Rambo casting rumours to chew on

Can George Kennedy fll the void of Richard Crenna?


A number of notable film vets are in talks to join Sylvester Stallone for the recently announced “Rambo 4”, says StalloneZone.com.

George Kennedy leads a pack of actors that are under consideration to play the role of Rambo’s special Corporal in the film, says the site.

WWII veteran Kennedy is no stranger to action, having starred in such classics as TV’s “Gunsmoke”, as well as the films “Airport”, “Cahill U.S. Marshal”, “The Delta Force”, and “Hired to Kill”. In more recent years, he’s more known for his role as Captain Ed Hocken in the four “Naked Gun” comedies.

Also being considered for that role is TV legend Ed Asner, Ken Kercheval (“Surviving In LA”) and Ronny Cox, familiar for his roles in the “Robocop” and “Beverly Hills Cop” series.

An equally important role to be filled is that of Rambo’s wife in the film. Apparently the two contenders at the moment are “Boston Public” fave Missy Yager and “Deadwood” regular Kim Dickens.
