Steven Seagal Offered ‘Expendables 3′ Role

Steven Seagal Expendables 3 Steven Seagal Offered Expendables 3 Role

The Expendables was an unprecedented movie event in that it collected some of the biggest action stars in film (and/or sports entertainment) for a drag-out, blood-spattering, action flick orgy of violence and one-liners. Despite the kick of having stars like Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Mickey Rourke, Randy Couture, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger and “Stone Cold” Steve Austin in one movie, it was hard not to notice those stars who passed on the opportunity.

After the success of the first installment, we saw action movie icons like Chuck Norris and Jean-Claude Van Damme reverse their initial decisions and join what will hopefully be Con Air director Simon West’s superior sequel, The Expendables 2. But even with that increased level of badassery, one name has still been notably absent from the gang. Now, we hear that Expendables 3  (which may start filming sooner before later) might be the film that finally breaks his holdout.

Our friends at JoBlo picked up on a French magazine interview with none other than ‘modern renaissance man’ Steven Seagal, in which the subject of Stallone’s Expendable movies was raised. Said Seagal:

“He [Sylvester Stallone] plans to do another one and I have already been made an offer. We’ll see …”

The star sounds rather nonchalant in that response, but we can’t imagine why – it’s not as if he has been burning up the silver screen lately. Seagal is best known (and often mocked) these days for the TV series True Justice, and his real-life pursuits; other than that, his only (semi-)memorable movie role of recent memory was his part in Robert Rodriguez’ Machete spin-off.

I say all that to say: at this point Seagal should be excited that there is even a modicum of demand for him to do big-budget action work. Then again, if he’s too busy or prestigious for The Expendables 3, he could still stay in the spotlight this way:

  16. what about make it a action + comedy a bit more still violence but funny at the same time.

  17. Expendabls is one of my fav movies

  18. OMG LOL can’t wait!!!
    clint eastwood is an legend it would gobsmacking ,terrific if he can do the expendable 3 ?

  19. bOOOO!!! trash!!! they need to stop with this s***!!! exp-10 old men on who can’t stand up straight ….

    • Oh yah, they should only have young “hip” and “cool” kids pretending like they know what they’re doing…

  20. they might be old and as you say cant stand up straight, but they still making money and they will always be better than this generation….and besides this conversation is about Steven Segal and whether he will join the Expendables….if you wanna talk trash, go on Youtube.

  21. I don’t care about who they get to play in expendables 3, just make sure Steven Seagal, Stallone, and Statham is in it. This is not the type of movie for Brad & Angelina. I would like to see Morris Chestnut & Denzel Washington join the team also! Whew, that would be a money maker.

  22. Seagal will be in Expendables 3.

  23. I saw a tweet yesterday by Sly about how he talked with Seagal about Expendables 3. Sly relayed that Seagal would definitely be interested in being in the film if they found the right part. I RTed it to Screenrant.

  24. SEAN CONNERY!

  25. What about Richard norton or Billy blank! Can’t they be in the movie too?
