Which former president does Sylvester Stallone want for Expendables 3?

Jan. 30, 2013by: Niki Stephens

The casting for any EXPENDABLES film could be endless. From the beginning, we've heard about every action star's name being thrown out for a role. If anyone knows how to get 'em it's definitely Sylvester Stallone. But what if the casting was a little more out of the box? Say like, one of the former presidents? Yeah.

When MTV caught up with Stallone on the red carpet for BULLET TO THE HEAD, they talked who he may or may not be getting for the third installment. His answer was a little surprising: "Maybe President Clinton wants to be in it. You think I'm joking, right?"

No sir, we don't. How crazy is that? He didn't say anything about him talking up a weapon, but if it did come to fruition the 42nd President of the United State would likely have a cameo.

After that whopper, Stallone did mention that there could be some new faces, even if he had to go to fictional extremes, "There's going to be a lot of new blood in that. I just have to kill off some of the others guys to make some room."

We know that Jackie Chan is definitely interested, but has he talked to any other potential actors for the series? Like Wesley Snipes, and Nicolas Cage? "We're going to reach out to all of them for sure."

I would kill for W to come in like Chuck Norris did.

No way in hell it would happen, but Dubs did have a sense of humor.

He may have had a sense of humor, but he was one dumbest president by far. And Dubya doesn't deserve a role in any movie similar to Chuck Norris. Even the shitty ones. Even Sidekicks!

This would be brilliant. Give him a gun, let him kick some ass and spout some one liners!

awesome.

Reminds me of a story Bradley Cooper told on Conan where he met Bill Clinton and Clinton asked him "Is there gonna be an A-Team 2 and can I be in it?"

Pres. Clinton should do The Expendables 3. He has had a long-running Hollywood connection. He did not like his image's use in Contact (or in Family Guy one imagines). The Expendables 3 would give him greater control of his Hollywood career. And, Bill Clinton fits the franchise's tone: action with some sense of humor. Also, The Expendables franchise surprises fans consistently with its casting. Granted, we movie-goers should not know about an "unexpected" cameo ahead of time. But still, Bill

But still, Bill Clinton is as welcome to appear in a '90s throwback action movie as he was to surprise us on the Arsenio Hall Show.

And remember, politicians Fred Thompson and Patrick Leahy make action movies. Clinton should too.

This is easily one of the strangest things I've ever read. I'm all for it though.

Maybe he could...

maybe the movie better two. The first two sucked so bad. The action wasn't even that good. They were actually kind of boring. But the only good thing was the action was grounded and wasn't CGI so that was cool. I'm still down for a third one cus its awesome to see everyone on screen together.
