When news about The Expendables -- an action movie that would bring together stars like Sly Stallone, Jet Li, and Jason Statham -- hit in 2008, we wondered who else would join the ensemble affair. By the time Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren, and Randy Couture signed on, it was clear Sly was digging lots of old and new-school names out of the woodwork. But even after Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger agreed to make appearances, some names didn't, specifically Jean-Claude Van Damme and Steven Seagal. Was there just no room for them, or was it something else?

According to another British "report" -- quotations used because these things only seem accurate maybe half the time -- Sly says the two '80s action stars weren't involved because the lacked the right sense of humor.
