Actress Nikolette Noel has revealed via her TWITTER account that she has joined the cast of Expendables 2 in a minor role. I'm wondering if it might be the wife/girlfriend of Liam Hemsworth's character Timmons as I heard from my source in Bulgaria that they were looking for an actress to fill that role. When we know her role I'll update you guys. You can check out her IMDB history and you can of course check out pics of her above the article.
EX2Blog has collected three new behind the scenes photos from Expendables 2 featuring Randy Couture, Terry Crews and Dolph Lundgren!! You can check them out below or in The Expendables 2 section!!

Novinite is reporting that Tennis star Novak Djokovic has arrived in Bulgaria to join the cast of Expendables 2. They don't reveal what the role is but they do say it is only minor and won't last more then a week as filming in Bulgaria is set to wrap on Friday. Filming will then move to China in January where Jet Li will finally join the cast.
Thanks To Kicker For The Heads Up!!
The actual plot of Expendables 2 has remained a mystery since the beginning but according to EX2 Blog we should know more by January. They have reported the following regarding Dolph Lundgren's interview in Japan that has been brought up over the past few days:
"We know for sure that an interview was given in Japan where Lundgren gave out details about the plot. The interview is scheduled to be published in Jan 2012, so we can assume that by then we'll see more official news on the plot.
Further, the site admin of the fan site Ultimate Dolph has confirmed that Lundgren will be going to China..."
They further report we will learn more about Van Damme's character. Be sure to check out the whole article by hitting the link!!
My source in Bulgaria checked in today with just some minor tidbits for us on Expendables 2:
-Filming in Bulgaria should be wrapping up next week
-Filming In China will take place in January for two weeks
-There will be no more 'surprise' additions to the cast for the Bulgaria portion of the production
-The character of Wicks has been removed from the script which could have potentially been played by a 'known' actor (could have possibly been the role Antonio Banderas was up for)
Also, StalloneZone is reporting the following information on the trailer for Sylvester Stallone's upcoming action thriller Bullet To The Head:
One of the questions that I get most often recently is, “When will we see a trailer for ‘Bullet to the Head’? So, I asked my Sly contact and was informed that we should see a trailer in December. More news to follow as it becomes available.
Thanks To Christian For The Heads Up!!
Sorry for the lack of updates over the past few days guys, had some personal family things to deal with that of course have to take precedence. Thank you to all of you though for posting updates that you've heard in the comments section, it helps keeps everyone updated!! Here's a couple things of note from the past few days:
EX2 Blog has more on the POSSIBLE opening scene of Expendables 2. I must warn NONE of the info has been confirmed with a definitive source. Here's what they had to say:
A German movie site has taken the story revealed by the Japanese magazine - Eiga Hiho in an interview with Lundgren (story has not been officially confirmed nor the interview seen on any websites) and added more details to it: Schwarzenegger will only appear in the opening scene where he's rescued in Burma by the EX team, it could be an homage to "Missing in Action". The scene at the airport that also involves Norris & Willis is where he escapes after having been rescued (it was originally speculated that the scene at the airport would be the final battle and the closing scene). Willis then sends the EX team to a new mission (probably against Van Damme).
If true, the scene does sound cool but hopefully we do see more of Arnold cause I know we all don't want it to be over in one scene. I'll let you know if more develops.
Scott Adkins has posted to his Facebook page his own altered version of the unofficial EX2 poster, you can check it out below. It now includes pictures of both him and Jet Li.
I think to some degree we all knew this already but Sylvester Stallone has confirmed through Craig at StalloneZone that the Expendables 2 Poster that has recently been released is 'Unofficial and Bogus'. It's been established that the poster is unofficial but just what its actual source is may remain a mystery. Someone involved with the film, whether acting directly or indirectly, has been involved with this poster in some capacity, that's my belief anyways. I could be wrong but I think many of you agree with me.
But at the end of the day, we can enjoy this poster for what it is and look forward to the release of the 'Official' poster.
The poster that everyone is seeing on line is completely unofficial and bogus. The official poster is far from being completed so unfortunately people like to pull pranks. Please everyone spread the word that the real poster won’t be out for several months.
Global Arnold is reporting that Dolph Lundgren has divulged some possible Expendables 2 story details, the details come courtesy of an interview that Dolph Lundgren did with a Japanese news reporter. Read on for the story details but of course beware of SPOILERS!!
- “The Expendables 2″ opens with the scene rescuing Trench (Arnold Schwarzenegger) which became a captive in Burma.
- Agent Church (Bruce Willis) forces the Expendables to do an new mission afterwards.
- There are Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and the scene where Chuck Norris is together.
- Jean-Claude Van Damme is villain. a position of Steve Austin in “The Expendables Part 1″. Scot Adkins is a villain, too.
- An action scene and the conversation scenes of comedy-like actors increase, too.
The Exepenbables ends shooting in Bulgaria in December, then resumes in January for a week or so in China. The other locations are still unknown ( France maybe too).
Also today, a user going by the name Slavok at Van Damme Fan reported that he has been cast as extra in Expendables 2, here's his full statement:
I went to an open casting call last monday in my home town. Couple of days ago I received a call and today was my first shooting day out of three. I play a mercenary from JC and Scott's army. Both Jean-Claude and Scott were on set. I won't give any more details for now. Here is just a picture of me that I made when I got home.
As you can see, the tattoo's shared by Slavok and Scott Adkins are identical. Looks to be the official tattoo of Van Damme's army. Thanks to Expendable and kicker for the heads up on the stories!!
Sylvester Stallone is in Germany to promote Rocky: The Musical and is of course sporting his Expendables 2 look. You can check out all the new shots of him below courtesy of Hamburg.de
Meanwhile, Arnold Schwarzenegger is in Oslo on business...might he be stopping by Bulgaria on his return home to film extra scenes for Expendables 2 which was mentioned as a possibility a while back? Time will tell!!
