Mel Gibson To Play The Villain In EXPENDABLES 3?

It was rumored that Gibson would actually direct the movie for a while before Patrick Hughes signed on, but now Showbiz 411's sources report that the troubled actor/director will actually have a role in the threequel as the villain! Click on for more..

Sylvester Stallone usually drops Expendables 3 tidbits via his Twitter account, but now we have some (possibly) big casting news from a different source. Showbiz 411 reckon Mel Gibson has signed on to star in the third geri-actioner:



"I’m told that Gibson will appear in “The Expendables 3,” the third installment of Sylvester Stallone’s shoot em up series that also features his former Planet Hollywood buddies and partners Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. There’s no confirmation, but the source seemed serious."


Their source also claims Gibson will play the villain in the movie. This might be seen as a bit of a risk by Stallone and co., as after his recent "troubles" (run- ins with the police, antisemitism, racism, beating the shit out of women etc) Gibson isn't exactly a big draw anymore. Still, casting him in an antagonistic role might well be a stroke of genius. Anyway, this isn't official yet, but what would you guys think if Gibson was to square off against Stallone in The Expendables 3?

This news inspire me ...

I think he's a great director, and a pretty good actor..but a bigger piece of human excrement there is not. I'll still watch him IN a movie, but I doubt I'd have any interest in seeing one he was the star/hero of.
TheClemster - 6/7/2013, 8:11 AM

TheClemster - 6/7/2013, 8:12 AM

I agree what he does outside of films isn't going to stop me from seeing him do what he's good at

I like The Patriot also, kinda reminded of the Last of the Mohicans :)

Whoa, Ror, you might want to stick an 'alledgedly' or two in there. Some money/fame/revenge seeking skank Mel slept with (be honest what guy in Mels position wouldn't make that mistake...more than once cuz we're stupid dick thinkers) may have claimed abuse by Mel, but I'm not aware of even charges being filed, so that statement has no factual basis. As for the rest, I'd like to get any of you holier than thou's drunk and stupid some day and see what pent up frustrations you express. It'd be a hoot, I'm sure, so you all might want to take a pass on the judgment of others.
Now that I got that out of the way, I think being the villain would be great. Id put Mel in situations similar to all of those that he has received bad press for and have him respond to each one by simply eliminating the problem the way a truly evil person would...by killing. A cop pulls him over...blam. A woman gives him grief...blam. Some gets in his way...blam blam blam. And who is his character? A high ranking US government official, of course. It would be a crowd pleaser for sure.

@ teabag

LMFAO

Was looking forward to Bat ish crazy Nic Cage as the villain, but I could see Gibson.
ManDeth - 6/7/2013, 8:49 AM
It was just 13 years ago this guy was in "What Women Want".
Now the ugly bastard could not possibly get that role. Not just because of the rants but because hes an Ugly Old Bastard.
