Another actor Sly should re-team with for “Expendables 2” is John Lithgow. As some of you already know, John Lithgow already teamed with Sly as the main villain for the action flick, “Cliffhanger” (pictured above). Would John make a great lead villain for Sly in “Expendables 2”? Absolutely!
While everyone on the internet is listing all these movie stars to star in the sequel, it is kind of weird how Lithgow was never mentioned once. In the first “Expendables” movie, I didn’t care for Eric Roberts villain role, it just didn’t work. I think a role like that would be more suited for Lithgow. Lithgow played the villain in so many films in the past, he is currently playing a villain in HBO’s “Dexter”.
I think John Lithgow would make a great addition to the “Expendables” cast. Lithgow never gets a mention because the guy is so underrated, aka not so popular. If I had to give casting advice to Sly, I would say go for Lithgow as one of the main villains. Lithgow has great acting chops when he does play the villain. Lithgow does a great job on getting people to hate the guy.
I would like to see Sly and John re-team again. It be like Gabe Walker and Eric Qualen back together again!
