Many action movie fans are thrilled to see their favorite action movie stars from the 80s and 90s team up in The Expendables 2. To coincide with the release of the first film in 2010, we previously assembled an All-Female Team of Expendables – but we wanted to go one step further this time around by putting together a list of characters from the “old school” action era with actors who have passed away, but were intimidating back in their day.
This list – which we have dubbed The Classic Expendables – brings together a baker’s dozen of classic action stars from the 50s, 60s and 70s. Each of these actors – with one exception – have all starred in some kind of action role prior to 1970.
On the following pages you will find their Expendable Bio, listing why we think they are qualified to be on our Classic Expendables team.
