When you think of The Expendables and which actors would make a good addition to the cast, there are a lot of names to choose from. It’s no secret that male actors dominate the action genre. That’s the way it’s always been, even to this day. In fact, only in the last decade have female stars really begun to leave their mark on the genre. Yes, there were female action stars long before the millennium, but they were few and far between.

At one point, it was simply impossible to imagine a female carrying an action movie. Now, however, it’s a common occurrence. It’s so common, in fact, that a spin-off to The Expendables is in the works that will feature an all-female cast. While it’s just speculation at this point, several actresses are being considered for The Expendabelles, and I thought I’d lend a hand in the casting process.

Below are 11 actresses I think should at least make a cameo in The Expendables spin-off. I’ve included a track record for each actress to help convince you as to why I think they’d be perfect for a role in the film. Take a look!
