Baby, he heard Stallone a’calling, tossed grenades and scrambled jets.
It must be tough to be a middle aged actor in Hollywood but not to have been asked to join The Expendables. You must feel like the unpopular kid in school. The one hanging around outside the house having the great party, hoping to sneak your way in.
The latest addition to the beefiest, most exclusive club in town is Kelsey Grammer, who as Expendable tradition demands, will wield a ridiculously brilliant name:
Grammer will play a former mercenary who aids Team Expendable in their mission. It’s the role originally offered to Nicolas Cage. Imagine Nicolas Cage being offered a film part and not accepting it.
The official Expendables 3 synopsis reads thus:
"In THE EXPENDABLES 3, Barney (Stallone), Christmas (Statham) and the rest of the team comes face-to-face with Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson), who years ago co-founded The Expendables with Barney.
Stonebanks subsequently became a ruthless arms trader and someone who Barney was forced to kill… or so he thought. Stonebanks, who eluded death once before, now is making it his mission to end The Expendables -- but Barney has other plans.
Barney decides that he has to fight old blood with new blood, and brings in a new era of Expendables team members, recruiting individuals who are younger, faster and more tech-savvy. The latest mission becomes a clash of classic old-school style versus high-tech expertise in the Expendables’ most personal battle yet."
The Expendables 3 is released 15th August 2015.
