50 out, Crews in?

Mar. 21, 2009by: Dave Davis

There was a minor uproar the other day when Sly Stallone announced he'd be replacing Forest Whitaker with Curtis "50 Cent" Jackson in his manly action flick THE EXPENDABLES.

Now that tiny crisis is past, and for whatever reason is no longer cause for concern. Sly has informed AICN that the role will instead be filled by indisputable badass Terry Crews.

Crews has been gaining plenty of traction since leaving the NFL behind, popping up and leaving an impression in movies like FRIDAY AFTER NEXT, BAADASSSSS!, THE LONGEST YARD, HARSH TIMES and GET SMART, and as the father figure on TV's "EVERYBODY HATES CHRIS" -- but many will know him best as the esteemed President Camacho from IDIOCRACY.

He will, of course, be joined in the flick by writer-director-star Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts, Charisma Carpenter, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture and "Stone Cold" Steve Austin. Crews will play an Expendable named Hale Caesar (not a federal agent, as I had initially believed), and will next be seen in TERMINATOR SALVATION.

Extra Tidbit: I still say this guy should be the only choice to play B.A. in the A-TEAM flick.

I love Terry Crewes, It's really rare for a guy to look like a badass and yet be versatile enough to be funny and endearing too. BTW. he was the only reason to watch White Chicks!

I'd much rather have him than 50. The only thing I like about 50 is his flavor of Vitamin Water, but I enjoy all the flavors, sooo...

The casting of 50 cent was the only bad news I heard about this film, but with Crews replacing him I'm back to excited.

Lmao, Crews is a fuckin' G. He can decently do drama, but man is he hilarious. I hope Stallone uses him well.

Acually, if they saw fit to cast Keith David, that might be better than even Forest Whitaker, since I swear that man kicks ass even in the shoddiest of roles. Absolutely one of my very favorite actors.

Neutral rating cuz I'm still very pleased with the Crews pick.

it isnt so much that 50 cent sucks, even though he truly truly does.. its that Terry Crews is so very fucking amazing in everything he is in! The man has talent in every role he does, and takes every movie he does to a better level! To say i am a fan of his, would pry be an understatement, i think he is one of the best actors, or at the least, one of my favorite actors! So glad he is going to be a part of this already high expectation flick!

While still a downgrade from Forest Whitaker, I'll gladly take Crews over 50 Cent.

While not as prestigious as Forest Whitaker, Terry Crews is definitely a good actor, who has proven, most notably with his work for David Ayers, he can do serious, not to mention his more famous comedic parts, which means he oughta be able to do tongue-in-cheek real well.

At least this is a much better casting than 50 Cent. This movie is soooo going to be awesome!! (it would have been much more awesome of Jean-Claude Van Damme & Vin Diesel are in but this is good enough)

It would have been awesome if Whitaker was still involved, but this is a helluva lot better than 50 Cent. Besides, it's not like this flick is Oscar Bait. It's a badass action flick!

But would have been even better was if it was Carl Weathers taking the part. There's really nothing for him in this movie?

This is still a big step down from Forest. Besides, this guy has never played a serious role, at least that i have seen. He is always playing a parody of a big bad black guy.
