Come on Kurt Russell, Be Expendable!

Everyone loves Kurt Russell, if you don’t you’re weird. Period. He’s one of the most natural acting action stars and has an easy going charm/likability that few other actors can replicate.

When he starred with Sylvester Stallone in the classic buddy comedy Tango & Cash we thought it would be inevitable that they would team up again.

Alas, it has never happened. Kurt has been approached by Sly to appear in The Expendables but he just doesn’t seem interested in it. He’s hardly in any movies these days and I miss seeing him.

If he even could have a cameo role in Expendables 3 I’d be delighted. You still have a lot of fans out there Kurt and we wanna see you in action once again.

I think Kurt Russell has basically retired from movies but I don’t see why; in Death Proof a few years ago, he still looked exactly the same and barely aged. I’m still jealous of his hair because only he can rock a mullet and make it look awesome no matter what.

If Russell was involved in The Expendables movies, he could bring some of that dry humour to it and the script would be elevated even just a bit by his presence.

Hell, have him play Jack Burton in the movie who stumbles across The Expendables and they ask to use his truck to help them out, I dunno work with me here, people!

Anyway, Kurt Russell, I’m afraid you no longer have a choice, Be Expendable!!!!
