'Expendables 2' Cast Gets Extra Macho Infusion with Schwarzenegger and Chuck Norrisby: Posted:
The uber-macho antics of "The Expendables" just got a little more testosterone-y. Rumors are swirling that a number of names are set to join "The Expendables 2" or return in bigger roles, and the names are big ones in the world of action movies.
First off, the rumored cast has Jason Statham, Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren and Mickey Rourke returning...but that much was expected. It also looks like Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger might be returning as well, so that raises the question of their roles: now that Schwarzenegger is no longer in politics, will have have a bigger role in the sequel?
It could happen, but the movie might not need it: rumored new additions to the cast include Jean-Claude Van Damme, John Travolta, and Chuck Norris. Travolta seems a bit out of place, but Van Damme and Norris would be right at home in the "Expendables" universe and could provide even more fun. All that's left now is to add Steven Segal (but nobody wants to work with that guy).
These are all rumored names at this point, so we'll have to see if any of these names make it onto the final cast list. If they do, though, "The Expendables 2" could be even bigger and more guilty-pleasure-good than the first.
