Any group of big macho men needs a bombshell to level the playing field. But who do you get to balance a team of cinema's quintessential toughies?

Sylvester Stallone, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, Dolph Lundgren, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and two of my favorite men -- Eric Roberts and Danny Trejo, are all in The Expendables -- the film that has quickly turned into a display of Hollywood's leading testosterone. And to balance the machismo, TV Guide reports that Sly has grabbed the beautiful Charisma Carpenter.

Stallone must love the ladies of the Whedonverse. First he teamed up with Julie Benz (Buffy and Angel's Darla) for Rambo. Now he's got the other Queen of Joss Whedon's vamp shows, Ms. Cordelia Chase. She'll play Statham's girlfriend, who I'm guessing keeps his bed warm between his expendable gigs as a mercenary.

It's not quite the gig Carpenter fans would hope for, especially in the wake of all those Wonder Woman wishes, but who knows? Maybe the woman with the powerful accessories will get her chance after Carpenter struts her stuff on the big screen. It's about time the actress got a path out of guest spots on television shows.
