Randy Couture, Terry Crews talk 'The Expendables'

Tue, Jul 20

Sylvester Stallone. Arnold Schwarzenegger. Bruce Willis. Mickey Rourke. Jet Li. Dolph Lundgren. Jason Statham. Stone Cold Steve Austin. Terry Crews. Randy Couture.

Who would win a fight?

"That's what everyone asks me," said Couture, the rock-solid 6-1, 205-pound UFC Hall of Famer who is a legend in mixed martial arts. "I don't think like that. I don't size people up and say, 'I could take him out' or not."

Crews, who is 6-2 and 250 pounds, had a better answer:

"Who am I going to sue for beating me up?" said the former NFL player, bodyguard and now actor. "I'd show up with my lawyer in a suit and say, 'Pay me for beating my butt.'"

That's the kind of fun the action stars had making this movie about mercenaries sent to South America to overthrow a dictator. Stallone cowrote the script and even directed the movie, which is scheduled to hit theaters in a couple of weeks.

"It was Stallone's love letter to movie fans of action films of the past," said Crews, who admitted he was starstruck when he met Sly. "We had to bring our A-game. We had no places for our egos on the set. We just came together and had a great time making this movie."
