Nice article from the Living.Scotsman.com about ‘The Expendables’ and how it will probably be Lionsgate’s summer blockbuster. A screening in Santa Monica last week apparently went over very well. The article introduced the players and gave a synopsis, but it’s what it said about Jason that was cute.
The cast matches older stars, like Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, Eric Roberts and, in a dual cameo, Bruce Willis and – all over 50 – with some slightly younger ones.
Those include martial arts expert Jet Li, along with the fight and wrestling circuit champions Randy Couture and Steve Austin, and an NFL veteran, Terry Crews, all in their 40s. At 37, British tough-guy Jason Statham, whose credits include Crank and Revolver, is the baby.
