The cast of “The Expendables 2” is so badass that they don’t even have to be doing anything in recently released set pictures for us to go over the top in our excitement for the film. A whole slew of photos of the cast hanging out on set (shouldn’t they be filming a movie or something?) have hit the web courtesy of Expendables Premiere and show a first look at Jean-Claude Van Damme as well as some shots of Sylvester Stallone, Bruce Willis and Terry Crews. They certainly are a nice accompaniment to the images of Chuck Norris on set that hit the web a couple of weeks ago.

If for whatever reason you were worried that “The Expendables 2” wouldn’t have enough vehicles, guns or muscles to keep you satisfied, these new pictures should put your mind at ease. The cast certainly looks like they’re having a blast while filming, which should make “The Expendables 2” be just as much fun as its predecessor.

It will be nice to get a look at newcomer Liam Hemsworth hanging out on set with this slew of action movie heroes, but don’t expect to see Mickey Rourke on set any time soon. The “Iron Man 2” star confided recently to ContactMusic that he never planned on coming back for a sequel.

“I did the first one because I felt that I owed Sly a favour. He gave me a job in ‘Get Carter’ when I couldn’t f—king shine my shoes, you know what I’m saying? And that was that,” he said. “The other thing around that, I had never said I was going to be in it. I think the producers announced it but nobody discussed it with me.”

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”


Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

Amanda Peet FTW on Brockmire

Amanda Peet brings it on Brockmire Wednesday at 10P on IFC.

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”


But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.

From baseball to beer, Jim Brockmire calls ’em like he sees ’em.

It’s no wonder at all, then, that Sam Adams would reach out to Brockmire to be their shockingly-honest (and inevitably short-term) new spokesperson. Unscripted and unrestrained, he’ll talk straight about Sam—and we’ll take his word. Check out this new testimonial for proof:
