Has 'The Expendables 3' Recruited Its Villain?
The Expendables 3 has assembled the greatest line-up of action heroes in movie history, with Jackie Chan and Nicolas Cage joining Sylvester Stallone and his band of badass mercenaries. Now that the team of good guys is in place the next step is to recruit a villain for them to shoot at and fight underneath a conveniently placed sprinkler system.
Movieweb is reporting that the movie may have found its bad guy, with Tom Sizemore admitting that he's been approached for the role. In a recent interview, where he talked about filming in Bulgaria for his new movie Company of Heroes, Sizemore revealed:
I might be going back there [Bulgaria] for The Expendables 3. I'm up for the lead villain. They shot either the first or the second one there, and they're going back there for the third one. I'm up for it, I'm being considered to be in The Expendables 3.
Sizemore has forged a successful career playing the tough guy. He was excellent in True Romance and Saving Private Ryan, so it would be great to see him chew up scenery and lay the smack down on the Expendables if he gets cast as the villain. Get Wesley Snipes on board as his evil sidekick and John Woo directing and The Expendables 3 could well be the greatest movie of all time (slight exaggeration I know, but you get the idea).
What do you guys think? Would Sizemore make a good villain? Drop a comment below.
The Expendables 3 lands in theaters sometime in 2014.
