Sylvester Stallone has rounded up one hell of a cast for his punch-packed passion pic â€œThe Expendablesâ€ â€“ aside from himself, thereâ€™s Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture and Arnold Schwarzenegger (who will shoot a cameo in Los Angeles for the film in a monthâ€™s time or thereabouts). Is there anyone Slyâ€™s forgotten to call?
Seems not. Slyâ€™s been through his little black-book and then some. Just because we wonâ€™t see them on screen doesnâ€™t mean they werenâ€™t asked. In addition to Jean Claude Van Damme (who knocked back a role in the film), Stallone tells StalloneZone that he did offer his old â€œTango & Cashâ€ co-star Kurt Russell a piece of the action too. Unfortunately Goldieâ€™s beau nixed the offer.
Stallone says, â€˜â€™I know that many people on the site have asked for Kurt Russell. I asked for him too. Actually, I was taken aback when asked to put the request in a letter and send it to his agent. Subsequently, I was called back by the agent several days later after refusing to send a letter and he said Kurt Russell is not interested in â€˜ensemble actingâ€™ at this time. So, People, I came, I saw, I failedâ€.
Um, what gives Kurt? “Miracle 2″ gearing up? Or is this a case of an agent not even relaying a message to a client? Wouldn’t surprise me at all. Smells like a gatekeeper decision to me.
