Forest Whitaker? Awesome.

Does this movie even need a plot at this point?

I really hope it doesn't. I'll pay for 3 hours of nonsensical action. I'd be set for a year just after one viewing.

Now Ghost Dog-Lt. Kavanaugh is in it? ...and I jizzed in my pants!

Also we need a title updated for this, and each time there is a cast addition!

I wonder if there are some others trying to get a spot now, like Seagal, Van Damme, etc.

So if this was being pieced together prior to Rocky Balboa and Rambo would the interest still be as high?

Not sure if already mentioned, but you can't forget Lou Ferrigno.

We're also missing Scott Glenn. Get him in here too.

Just the casting alone gives me sudden flashes of Rocky 4 in my head, and that alone will mean that not only am I in on day 1, but you can count me in for the Blu-ray, DVD SteelBook and subsequent action figures.

Is this locked in as a PG-13 or will there be a chance it will get an R.

"I will break you" (deep russian accent)

I think Lundgren should say this at least once during this film.

Can't have the greatest move ever made and not have Morgan Freeman narrate something.

But since "Fuckin' Awesome" needs to be just that he's going to have to narrate the closing credits.

Jesus f-n Christ!

Robert Knepper has also joined the cast. The star of Fox’s Prison Break recently confirmed the news in an interview with the BBC.

I heard they're re-animating Steve James because Stallone needed a sidekick.

Keep your Harvey Milk biopics, and your teenybopper vampires, and your Nicole Kidman pussyfests, THIS movie can kick all of their asses while shooting pool.

If I were to liquify this movie, and rub one drop on mah junk, I could fuck forever.

I immediately geek out. Jackson is one of my favorite actors. I ask him what was he like. He tells me he was pretty cool. Although he dresses funky. He says he was in a pink polo shirt and baby blue plaid golf pants. At midnight. On a Saturday night. In the IHOP on Airline Drive in Bossier City. They met him when they went to check out. The cashier asks him if he noticed the person standing behind him. My little bro says, "No." The cashier tells him that a celebrity is standing behind him. He turns around and there is the baddest motherfucker on the planet. My brother and his friend's jaws hit the floor. There is this awkward silence for about 10 seconds with them just staring at him, awestruck. Jackson breaks the silence, "Damn. What's y'all's problem? You act like I just stuck you up at gunpoint or something. Do I intimidate you?"

And this is why I love my little bro.

Without blinking an eye he retorts, "We're not intimidated by anyone that can get their ass kicked by Arsenio Hall and Eddie Murphy with a mop."

Sam stops for a second, then roars with laughter. My little bro's friend is dumbstruck. He has no clue why this is funny. Jackson talks to them for a minute and tells them that that was the most random thing a fan had ever said to him and my little bro asks for a favor. "What, you want my autograph?" Jackson asks. My brother goes, "Nope, could you call me a motherfucker though?"

Jackson obliged.

Thats probably one of the greatest celeb stories EVA!

Awww. Van Damme turned down the roll that went to Dolph. What an idiot!

"Apparently, Sly was pissed too. Sly made the offer personally. They spoke on the phone for a half hour or so. JC apparently gave Sly the explanation about following a new and different career path for himself now."

Sure JCVD is making some noise, but hes also doing Uni Sol 3 which is already slated as DTV. Smart.
