Action star Dolph Lundgren sat down to talk about his newest collaboration with Jean-Claude Van Damme, the action thriller Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning, and how movies like Day of Reckoning and Expendables 2 don't work with a PG or PG-13 rating.
The action star also spoke about his upcoming non-scripted Reelz series, Race to the Scene, a show that challenges contestants to recreate stunts from memorable movies. Lundgren particularly addressed the show's intros, and how he's using them as an opportunity to poke fun at other actors, including pal Arnold Schwarzenegger.race into the action this spring

"It's not the years...it's the mileage."
Though the novelty of The Expendables' all-star cast of '80s and '90s action heroes wore off somewhat by the time The Expendables 2 hit theaters, the resurgence of aging tough-guy actors continues with the success of Liam Neeson's Taken 2, which beat down the competition this past weekend. And there's more to come. Ah-nuld's getting back in the game with The Last Stand and Bruce Willis is dusting off John McClane for a fifth go-round in A Good Day to Die Hard. But, not all aging actors can continue to pull off the kind of tough-guy roles they played in their youth. Tell us which over-50 actors still have what it takes to beat up the bad guys and come back for more.

One of the hallmarks of he-man action movies of the '80s and '90s is the one-liner, that sometimes cheesy, often awesome, but definitely memorable signature line, typically delivered just before or immediately after a knock-down, drag-out fight between the hero and the villain (or one of the villain's many henchmen). It's hard to say exactly when the one-liner became a necessary fixture of action movies, but we'll give the credit (or blame, depending upon your point of view) to Arnold Schwarzenegger, whose movies have generated so many classic zingers that they're too numerous to mention. The practice was so common by 1991, in fact, that the Bruce Willis-led action movie The Last Boy Scout ends with Willis' character telling his new sidekick (Damon Wayans), "This is the '90s. You can't just walk up and slap a guy, you have to say something cool first."
With so many veteran action stars appearing in The Expendables 2 — exploding onto movie screens nationwide today! — we thought it would be fun to look back at some of the awesome one-liners delivered by various cast members in some of their more iconic roles.

Any movie fan worth his or her salt should be able to tell you that Swedish man-mountain Dolph Lundgren's break-out performance as an actor was his portrayal of the Russian boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. But, what most people don't know is that Lundgren actually studied to be a chemical engineer until his friendship with singer-actress Grace Jones and a chance encounter with celebrated artist Andy Warhol propelled him into show business. In a recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Lundgren discussed his unusual entrée into acting, his latest movie, The Expendables 2, and his new non-scripted Reelz series debuting next spring, Race to the Scene, in which pairs of contestants race to and from actual movie locations as they compete in challenges and stunts inspired by memorable movie moments. watch lundgren and join Race to the Scene >> Posted 08.16.12 by BrentJS
2010's The Expendables saw Sylvester Stallone and his crew of new and established action stars overthrow a ruthless South American dictator, but this weekend's The Expendables 2 is a more personal story, with Stallone, Jason Statham, Dolph Lundgren, Jet Li, Terry Crews, and Randy Couture back to seek revenge on a fallen comrade. As for what to expect, Lundgren told Hollywood Dailies that, in general, the sequel is "bigger."
The first one was big, this one is just bigger. Bigger stunts, more cars and planes and boats and guns and explosions and more stars.
This time, the Expendables adds Liam Hemsworth and Yu Nan to the group, while Chuck Norris, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis add extra firepower to the expanded cast. In an attempt to take down villain Jean-Claude Van Damme, they all come together in a small Bulgarian airport and leave no stone unturned. "I think there's none left," Lundgren said of the location. watch a new Expendables 2 clip >> Posted 08.16.12 by Ryan
Last August, writer-director-actor Sylvester Stallone stuffed enough current and former action stars into The Expendables to win audiences over and earn $274 million worldwide. Stallone instantly started talking about a sequel, using his Twitter to declare he wanted Bruce Willis back as a "supervillain" in the movie.
While we're not entirely sure of his intentions, Willis is back for The Expendables 2, along with fellow Expendables scene partner Arnold Schwarzenegger, with both actors having a more "substantial" role in the sequel, which has an even more expanded cast than the original. Strangely, details on the sequel have been scarce — a plot synopsis was revealed in May and involved the Expendables avenging the death of Mickey Rourke's character Tool, but was quickly dismissed. Fortunately, along with the teaser trailer comes a synopsis as well.

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 (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.
The first set photo that arrived online from the Bulgarian set of The Expendables 2 was Tweeted by Arnold Schwarzenegger and depicted the former California governor with co-stars Bruce Willis and Sylvester Stallone. With Schwarzenegger moving on to the production of Last Stand, the rest of the group are still hard at work, as evidenced by the recent crop of set photos that have arrived online.
The latest set pics reveal Stallone along with Expendables members Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and Dolph Lundgren, as well as newcomers Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris. Missing from the photos are Jason Statham, Jet Li, and Mickey Rourke. But there's an easy reason why Rourke is absent: He isn't going to be in the movie. see the reason Rourke gave and more photos >> Posted 11.10.11 by Ryan
Ever since The Expendables exploded into theaters last August, earning $274 million worldwide, the question has been "what will writer/director star Sylvester Stallone do for a sequel?" Weeks after the movie's release, Stallone asked his Twitter followers what they thought of bringing Bruce Willis back as a villain, but hasn't mentioned too many other details regarding the sequel's plot or cast. So far, it's looking like the some of the original cast are returning.
Jason Statham, who played Stallone's right-hand man Lee Christmas in The Expendable admitted to Collider that he's "very positive" he'll return for the sequel.
Willis? Van Damme? Seagal? Norris? Posted 01.18.11 by Ryan
Yes I have heard about a sequel and I’d be the first to say yes to a phone call from Sly. I mean, we spoke about it as soon as the movie started to do really well and he says, you know, it would be great to do this again, and if there’s anyone who can do a good sequel it’s Sly Stallone! He’s done a fair amount. Yeah, we had a good time. It’s something I’d like to repeat.
Much maligned director and pugilist Uwe Boll recently announced he will be making a sequel to his 2007 epic In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale which starred Jason Statham and Burt Reynolds. The new movie, currently titled Dungeon Siege 2, will star Expendables co-star Dolph "I must break you" Lundgren who will play a "a cop or like a fighting coordinator" who fights ninjas and goes through time and.... Here's how Boll described the movie to Bloginity in a recent interview.
It's like contemporary, right now big city, and we have Dolph Lundgren basically being a cop or like a fighting coordinator ... and one night he gets attacked by ninjas in his house and fell with the ninjas into a vortex back in time. more about dungeon siege 2 >> Posted 12.06.10 by Jud
