Sylvester Stallone, Randy Couture, Jet Li, Jason Statham and... Forest Whitaker? One of these names doesn't belong.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Whitaker is in final negotiations to join the action-heavy cast list. Rather than joining in the fisticuffs, Whitaker's character will serve as the CIA liaison for a mercenary group played by Stallone, Li, Statham and Couture.
Stallone is also writing and directing The Expendables. Posted 01.05.09 by Ryan
Ben Stiller's latest comedy, Tropic Thunder, is being promoted through several farce sites. Most of them are pretty ridiculous profiles of the the actors' imaginary alter-egos.
Check out the lot of them:
Tugg Speedman - Stiller's panda-saving, globe re-spinning, Stallone-like action hero.
Kirk Lazarus - Downey Jr.'s much-celebrated, bizarre, and ultra-Aryan persona.
Satan's Alley - Kirk and, uh, Tobey Maguire, in a movie about an illicit monk love affair.
Panda Relocation Foundation - Won't somebody please think of the pandas!?
Let's not forget the action flick of the summer: Scorcher VI

Who should get the lead role of Transyvlanian transvestite Dr. Frank-N-Furter in MTV's newly announced remake of The Rocky Horror Picture Show? No doubt Zac Efron, Clay Aiken, the Jonas Brothers, and Sylvester Stallone, just to mention a few, are all man enough to step into the leather panties and bustier the role requires. If you ask us, though, there's really one person who can introduce the High School Musical set to vintage 1970s play-along debauchery: Lindsay Lohan, are you ready for your comeback?

Tough man Sylvester Stallone is breaking the seal, becoming the first big Hollywood star to sign on for a Bollywood movie.
The star of Rambo and Rocky will be joining Bollywood biggies Ashkay Kumar and Kareena Kapoor in a new movie called Incredible Love, about an Indian stuntman who may be able to find work in Hollywood, but not so much the love part.
Stallone will also be joined by fellow action hero and California governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger. It will be the first Bollywood production to be filmed at Universal Studios.
The question is: Do you think they'll partake of one of those famous Bollywood dance numbers?

Contestants on Tuesday night’s "American Idol" had difficult times credibly singing various Dolly Parton songs. We wondered what it would be like if they tried to recreate some of her movie roles over the years.
Have a look at the classic trailer from Rhinestone and decide for yourself which contestant could pull off her, or even Sylvester Stallone’s, character the best. Other choices might be Steel Magnolias, A Smoky Mountain Christmas or 9 to 5. Posted 04.03.08 by reelz
Raising the bar for Angelina Jolie, Bono and other celebrities who resort to such wussified methods as "advocacy" and "diplomacy" to help various beleagured developing nations, muscle-bound Rambo star Sylvester Stallone has offered to take on Myanmar's (aka Burma's) brutal, repressive regime all by himself.
"I'm only hoping that the Burmese military, because they take such incredible offence to this, would call it lies and scurrilous propaganda. Why don't you invite me over?" Stallone challenged in a recent interview with Reuters. "Let me take a tour of your country without someone pointing a gun at my head and we'll show you where all the bodies are buried... Or let's go debate in Washington in front of a congressional hearing... But I doubt that's going to happen."
Looks like you just got served, Myanmar.
Stallone is hard at work on a fifth Rambo chapter, and is rumored to be planning another Rocky as well.

After a 20-year absence, bulletproof soldier of fortune John Rambo returns to the big screen this weekend for another epic bloodbath in Rambo.
Set in the war-torn Southeast Asian nation of Burma (aka Myanmar), Rambo chronicles the monosyllabic mercenary's efforts to rescue a group of Christian missionaries held hostage by ruthless Burmese soldiers. It could very well be Rambo's bloodiest battle yet.
We've got an early Rambo review for you today as well as an interview with Sly Stallone himself! Posted 01.24.08 by reelz
With Rambo opening on Jan. 25th, this is a matchup to keep an eye on:

As ridiculous as the concept of a 60 year-old Rocky and Rambo, you gotta give Sly Stallone credit for returning to what he's good at. He's getting pretty long in the tooth (even with the steroid help), so he might as well cash in while he still can.
ReelzChannel spoke to a high-spirited Sly today in his trademark black t-shirt, busting at the seams of his still rippled 61 year-old biceps. When asked about the new Rambo movie being "one of the most violent movies in years," he was quick to clarify: "Not one of the most violent. The most violent," Stallone said with an ear-to-ear grin while pointing a finger at the journalist.
So this is the end of the Rambo franchise, right? Not so fast according to Sly: "I have a very, very bizarre idea. It's probably so absurd, but it's got to formulate a little bit... If you can find the right formula, almost anything is feasible. It's just coming in there and making the audience go, 'Okay, that's possible...'"
Stallone went on to hint at working with his fellow 80's action heroes in the not-too-distant future: "I always talk to Arnold about it. I say, 'When are you going to get over this job. Let's get back to having some fun!'" (Laughs)
So Rambo, The Terminator and John McClane might just share the screen someday? "I think that Bruce is a possibility," Sly answered with another big grin. Posted 01.10.08 by reelz
MGM is planning on remaking the 1974 Charles Bronson flick, Death Wish, about a vigilante seeking revenge for an attack on his wife and daughter. And who better to fill the lead shoes than Sylvester Stallone, who is in negotiations for the part?
Age is nothing to 61-year-old Stallone, who has recently been reprising the roles that brought him to fame with Rocky Balboa and Rambo. No word yet on how the writers' strike could impact this surely dialogue-heavy film.
