Van Damme explains why he’s not in THE EXPENDABLES
When THE EXPENDABLES announced their star line-up, it included almost every popular action star from the late 80s, early 90s, and today. But there was one guy missing from the list that should have been in this film. That guy was Van Damme (sorry, Chuck). Rumors floated that Van Damme turned down the role to do UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: REGENERATION, but if you've seen that film, you'll notice Dolph Lundgren's in it. The giant blonde - who still looks like he's in his 30s - also has a big part in THE EXPENDABLES. So why was VAN DAMME expendable enough to pass up THE EXPENDABLES?
After the jump is a video of a Van Damme explaining why he didn't do the movie. According to Van Damme, he's now looking for more grown-up work, and all Stallone would tell him was that he would be playing "a guy who fights like boom boom boom!" Not much is learned other than JCVD can do a great Stallone impersonation. Check it out.
