Arnold Schwarzenegger and Danny Trejo Join Stallone’s The Expendables

Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming action movie The Expendables is now two steps closer to perfection. Last week I posted about Jean-Claude Van Damme’s choice to turn down a role in the movie, and mentioned that at this point the only old school action stars missing from the cast were Steven Seagal and Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. Well, guess who just signed on for a role in the film? That’s right, The Governator baby!

According to Ain’t It Cool News, Schwarzenegger will indeed be involved in the film. But how is this possible with him still in office? Well, it seems that he will be appearing as Governor Schwarzenegger in the film, who has some history with Stallone’s character Barney Ross. I guess it’s more of a cameo than anything else, which is a little bit disappointing, but still, it will be good to see him on screen again. Hopefully this will keep him interested in returning to film once his next term is over.

The other good news is that bad ass Danny Trejo has also reportedly signed on for a role in The Expendables. Latino Review says that there’s a good chance he will actually play the villain of the piece. Man, I am getting pretty pumped for this flick… aren’t you? Stallone starts shooting sometime next month.



  • When I first read the Schwarzenegger news over at AICN last night I almost jizzed in my pants. Best news in 2009 so far.

    This will, if all goes well, be the best action movie of this decade!
