Who Would Play Rambo In A Prequel?

A Rambo prequel, eh? We are so intrigued!

In an effort to promote The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone hit the pages of Ain’t It Cool News, where he wrote about the possibility of a Rambo prequel:

“I certainly think this is worth pondering because it’s intriguing to find the whys and wherefores of how people have come to become what they are.”

He continued with:

“The traumas, the loss, and the tragedy of being in Vietnam would certainly be a great challenge for a young actor, and it would be ironic that Rambo directs younger Rambo after having played it for 20 plus years.”

That’s all fine and dandy, but we’re interested in exploring potential actors for young Rambo. Here are some initial thoughts:

Zac Efron - Of course guys want to see Rambo movies, but add Zac into the equation, and Rambo now attracts a drastically wider audience. Provocative, right?

Michael Cera - This would be insanely off-type for him. Sure, it might be a disaster, but if it worked out? Epic.

and our #1 Pick….

TAYLOR LAUTNER - Because he’s totally ripped and we know from the Twilight movies that he can navigate the woods. What do you think?

    Sorry Perez, the world doesn't want a gay Rambo.



  2. 2

    Of course they're all young guys. You fat perverted piece of shit.

    I'm also shocked you didn't put down Bieber.



  3. 3

    You are such a fucking moron Mario. None of those actors would work. You are seriously stupid. Your opinion sucks. I seriously need you to stop talking you fat stupid fuck.



  4. 4

    All little boys! No, the character needs to be played by a man. What about that gorgeous new addition to True Blood, the guy who plays the ware wolf, the one helping Sookie right now - HIM!



  5. 5

    I Pick Taylor but i think they could pick someone better more manly then them.



  6. 6

    If you can believe it, Taylor Lautner is a much worse actor than Stallone. However, a perv like Mario could stare for hours.



  7. 7

    Zac Efron is WAYYYYYYYY to pretty to play rambo.



  8. 8

    rambo is supposed to be rugged and manly- pretty boy teen stars arent the way to go on this one. plusss wouldnt they have to be at least italian to be believable as a young sylvester stallone?

    Wow Perez bad choice;
    Zac Efron - seeing how "well" his movies are doing, he would be a bad choice.
    Michael Cera - for a spoof of Rambo he would be excellent, great actor but doesn't fit the role
    Taylor Lautner - Rambo wasn't phillipino as far as I know.
    A good choice could be; Tom Welling, Gael Garcia Bernal, Orlando Bloom, Kellan Luts may even be a better choice although not a big fan, Milo Ventimiglia!,



  10. 10

    Each choice is based on your gayness. Rambo was not a Twink.



  11. 11

    None of these queers are worthy of walking in the footsteps of Sylvester Stallone.

    Re: Eris – Taylor Lautner is not filipino. He says he's caucasion.



  13. 13

    You just named off three of the five worst actors. Especially for a non-gay role.



  14. 14

    The producers are going to have a hard time finding someone who acts as in the uniquely terrible style of Sly Stallone. Maybe somebody with mild mental retardation (and a steroid addiction)?



  15. 15

    HAHAHAHAHA!!! Are you kidding me Perez??? Rambo is like as he-man and masculine as you get, and it is not a movie that even tries to appeal to women. They aren't going to put a little twink like Taylor Lautner or Zacquisha as Rambo!!! That would be sooooo stupid. I'm sure they would put some all-American boy type, like Chris Evans or something. HAHAHAHAHAHA, Taylor Lautner as Rambo, that is really funny!!!!



  16. 16

    Man u are too G@Y for your own good…those dudes are way too sissy to even look the part…Lautner..are u kidding….No guys would even go to that movie



  17. 17

    hmm they need a rugged and manly actor? Jennifer Anniston? Sarah Jessica Parker? Chaz?



  18. 18

    Sam Worthington.



  19. 19

    None of them……they all look nothing like Sly, they have to atleast look like him to play him. But then again the whole idea of a prequel to Rambo is just ridiculous, its taking the franchise too far and ruining it. Personally the first film is my favourite, and i understand the things that Rambo would have went through, without having a desire to see them. A lot of people would agree.



  20. 20

    LOL Rambo has to be played by a very manly man!! Not by pretty boys!! xD



  21. 21

    I think Zak with some black dye in his hair could be a good choice.



  22. 22

    They need someone more rugged. Zac Efron and Michael Cera… ummm I don't think it would work.

    Taylor Lautner could be a good choice.



  23. 23

    Perez, you are more intimidating than Taylor Lautner…



  24. 24

    Hello what about KELLAN LUTZ????



  25. 25

    Will Ferrell, because a piece of crap like that could only be a comedy!



  26. 26

    Dick Cheney



  27. 27

    Zac Efron???? WAY TOO PRETTY! I'm disregarding Cera, Lautner would make it feel like a child playing cowboys & indians in his grandma's backyard! Boost up the age slightly & look at more beefy actors like Kellan Lutz at LEAST. *puke* But, I would have to vote for my boy Shia Labeouf lol…. he would transform this role! no pun intended. Previously someone said Milo Ventimiglia, idk about him leading a film. But, oddly I can totally see it. They all would need to pack on the muscle though.



  28. 28

    Mil Ventimiglia played his son in Rocky and for good reason: he looks a LOT like him, talks similar, etc. If Milo were to SERIOUSLY buff up, he could totally pull it off.

    Re: SRM – lol caucasian my ass, he looks like he has philipino blood in him, it isn't disgraceful or anything, but he wouldn't fit the role, heck he doesn't even look indian to me, as indians have finer facial features imo.



  30. 30

    I don't know his name off the top of my head, but the Alcide character from True Blood would make an EXCELLENT Rambo, I think.



  31. 31

    all of them are way too polished. have you ever seen rambo?
    fucking tom welling



  32. 32

    Efron as Rambo. A fundamentally absurd concept.



  33. 33

    Zacharry Quinto. Even looks like a young Stallone.
