Jean Claude Van Damme, opens up on why he turned down a role that Sylvester Stallone tried to get him for, “The Expendables”. Jean Claude, claims that Stallone just wanted Van Damme to make him rich, not bothering telling Jean Claude what character he was playing and Sly just telling him that the action is going to be good, that’s it.
More on it here:
If what Van Damme said is true, then that is pretty dumb of Sly. Sly should tell him what character he is playing.
I’m sure Sly himself would respond to this sooner or later.
