If you’re an actor in Hollywood, I don’t know whether or not it’s a compliment to be approached for The Expendables. With the over-the-hill actioner sequel on the horizon, producer Avi Lerner is already confident there’ll be a third go-round and he’s got the ball rolling on casting. Of course, a third Expendables really depends on the sequel’s box office and whether or not the lead cast make it through the next few years.
The actors who fit Lerner’s criteria of being old as dirt are Nicolas Cage (who has already committed to the film), Clint Eastwood, Harrison Ford, and Wesley Snipes. It’s a shame that Pat Morita weren’t still with us. He’d be great in this. (Total Film)
