Check out a video I made below displaying my picks for the Top 10 Movies Of 2010!! These picks are based solely on my enjoyment of the film and my opinion of them. I didn't see every single film released this year (obviously) so if you don't see a certain film that you think should be on the list its not necessarily cause I didn't think it was deserving. The Social Network IS NOT ON MY LIST, the upcoming TWITTER and MYSPACE movies won't be either. Enjoy!!
#1 On My Expendables Wish List of actors who I would like to see appear in Expendables 2 is a former wrestler turned actor who is emerging to lead the next generation of action stars. He got his start in a cameo role in The Mummy Returns, delivered his best film so far in The Rundown and delivered his career low in Disney's The Tooth Fairy. He's Dwayne Johnson, formerly known simply as "The Rock" Johnson has made himself a household name and after a few years of Disney films, he's committed to a return to action with his recent film Faster and his upcoming films Fast Five and Protection. Stallone has already stated he has Dwayne Johnson on his radar and I think Johnson has both the fighting skills and comedic skills to fit right in with The Expendables. Dwayne Johnson is who I want most of all to join Expendables 2. What do you guys think?
HERE'S MY TOP FIVE TO RE-CAP:
1. Dwayne Johnson (The Rundown, Fast Five)
2. Sandra Bullock (Speed, The Blind Side)
3. Daniel Craig (Casino Royale, Cowboys & Aliens)
4. Jackie Earle Haley (Watchmen, TV's Human Target)
5. Maggie Q (Live Free Or Die Hard, TV''s Nikita)
#2 On My Expendables Wish List of actors who I would like to see appear in Expendables 2 is an Academy Award winner and an actress who has proven her strength in drama, romance, comedy and ACTION!! She's romanced Ryan Reynolds in The Proposal, drove a bus with a bomb on board in Speed and took home the big trophy for The Blind Side. She's Sandra Bullock and I think she would bring respectability and even more talent to Expendables 2. She was rumored to be in the original Expendables but apparently was never officially asked, I hope Sly asks and she accepts this time around. Sly and Sandra already have a connection from doing Demolition Man together and I thought they acted together well and would love to see them do it again. What do you guys think?
#3 On My Expendables Wish List of actors who I want to see appear in Expendables 2 is a highly talented actor who shot to fame after taking on an iconic action role. He's the star of next summer's Cowboys & Aliens and has a lead role in the adaptation of the best selling novel The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and he's of course, James Bond, having played the role so far in Casino Royale and Quantum Of Solace. His name is Daniel Craig and I would love to see him join the Expendables sequel in either a hero or villain role. The James Bond franchise is the most successful action franchise in history and its just natural that the man who plays Bond gets a crack in The Expendables franchise. Craig has shown he can play tough, taking punches and giving them right back. This isn't Roger Moore's Bond, this is Daniel Craig's Bond. I think Daniel Craig would fit right in. What do you guys think?
In a recent interview with DEN OF GEEK, Expendables star Dolph Lundgren (who everyone seems to be interviewing nowadays!) but why not he's the man!, sidetracked sorry! Dolph stated that Sly might be considering asking Channing Tatum (G.I. Joe, Fighting) to star in Expendables 2. Here's the quote:
I know they were talking about someone really young, like that guy, what's his name? The guy that was in G.I. Joe?
Yeah, Channing Tatum, or someone like him to bring that audience. Twentysomething guys, or chicks, I guess it would be for him! [laughs] That would be good.
So we shall see I guess, Tatum is NOT high on my list. Check out the full interview in which Dolph also discusses possibly fighting Van Damme in Expendables 2 HERE!!
#4 On My Expendables Wish List of actors who I want to see appear in Expendables 2 is an actor who is incredibly charismatic and I can honestly say I have never seen him turn in an even sub-par performance. He was the only reason to watch Watchmen, took over the reins of Freddy Krueger from Robert Englund and can presently be seen playing the character Guerrero on the television series Human Target. His name is Jackie Earle Haley and what an incredible addition he would be. Obviously he doesn't bring massive muscle, but The Expendables already have plenty going in that department. What he brings is fear and respect through his menacing demeanor. I see him most likely as a villain with a muscular bodyguard (equivalent to Eric Roberts being protected by Steve Austin) only when his bodyguard is defeated, Haley proves to be an equal and unexpected physical match. In my opinion, Jackie Earle Haley is an amazing actor and would make a fantastic addition to the cast. What do you guys think?
#5 On My Expendables Wish List of actors who I want to appear in Expendables 2 is the first of my two female choices. She's well established in the world of action appearing in Mission: Impossible 3 and Live Free Or Die Hard and she is currently the star of the spy series Nikita. She's Maggie Q and I think she would make an excellent addition to the cast. Charisma Carpenter and Giselle Itie were good in The Expendables representing the female portion of the cast but I think bigger names must be sought for the sequel and the females should be included in the action in some capacity. In my opinion, Maggie Q has more then proven she's able to kick ass and deliver a solid performance. What do you guys think?
Over the next 5 days from December 20-25th I'll be unveiling my picks for the top 5 actors that I would like to see appear in Expendables 2. I'd love to hear all of your picks as well. Head on to TWITTER and send them to me @ExpendablesFilm and please use the tag #expendableswishlist.
In an interview with HEYUGUYS, Expendables star Dolph Lundgren revealed he wants Jean-Claude Van Damme, Steven Seagal and Chuck Norris to join Expendables 2. It's certainly not ground breaking news but great to keep updated to the current chatter. You can check out the full interview at HEYUGUYS!!
"Chuck Norris is on my wish list. He’d be great as a General or something like that. I’m not privy to who didn’t sign for the first one and for what reason and all of that because Stallone was the one who hired people but Jean Claude (Van Damme), who I have worked with before and is a nice guy, was asked and (Steven) Seagal didn’t want to do it but maybe he’ll be in the sequel."
