Liam Hemsworth is the latest addition to The Expendables 2

Sep. 19, 2011by: Niki Stephens

The cast of THE EXPENDABLES 2 is still expanding.

So far we have Sylvester Stallone, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, and Terry Crews. Am I missing anyone?

The latest addition is Liam Hemsworth. You know, Brother to Chris Hemsworth (aka Thor) and sometimes boyfriend of Miley Cyrus. He isn't exactly an action veteran, nor has he been in a ton of action films. THE HUNGER GAMES is the first big action film that Hemsworth will be in.

There are no details on who he will be playing.

The film is set to start production in Bulgaria next month. I wonder which song from the 80s they will use in the first trailer...

Ok

Hey look another Action Star! Now we got the best of all time!

Bullshit, last time I checked Statham and Crew we're nothing compared to some other people out their. Anyone who thinks Statham is a good star must never have seen a foreign film.

foreign stars like who? Asian stars?

Jet Li is already in there, they're in negotiations with Donnie Yen to be in there, and Stallone said he still wants to get Chow Yun-fat and maybe even Tony Jaa in there as well in one of the movies.

who would you like to see since you're so upset?

Looks like you missed the point of these movies entirely, and they are trying to mix in foreign action stars but scheduling conflicts make it difficult.

I don't mind this casting, it's just that I'd rather have Stallone recruit Thomas Jane and/or Wesley Snipes. He'll be a nice addition to the cast as a newbie I guess. The first one was cheesy fun and I think this one is already better because of the new additions to the cast. I am just glad they got Chuck Norris in this.

As for what song they should use in the trailer, how about Panama by Van Halen.

If he is playing the character Taylor Launter would be playing, then hell yes! We don't need that Launter shit in this movie!

my bet

is he's a young Expendable!

Statham did hint a while back in an interview that they needed some 'young blood' with all the old guys on the team... hmm... not a bad choice.

I could totally see him dieing though :P

You know, I can't help but having very mixed feelings about the casting direction that The Expendables are going. I always thought the movie was about our dear old action heroes from the 80/90s. In this sense, we need Sly, Arnold, Van Damme, Willis, Norris, Seagal, Dolph, Snipes, etc. These guys all have their spot among the cast. But it kinda annoys me when they try to recruit new blood like this dude to broaden the appeal, or not so new blood that are NOT old-school action heroes, such as

But this new announcement, I strongly disapprove. Shit, I feel The Expendables is drifting away of what it should really be about.

You know what gets lost in all this casting news?

the fact that despite everyone's favorite action "stars," being in it, the first movie was an awful, awful, awful, terribly written, poorly made film. "I didnt go into it expecting Shakespeare." not the point. "But yo, Terry Crews' gun was sick!!!!" for all of 7 seconds.

The strike backs are to give your opinion on the article, all you came here to do was shit on the first movie. You never even mentioned where you stand on the casting which is what the article was about in the first place. You didn't like the first movie then fine, but why even waste your time with the sequel then? Why do you even care if there is a sequel, its not like your being forced to read about it, or go see it so why waste your time even reading about it. Its just so you can leave a

on the same token, why should i give a shit that nite owl liked it? it's a discussion board, with positive or negative options. I'm pretty sure the point is to give your opinion under the article, or they'd only have a green option.

Why is there always a guy like you bitching about the first movie on every Expendables article? We get it, you didn't like the movie, good for you. So why do you even care, why click on articles about a sequel to a movie you don't even like? Just so we can all be privy to your opinion. Oh WOW, now my whole life is complete because I know what Conz thinks about The Expendables. Oh thank you, Conz. Thank you for opening my eyes, and showing me a better way. You truely are a God amongst maggots.

I think having some young guy around isn't inherently a bad thing. Just not an overexposed one. And since Miley Cyrus stopped being quite the rage, Liam is in a position to make an interesting career move at a pretty young age.

But, the unanswerable question, will it be a good movie? I had some real specific issues with the first one, but the concept is still pretty interesting.

I dont know that guy. If Stallone think he can hang with those bunch of tough guy, Im fine with it. I just hope the producers dont turn this franchise into "High School Muscial" with Guns.

I'm guessing this guy will be the antagonist at Bruce Willies bidding.

As long as Taylor Lautner isn't in it, any casting news is good news. It means the movie is getting closer to filming!

If I recall correctly, Liam was floated as potentially part of the cast of the first movie. There were two Expendables team members that were cut from the script...a 'rookie' and a gay Expendable that Sly wanted Robert Knepper to play.

I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude

but so far, I don't get the Taylor Lautner hate. The guy's won several martial arts competitions so he does have some moves. Is it merely because he's a pretty boy who took a guaranteed paycheque with the Twilight movies? Granted, I haven't seen him act outside of those films but who knows? He might actually have some decent action chops.

The only thing I've seen Liam in is The Last Song and that was a bad introduction. I'll wait and see.
