Jackie Chan will be in The Expendables 3

8:00 AM on 12.18.2012

During a press conference for Chinese Zodiac (CZ12), Jackie Chan mentioned that Sylvester Stallone has given him a role in The Expendables 3. It seems like the role will be meatier than a mere cameo. As Chan explained:

Sly had invited me to be in Expendables 2, but I was too busy filming CZ12 and couldn't make a commitment to the film. But he did extend his invitation to the third movie, which I agreed on the condition that I will be appearing as more than just a minor role with a few scenes.

There's no official word on what Chan's role in The Expendables 3 will be. Ethan Anderton at First Showing notes that Chan asked Stallone if the third film will be a "buddy-buddy movie," which it apparently is. Anderton assumed this could mean Chan being a sidekick of some kind, but he admits it's just speculation for now.

As a long-time Jackie Chan fan, this is really keen news, and I think he should play a veteran Hong Kong supercop. If they can get Nicolas Cage, Cage should be his sidekick. Stallone is also looking to get Wesley Snipes and Harrison Ford involved in the film.

One last, tired, soggy ride
Washington DC screening
That's the Furious 6 font, right?
Because it has a whole ton of actors in it
Extremely brief but great.
Action! Explosions! Guns! Frasier?
