The Expendables 2 Cast Discuss the Sequel at London Premiere
08.14.12 by Ryan
The Expendables 2 won't be released into theaters until this weekend, but the extensive cast were on hand for the sequel's premiere in London, including newcomer Jean-Claude Van Damme.
"I was happy for [Sylvester] Stallone to accept the idea of me playing a villain," Van Damme told Reelz. "I think I did a good job."
On the "good guy" side of the cast, returning actor Arnold Schwarzenegger — who will have an expanded role from the cameo he made in 2010's The Expendables — said there was plenty of competition among the cast.
There was always fierce competition from day one on — who has the biggest muscles, who has the best action, who uses the biggest guns and all this stuff.
Here's the official synopsis for The Expendables 2, if story is more important than blowing things up.
The Expendables are back and this time it's personal... Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis
) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. Hell-bent on payback, the crew cuts a swath of destruction through opposing forces, wreaking havoc and shutting down an unexpected threat in the nick of time — six pounds of weapons-grade plutonium; enough to change the balance of power in the world. But that's nothing compared to the justice they serve against the villainous adversary who savagely murdered their brother. That is done the Expendables way.
Directed by Simon West (Con Air), The Expendables 2 co-stars Chuck Norris and Scott Adkins.
