20 Kick Ass Casting Suggestions For Expendables 3 | Steven Seagal
Steven Seagal

Who's that? Arguably the most obviously missing Expendable now that Van Damme has made an appearance. In the ‘80s Seagal broke arms and skulls through the violent likes of Hard to Kill and Marked for Death – see the last video here for more details  – then went a bit more mainstream with Under Siege and was seduced by hubris into directing grand follies like On Deadly Ground (promoting environmentalism and harmony by blowing shit up!). He’s spent the last decade and more knocking out straight-to-video clunkers where he doesn’t even show up to loop his own dialogue. He’s also the reincarnation of a Buddhist 'treasure revealer', a blues musician, a part-time cop, and he’s had a sort of CSI-ish TV show (True Justice). He’s actually not averse to sending himself up either – see Exit Wounds, Executive Decision, Machete – but sadly Stallone has confirmed he’s still definitely off the cards for Expendables 3. Stallone didn’t specify why, but legend has it Seagal has an ongoing beef with Expendables producer Avi Lerner.

Last seen: The just-out Maximum Conviction, with ex-Expendable Steve Austin.

21 my list was better
I did a similar thing to this way back in August last year. Honestly, i think Empire has missed a few corkers. http://whatculture.com/film/15-badasses-we-would-like-t o-see-in-the-expendables-3.php More

Come on Sly, get an awesome script together about a car load of drugs being smuggled in from Marseille and lure Gene Hackman out of retirement. Give him the bad guy role - what I would give to see Mr Hackman have just one more crack at the title. More

23 Reb Brown
Starred in virtually all direct-to-video knock-offs of major action hits during the 80's. Forgotten by virtually everyone on the Earth except for cult internet ranter The SpoonyOne. More

What about Mr Knightrider himself David Hasselhoff? if the expendables was intended to be cheesy, who is more cheesy than Michael Knight and KITT? definately agree Mr T needs to be in this. More

27 This list needs to be fatter..
Chow Yun Fat-ter! Charismatic, funny, heroic and let's be honest... one of the most expendable heroes in cinema, the guy often dies or is more than willing to die... he would bring genuine humour to these films... ship out dead weight Couture and bring in Chow! Or Anthony Wong as an insane villain... be great to see him in Western cinema! More

Definitely agree with both Empire's suggestion of Snipes and the above suggestion of Michael Biehn, both should appear at some point if they're doing this big action get together properly. Would also like to see Mark Dacascos (Drive, Crying Freeman) in a villainous role. I like most of the ideas in the article bar Connery (stay retired), cameos by Ford and Eastwood (perhaps as opposing figures in whatever conflict the Expendables are involved in) would be amazing, but Eastwood will never do it, Ford would have been a definite no as well, but I would have said the same about him appearing in Anchorman 2!

29 Mr. T?
We've had one of Sly's main opponents, you've suggested Carl Weathers, so why no the other main Rocky foe? More

30 Michael Beihn??
Surely the Beihn-ster, should be on this list too? Terminator, Aliens, The Rock? More
