Through Facebook, a couple things I wanted to mention regarding Jean-Claude Van Damme. The official Expendables Facebook page offered this character breakdown for Van Damme's character Jean Vilain that tells us a little more about him and the plot:
Terrorist and mercenary Jean Vilain (the ferocious Jean-Claude Van Damme) will stop at nothing to find a massive stash of soviet-era nukes, slicing and high-kicking all who stand in his way. Are the #DirtyDozen any match for him?
And the second thing I wanted to mention was this posting from Van Damme's Facebook page:
We heard from a source that the character poster of Jean-Claude Van Damme as "Jean Vilain" is a fan's favorable on ExpendablesPremiere.com! Mr. Van Damme sincerely thank you for your support and he says that it was such a great experience to work with the terrific cast of the Expendables 2.
It's a huge honor for me for the site to get a mention on JCVD's page and I want to thank him and his team for that and all of you for participating in the poll and this site in general, making it the success that it has become. Its all thanks to the support and input offered by you guys!!
Also tonight, Entertainment Tonight aired our first official look at the new Expendables 2 trailer, once its available online I'll post it here at the site. I watched it earlier and ET showed clips from the trailer but didn't show it in its entirety and of course those ET guys always insist on talking through the footage....we wanna watch the footage....not listen to you talk about it. A little rant on my part, but anyways like I said I'll post it when its available.
And of course a reminder to you all, the Expendables 2 Trailer will officially arrive online tomorrow, May 3 at 10AM PST at the link provided below and I will be posting it here shortly afterward. Enjoy guys!! The wait is almost over!!
