Re-introducing The Expendables’ Old Guard
Sylvester Stallone — King of the 80’s Action Movie, Sly is best known for Rambo, Rocky and, of course, that arm-wrestling action hero in Over the Top.
Dolph Lundgren — Recognized as Sly’s Russian nemesis Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, Lundgren also starred in Masters of the Universe and The Punisher (1989).
Bruce Willis — Willis made the jump from TV to movies with 1988’s Die Hard — which spun-off three successful sequels.
Eric Roberts — Roberts was introduced to action movies with 1989’s Best of the Best — a sort of Rocky with martial arts.
Arnold Schwarzenegger — Stallone’s main rival as ‘80s action hero, Arnie made such hits as Conan the Barbarian, The Terminator and Commando.
Mickey Rourke — Although he began as a dramatic actor, Rourke dipped his toe into the action genre with thrillers like Double Team with Jean-Claude Van Damme.
