Like brother, like brother.
As his elder sibling, Chris, is becoming something of an action star, up-and-comer Liam Hemsworth has found himself quite a project. Variety is reporting that the star of The Hunger Games has joined the cast of the upcoming sequel, The Expendables 2.
Simon West is helming the film, which will find the youngster alongside Sylvester Stallone, Terry Crews, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture, as well as Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris and even Arnold Schwarzenegger, who were all recently confirmed by Stallone. That’s one hell of a list.
Scott Adkins, martial artist, has also joined the cast, but it’s Hemsworth that no doubt is getting the headlines, as this is just another instance of the actor slowly growing within his brother’s shadow. I haven’t been a huge fan of his work, but it does look as though he’s caught someone’s attention, as this is quite a project to be a part of.
