So everyone’s favorite action movie stars were featured in the Expendables 2 right?
Obviously you can’t cast everyone you ever dreamed would look cool in those berets, but there are a few living action legends that really should be asked to make an appearance in any potential third movie.
So who are we thinking?
Sean Connery, or at least one former bond. Shaken but never stirred, this Scottish screen hero made The Rock sooo much better.
Tom Cruise. Obvious choice really. After several impossible missions and his new movie Oblivion about a soldier sent to destroy an alien world to come out, we’d say his Minority Report is way overdue.
Mel Gibson, okay he’s got headlines for screaming irrationally at people and belittling his dinner guests, but let’s not forget that no matter how many aggressive answering machine messages he left, you can’t take the Braveheart actors his freedom. Some cash, but not freedom. Lethal Weapon and Mad Max, that is all.
Once he’s free, Wesley Snipes has got to be a dead cert. Currently in prison for a multi million tax evasion felony, the Blade actor could give Sly a good performance like in Demolition Man when he actually played a prisoner who is unfrozen as a killing machine. He’s out July 2013 so plenty of time to practice some moves.
But what about the girls?
From Salt to Tomb Raider, Angelina Jolie has the charm and stamina to get through any action epic and come out on top. The violent femme has got her hands dirty in Mr & Mrs Smith, Wanted and soon, Salt 2.
Sigourney Weaver has saved the planet on numerous occasions in the Alien movies as Ellen Ripley who friends sadly always seem to get killed. Life wasn’t always alone in space for her, like in Ghostbusters, although she did turn into a demon dog.
Finally, Linda Hamilton. As Sarah Connor she spent the first Terminator movie running scared, but by round two, she was hard as nails and could give any man aside robot Arnie a good beating. C’mon Mr Schwarzenegger, have a quiet word with your pal Sly.
