Is Sylvester Stallone Still Considering Steven Seagal For Expendables 3?


Steven Seagal

Although Sylvester Stallone has asked a lot of action stars to help out with his “Expendables” franchise, one guy who has managed to elude his grasp is Steven Seagal. Since the “Out for Justice” star comes with a far amount of baggage, getting him to agree to anything can be difficult. This stuff tends to happen when your ego outweighs your worth. But, I digress.

Stallone previously mentioned that Seagal was out of the running for “The Expendables 3,” much to the dismay of the guy writing this article. However, Sylvester suggested in a tweet earlier today that he’s still hoping the big guy will sign on for the upcoming sequel. Stop teasing us, Seagal! Just do the job, already. Sheesh.

Could this mean that Stallone is still trying to get Seagal for the project? Could be. Or maybe he just wants to talk to Seagal about traveling through Russia or organizing Arizona posses. It’s really all just speculation. However, Stallone has been teasing “Expendables 3″ information on the social media site all year. You never know.

In addition to dropping news about Seagal, Stallone also tweeted that “Mighty Mickey” Rourke will return for the sequel. He also suggested that he can put together better fight scenes than the stuff found in “The Raid.” Good luck with that.

Here’s hoping Sylvester Stallone gets Steven Seagal to sign on for at least a cameo in “The Expendables 3.” The old-school “Hard to Kill” and “Above the Law” fan residing in my soul wants this to happen like nobody’s business. Hopefully more news will drop soon.

    Oh lord!! I was okay with him in Machette but this? I don’t know. He hasn’t aged very well at all. He’s in horrible shape, and he’s kind of a joke now with that tv show.

    Mickey Rourke, Jacky Chan, Wesley Snipes and maaaaybe Seagal.

    Looking forward to this!

    “Big Guy”? More like “Fat Guy”. Sorry, but I can do without Seagal, Chan and Rourke. Give Crews, Lundgren and Cotoure more Screentime and bring in some talented newcomers like Michael Jai White.

    I think Seagal is an essential part of 80’s/90’s action movie history, so yes he needs to join “the Expendables”. I would also like to see Tom Berenger added somewhere, movies like the “Sniper” trilogy, “the Substitute” and “Shoot to Kill”, I think makes him sort of the unsung “action star” of that glorious blood stained era.

      Yes he was, but he’s so tubby and out of shape it would just be a diservice, unless he’s playing a ponytailed politician. LOL. Berenger is definite villain material though!

      • Jake Corleone

        He’s tubby but he’s still in shape. He trains UFC fighters.

        Besides, all he’d likely do here would be shoot people. You don’t need to be a bodybuilder to do that. Anything is better than that slapfight shit that he’s been doing for a long time.
