20 Kick Ass Casting Suggestions For Expendables 3 | Michael Ironside
Michael Ironside

Who's that? Craggy grump who survived projects with Walter Hill and Paul Verhoeven. Ever-effective as a villain or an irascible authority figure, he even came out of Highlander 2 looking basically fine and positively shone in the likes of Starship Troopers. Still prolifically busy, he mostly sticks to small indie films, but mixes in the occasional blockbuster (X-Men: First Class, Terminator: Salvation).

Last seen: Last year’s financial crisis drama California Winter.

Likelihood:

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
