Liam Hemsworth Joins The Expendables 2

The Hunger Games star will add a dash of youth to the sequel's action star supergroup, which includes Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and Terry Crews. Is that everyone? No, actually. Variety reports that — in addition to Hemsworth, who will play a sniper — the franchise is welcoming both Jean-Claude Van Damme and...Chuck Norris, which everyone really should have seen coming. We'd offer up an aphorism about Chuck's ability to transcend stunt casting, but we don't want to give the people behind this the satisfaction. [Variety]
