Van Damme knows he should have been in The Expendables?

Aug. 13, 2010by:

MovieFanCentral member HeyDude3007 posted this EXPENDABLES red carpet video with a little something interesting tucked away in it.

Remember when Jean-Claude Van Damme explained how Stallone hung up on him after he turned him down for the film because the proposed part didn’t have enough substance?

Well according to Stallone, he spoke with Van Damme recently about it, and gives the impression he now sees the error of his ways, and probably should have joined the powerhouse cast. Watch it below, it’s at about the 2:00 mark.

Extra Tidbit: Danny Trejo is other EXPENABLES prospect who caused some controversy. After helping Sly raise funds for the film, he was for some reason dropped from the cast when the movie actually got made.

I've got a good feeling we'll see him in the sequel.

I absolutely enjoyed this film, but I did feel that it didn't deliver as many action stars as it initially promised - but aside from Van Damm I couldn't remember who was dropped.

Got home and realized it was Danny Trejo and Wesley Snipes. damn!

Also, what's with the casting of the UFC fighter for one of the leading rolls? They couldn't find ANYONE more suited for this film?

Same thing with the NFL player... Terry..something

im guessing everyone who turned down roles will end up in the sequel, bring on van damme, snipes, trejo, segal, and im up for chuck norris.

maybe Stallone will forgive him and bring him back for the sequel. If not, bring on Jeff Speakman, Danny Trejo, and Chuck Norris and it,s a party!

I'm sure The Expendables will garner enough good review and financial gain that we'll soon see The Expendables 2 (and I hope it's not a straight to DVD/Blu Ray movie).

it's funny to hear Stallone say (when he was talking to schwarzenegger)why didn't we do this in our prime. LOL! That's a great question, but it's cool to see it's happened before their too old to do it. Now we gotta get those two in a film where they have more than a five minute scene together. I have a feeling it would turn out as awesome as Tango and Cash!

Even though van Damme supposedly said he now regrets not committing to The Expendables I think he made the right choice. As long as he continues in the vein of his last film JCVD, where he gave a surprisingly stellar performance.
If he can, he should now start to take as much non-action roles as possible because he can obviously act and he can't kick ass forever.

Screw Van Damme as much as it woulda been cool to see him he obviously just saying he made error because how the movie is getting pretty good reviews and the impact its having so Van Damme shoulda believed in the project from the start. Kurt Russel I dont mind because he had a resonable excuse of not wanting to be in ensamble project.

Sucks he wasn't in it, but now he will be in the sequel and it will surely kick ass. Then Sly should call The Rock.

If Scott Adkins had been in it, I would have been out of my mind for this.
