Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme didn’t have enough of a sense of humor for The Expendables!
We were wondering what was up with Seagal and Van Damme. It didn’t make sense to us that they would pass up on a possibility to actually be in a theatrically released film. Seemed bizarre.
Here’s what Sylvester Stallone has said on the subject:
"I wanted to set Jean-Claude against Jet Li, but he didn't want to lose to Jet. He didn't think that was cool. But that's why it would be cool; to have Jean-Claude beaten by the other man. Hey, they could have a rematch. But Steven Seagal and Van Damme, they weren't really into our gallows humor."
Wahhh, we’re Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme and we don’t think it would be funny for us to lose in a fight on the big screen, wahhh. At least you guys would have been on the big screen.
Was this really the reason you guys bailed on the movie? Oh well…we wish you the best of luck with your future endeavors…
Steven: Keep up the wonderful work with that reality cop show.
Jean-Claude: We’ll eagerly anticipate the next inevitable installment of the Universal Soldier franchise.
Do U think Seagal and Van Damme should have done The Expendables?
