Exclusive : More Expendables Cast?

Exclusive : More Expendables Cast?

Sylvester Stallone’s currently using stilted benches in the parks of Brazil to do his crunches. He’s, of course, in town filming his all-star (I tell ya, I’m still more excited about this than I am Tarantino’s similar-themed “Inglourious Basterds” – probably due to that mega cast Sly’s got) action spectacle, “The Expendables”. Besides Sly, it features Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Steve Austin, Mickey Rourke, Charisma Carpenter, Eric Roberts, and Terry Crews. Testosterone city, ay!?

And if there weren’t enough hale and hearty fighting-types already onboard the flick, get this : MMA favourites The Nogueira Brothers, as well as Lyoto Machida, have been offered roles in the film.

The Nogueria Brothers are of course Brazilian-born duo Antonio Rodrigo Nogueira and his twin brother Antonio Rogerio Nogueira, two of the biggest names in mixed martial arts.

Antônio Rogério Nogueira is also known as “Minotoro”. Also a proficient amateur boxer, he was the 2006 and 2007 Brazilian Super Heavyweight Champion. He also won a bronze medal in the 2007 Pan American Games.

Antônio Rodrigo Nogueira, aka “Minotauro”, is, like his brother, known for his technical mastery of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Antônio Rodrigo has a distinguishing large scar on the right side of his back from a truck accident as a youth that helps distinguish him from his twin.

Stallone also wants Brazillian MMA fighter Lyoto Carvalho Machida for the film. The son of a Japanese-Brazilian Shotokan karate master, Yoshizo Machida, Lyoto holds an undefeated record that includes victories over former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz, former UFC middleweight champion Rich Franklin, and current UFC lightweight champion B.J. Penn. He’s never lost a single round in the UFC, let alone a match.
