Sly Thinks Whitaker Expendable

Sly announced at the American Film Market convention that he hopes to get Academy Award winner, Forrest Whitaker, for the role of a “devious CIA agent” in his next film “The Expendables.” Sly already has Jason Statham and Jet Li on board and told the crowd: “Whereas the ‘Oceans 11’ films were an ensemble for good looking guys, this is an ensemble for ugly tough guys.” [If only Charles Bronson and Lee Marvin were alive and in their prime!
