The Expendables-Dolph Lundgren, Steve Austin and Terry Crews
What the hell is he doing
How's playing a good guy this time around?
Dolph Lundgren: "I think I do a pretty good bad guy, but I've done a few of those so it was kind of nice to be a good guy too."
How has Stallone changed over the years?
Dolph Lundgren: "Well, I think as a director he's a little more thoughtful I'd say, a little more mellow maybe. So he kind of talks to the actors a little more about their scenes and their performances. I thought that was kind of nice, at least for me. He really took his time and I think that really helped in the picture, too."
Was there a lot of hard, physical work getting ready for it?
Dolph Lundgren: "Yes, it was. I mean I'm always in pretty good shape. I do a lot of martial arts which is kind of agility and speed. And in this film I knew I had like Terry Crews, Stone Cold next to me and all those guys so I was like, 'I better do some weights,' you know? So I started doing some weights and got a little bigger, now I'm kind of leaned-out a little bit again. But, yeah, I had to match their arms. I didn't quite make it, but almost."
Who's the toughest?
Dolph Lundgren: "I don't know, man. We didn't necessarily have like a punch out. But I'd say Stone Cold would be a bad dude to run into in a dark alley."
And how about Terry Crews?
Steve Austin: "He looks mean, but you know Terry started off as a wedge-buster in the NFL so he's a tough man in his own rights. Would I want to mess with him either? No."
What did you do when you had downtime from shooting?
Steve Austin: "When we were in Brazil, every morning when I went down to the gym Sly was there too. He wrote, directed, starred - it was like he was wearing a lot of hats and didn't have a whole lot of time on his hands. But he was always in the gym. I saw Randy in the gym and Terry. But as far as I would go, I would spend a lot of my time hanging out with Eric Roberts who was my boss in the movie just telling dirty jokes and relaxing."
How do you like playing a bad guy?
Steve Austin: "I embrace being a bad guy. I've loved being the bad guy my entire life, and back in my wrestling days it's what I thrived on. So, actually, I have more fun doing that than probably I would have... Well, I can't say that. But I did have fun!"
How has your experience been at Comic Con?
Terry Crews: "Oh man, I love the fans so much here. It's like a giant mosh pit. I'm just going to get passed upon [them]. The love, they're going to be feeling on my butt and all that. But I'm just going to float on a sea of love that is Comic Con."
