Rain was offered a role in Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming action pic “The Expendables,” according to Sylvester Stallone.
In an interview with KBS2 TV’s showbiz news program “Entertainment Weekly,” which aired Saturday evening, Stallone explained that he had asked Rain to appear in “Expendables.”
“I haven’t visited [Korea] but I am familiar with some of the people… We almost used a Korean actor called Rain,” explained the legendary action star. “I wanted him to play like [Chinese actor] Jet Li’s son or his brother or something in there… I thought it would have been great.”
He said that Rain was doing a tour when they were filming the movie however, and could not appear in the film.
“Expendables,” about a team of top-notch mercenaries trying to take out a South American dictator, will feature special cameos by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Stallone, who stars in the film, also co-wrote and directed the pic.
That really says something for Rain. He’s making a name for himself as an action star in Hollywood.
