My old friend Gary Daniels tells me heâ€™s roasting like a marshmallow over a fire over there in Brazil, where heâ€™s filming a role in Sylvester Stalloneâ€™s all-star CytoSport Muscle Milk advertisement â€œThe Expendablesâ€.
Yep, thatâ€™s right, another action-movie star is onboard. Can the cast of this thing be any fatter!?
Daniels, soon to be seen as Bryan Fury in the film adaptation of â€œTekkenâ€ (left), has spent the last couple of weeks in RepÃºblica Federativa do Brasil, working alongside Stallone, Jason Statham and Eric Roberts. The Brit plays one of the villains â€“ someone who ultimately comes to blows with Statham and Jet Liâ€™s characters, which should make for an explosive mÃªlÃ©e!
Daniels has been plugging away for years. Heâ€™s well known in the Philippines, where he worked alongside Jackie Chan and Richard Norton, but in the states, is yet to crack the big one (not to say he hasnâ€™t had plenty of work â€“ heâ€™s appeared in a bunch of direct-to-dvd actioners including â€œEpicenterâ€, â€œRetrogradeâ€ and â€œSubmergedâ€ with Steven Seagal). This could be it! If it is, I couldn’t be happier for Gaz. Have known him for years, and seen his potential way before our friendship.
Daniels will also be joining the rest of the cast for the New Orleans part of the shoot.
