The Expendables 2 Cast Suggest Actresses For The Expendables 3
08.23.12 by Ryan
For The Expendables 2, only a lone female was added to the (previously) all-male group of new and returning action stars — Chinese actress Yu Nan. But with The Expendables 2 taking the top slot at last weekend's box office, it seems only a matter of time before The Expendables 3 becomes an inevitability. Hollywood Dailies caught up with the cast to see which actresses they feel could make it as a mercenary in the Expendables crew.
Terry Crews and Randy Couture both mentioned Charlize Theron (Aeon Flux), while Chuck Norris suggested MMA fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano (Haywire), which makes sense considering Carano admitted earlier this year that she was considered for the role in Expendables 2 that went to Nan instead.
Of course, there will be more male action stars as well. Before Expendables 2 opened last weekend, producer Avi Lerner was already discussing who could join the ever-expanding cast in Expendables 3, and told Total Film about the casting possibilities.
We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters]. And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return].
Cage was also rumored for a role in The Expendables 2, and along with Theron and Carano, we received plenty of suggestions for kick-butt actresses from you on our Facebook page. Was there anyone we missed in the clip above? Let us know with a comment below.
