Van Damme talks Stallone's The Expendables

JCVD explains why he didn't take the part

Jean-Claude Van Damme has spoken to totalfilm.com about why he turned down a part in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables, claiming Stallone was just interested in pitching money and action.

“Stallone gave me a part in his next movie," he told us. "But I ask 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 what was my character.  He was unable to tell what it’s going to be."

"[Stallone said:] 'You know, uh, well, the fighting will be good.' [So I said:] 'Sly, what is my character?' So I didn’t do the movie."

      We all have a vision. Bloodsport is one of my favorite movie of JVC. Go for your dream to make Bloodsport2. Almost all Hollywood actors had fail during their movies careers. You have nothing to prove cause you were and still one of the amazing actors. You marked your generation, the past and the new one who will your movie. John Bob
