Sylvester Stallone wrote a part for me in The Expendables. When I asked him about the subject, about the story, he said, ‘You’re gonna make lots of money’. I don’t want to hear that, I want to hear about the acting challenge. So I didn’t do the movie.

I’m very happy to be in the picture. I had a lot of talks with Sly and the director Simon West and I decided that the best thing for me would be to appear in the film.
So can we end the Jean-Claude Van Damme debate now? Maybe his whole contract situation isn't worked out, but countless times now he's said he's going to be in this movie. Barring some unforeseen dispute or sudden development, Van Damme will be in this movie. Let's let the rumors end on this one.
