Danny Trejo talks Expendables

Danny Trejo is apparently upset that he was excluded from The Expendables when early talks of the film suggested that he was firmly a part of the cast.

Well now he comes forward shooting his mouth off about why he thinks he wasn’t included.

WorstPreviews quotes:

“Let me tell you about ‘The Expendables’,” said Trejo. “Stallone said I was in ‘The Expendables’ so he could raise his money, you know what I mean? Because I bring in the Latin audience. So I was in ‘The Expendables’ all the way up until the time they started casting. I’m not in ‘The Expendables.’ That’s one of Hollywood’s ploys to… how do you say it? They have this huge cast, and then all of a sudden, when it comes time to cast, the people that actually raised the money aren’t in it.”

He was then asked if he feels like Stallone used him. “Of course. Come on, man. All them guys — supplements are making them nuts,” he replied.

Sounds more like angry talk when he takes personal jabs suggesting that “supplements are making them nuts”

While there might be a shred of truth that there was big talk of big cast, and name dropping lots of celebrities does help make the movie, but when it comes down to brass tacks, when the movie finally gets made – thats when we find out who they could afford, who fits the script, and all those other adjustments a final project gets.

They turfed 50Cent for Terry Crews (traded up for an ACTOR), and Whitaker had a scheduling conflict. That he didn’t include Trejo could have been for a dozen reasons, but I don’t think they name dropped him as being on the cast just to lure in a Latino audience.

He was name dropped because they likely wanted to use him in the first place. Or maybe this tantrum is an indicator of why they dropped him? Who knows.

But I assure you it wasn’t “the supplements”. Its just business.

Do you think Trejo would have made for a bigger draw? I don’t.
