Originally, Forest Whitaker had been replaced by 50 Cent in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming The Expendables. I, unfortunately, thought it was a terrible idea, because I truly hate 50 Cent as an actor and didn’t want to see him ruin what I’m hoping will be a good movie. Well, Harry at AICN is saying that Stallone has called him up again and that 50 Cent is no longer taking the role, for unknown reasons, and instead the character of “Hale Caesar” will be played by Terry Crews. I hope this is finally who Stallone sticks with in the end.
Former San Diego Charger Terry Crews has been in everything from Idiocracy to White Chicks to Balls of Fury to Street Kings to Get Smart to Terminator Salvation. Besides that last one, not the greatest selection of films, but alas, still better than 50 Cent. Those of you that saw Get Smart should know that he’s a actually good supporting actor and should hopefully be able to do a good job in The Expendables. At least he’s big and strong, and can stand up to Stallone and Statham and Lundgren and Couture, who are also in this. Although most disagree, I’m relieved to know that 50 Cent won’t come close to ruining The Expendables.
“Okay, let me guess the next option will be Vin Diesel.”
