Though Lionsgate hasn’t officially begun moving on a fourth “The Expendables” movie yet, franchise star Sylvester Stallone revealed back in March that he’s already made initial plans with one of them being a return to the R rating of the first two films.
We know Stallone will be back as Barney Ross, but today comes word of a potential new cast member – pro wrestling legend Hulk Hogan. During a Q&A session at the Body Power Expo in Birmingham, Hogan dropped a tease that he and Stallone have been in touch about him potentially playing a villain in the film:
“We’re trying to figure out a way to maybe turn me into the most evil man in the world. Y’know, Stallone gave me my first break and he’s been a great friend. We had a great conversation, talking about the possibilities. Can I still run, can I still jump? Well, not as fast or not as high, but I think Hollywood could find a good stunt man to help me out.”
Hogan made his feature film debut in over thirty years ago in “Rocky III” as pro wrestler Thunderlips who takes on Stallone’s Rocky Balboa at a charity event. Hogan hasn’t appeared in a film since 1999’s “Muppets from Space”.
