Austin Expendable

Mar. 12, 2009by:

Steve Austin Just when you think the level of testosterone and general bad-ass-ery in Sylvester Stallone's upcoming actioner THE EXPENDABLES can't get any higher what with Stallone himself, Mickey Rourke, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, and Eric Roberts starring, Stallone just went ahead and added Steve "Stone Cold" Austin to the cast. Also confirmed for an unspecified role in the film is brunette babe Charisma Carpenter, who we mentioned yesterday may be starring. Let's just hope we get some more female blood into this flick. As great as this collection of action bad asses is, we need some extra "X" chromosomes to settle all this testosterone. The story follows a group of mercenaries who head to South America to take down a ruthless dictator. It's slated to start filming later this month for a release sometime next year.

Charisma Carpenter

Extra Tidbit: In addition to "Stone Cold", Austin's nicknames include The Texas Rattlesnake and The Bionic Redneck.

I don't even care if this turns out aweful, seeing all of these dudes on the screen at once makes it an instant classic!

dont get me wrong...

I am psyched about this movie as well, but I dont like throwing Stone Cold in there. Jon Cena too busy from the Wrestling World. If Bruce Willis signs up for this thing with Chuck Norris, I'm going to have a mangasm.

oh great!!

I know...lets throw Chris Brown in here with Stone Cold. Then, Sly and the Gang can beat the shit out of Stone Douche and Browneye, since they get there jollies off by beating up on women. Thats my idea for a quality flick!

Sly a buffy fan???

I dig his casting of Cordy, but you know he also cast Darla in Rambo. You think owns the box sets of Buffy and Angel and plays them when he works out? That'd be awesome.

HELL YEAH!!! And let's not forget about Schwarzenegger and Trejo! I don't think there's ever been a movie that's kicked this much ass before cameras have even rolled. Go Stallone!!

I saw this news earlier on a wrestling website and they also listed Gordon Ramasay as being in the cast. WTF?!?! Anyone else heard that??

Awesome

Not that Austin is a good actor or anything, but this much muscle behind this kind of action fare? Screams Predator in my mind. NEVER a bad thing!
