * Jason Statham as Lee Christmas, second in command of the team. He is a former SAS soldier and expert at Close Quarters Combat using knives.
    * Jet Li as Yin Yang, a Chinese expert of martial arts.
    * Dolph Lundgren as Gunnar Jensen, a Swedish sniper. Jensen hates Yin Yang and fights with him frequently.
    * Bruce Willis as Mr. Church, the man who hires the Expendables.
    * Mickey Rourke as Tool, a former Expendable, now an arms dealer and tattoo parlor artist/owner.
    * Arnold Schwarzenegger as Trench, an old rival of Ross.
    * Terry Crews as Hale Caesar, Yin's best friend and a weapons specialist.
    * Randy Couture as Toll Road, demolitions expert.
    * Gisele Itié as Sandra, a young native woman and undercover Interpol agent.
    * Charisma Carpenter as Lacy, Lee Christmas' fiancee.
    * Lauren Jones as Cheyenne, Tool's love interest.
    * Nick Searcy as Agent Will Sands, a CIA agent who helps the Expendables.

    [edit] Garza's Men

    * David Zayas as General Garza, the evil dictator.
    * Eric Roberts as Agent Monroe, a corrupt CIA agent who is preventing the Expendables from killing General Garza.
    * Stone Cold Steve Austin as Dan Paine, Monroe's bodyguard
    * Gary Daniels as The Brit, General Garza's main henchman and a former Expendable who wants to go to war and get revenge against the team for kicking him out.
    * Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira as General Garza's henchman.
    * Amin Joseph and Senyo Amoaku as the leaders of a group of Somali pirates that challenge the Expendables.

    Steven Seagal who's turned into a overweight blob, and the legendary Chuck Norris.

    Why is Stone Cold even in this.

    You're right..where is Chuck Norris!:mad:

    Steven Seagal SHOULD be there but with his recent legal issues maybe they decided not to have him in there.

    Jesse Ventura and Carl Weathers should be in there somewhere.

    How about the "American Ninja", Michael Dudikoff ? Or Jeff Speakman, "The Perfect Weapon"? These straight-to-video guys can't be left out!
    Or Don "The Dragon" Wilson ? Or Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, the Japanese-American guy usually cast as a badguy...Oh, and Dwayne Johnson?...Ralph Macchio?
    BTW the film already sounds like a contender for the "So Bad Its Good" award.:)

    I hear they wanted Snipes but his legal problems wouldn't allow it, so they had to get Crewes instead.

    Sean Connery, Pierce Brosnan, The Rock, Richard Roundtree (for all you Shaft fans out there), Chuck Norris, Mr. T.

    What about Big Jaws and Bigger Jaws?

    In seriousness now, Carl Weathers would be good.

    Van Damme Segal and Chuck as mentioned above.

    Bolo should be in there for the bad guy. He was Chong Li in Bloodsport and a villian in a few other movies.

    Thats really the main names I can think of. But they should have Bruce Leroy as well.
