Well, well, well, The Expendables finally get somebody under 30 into the fray, as Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth (Younger Brother of Mighty Thor, Chris Hemsworth) has signed on today, according to a Variety exclusive.

See the 1st trailer here...

The Expendables 2 trailer: This time it’s...

The Expendables 2; This time Bruce & Arnie will be ‘Substantial’ characters...

The Expendables 2. some more, ‘official’ casting confirmations. Van Damme & Norris yes, Cage probably, Travolta?

Liam, perhaps still best known for his starring role opposite Miley Cyrus in ‘the Last Song’, will almost certainly be a much bigger presence in the movie world following next Spring's, highly anticipated, release of the first (they hope) of four Hunger Games movies.
Hemsworth joins Sylvester Stallone. Jason Statham, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, and recently confirmed 80s action stars Jean-Claude Van Damme and Chuck Norris.

As much as the films are about bringing together old school action stars in a retro muscle-bound action, the inclusion of Statham & Li was already a concession to slightly more ‘modern’ action trends. However neither Statham nor Li are spring chickens either. So the inclusion of rising Star Hemsworth is a significant development.

The potentially explosive 1 – 2 punch of The hunger Games and The Expendables will aid Liam in his battle with brother Chris Hemsworth for world domination! (They actually get along very well). Whilst Chris was catapulted onto the A-List with his well received performance as Thor, Liam got himself the plum role of Gale in the planned four film adaptation of, monster best-selling, book series, ‘The Hunger Games’.  Hemsworth has the long delayed Cabin in the Woods due for release as well as a part in the remake of Red Dawn. However his real big time shot comes next summer when he takes centre stage as one of The Avengers; in the culmination of stage one of Marvel Studios’ ambitious movieverse building plan. (The MCU). That will be followed only weeks later in another ambitious film, also intended to be the first of many; Snow White & The Huntsman, where he takes the titular role of The huntsman. It's a proud time to be Mum & Dad Hemsworth, that much is certain.

As for The Expendables 2, now that they have added a little youth, iis it too much to ask for a little female involvement? And I don't mean pretty love interests either. Michelle Yeoh, Milla Jovovich, Gina Carano! You’re up!

Haywire; 2nd trailer for Steven Soderbergh’s action thriller starring Gina Cararo, Channing Tatum, Michael Fassbender, Ewan McGregor, Michael Angarano, Antonio Banderas, Michael Douglas and Bill Paxton...(Still Rated R)

Gina Carano,
Michelle Yeoh
