Deadline reported today that Sylvester Stallone will produce a The Expendables TV event series for Fox, in which a brand new team will band together to save The World/ probably just America. The Expendables, of course, is also known as The Squad of Action Heroes Who Eat Dinner Around 4:30 So They Can Catch Their Programs at 7. They are all old, is what I’m getting at here. According to the report, the TV series will star action heroes from television past, much like the film franchise did with movies.
This means two things. 1) Fox is taking ideas from my Tumblr again, just like they did with Empire and 2) until an official cast is announced, we can all speculate wildly on what TV stars of days past will be filling the awkwardly fitting black shirts of The Expendables.
Now, I know some of these people are technically too old to do this, or maybe even technically too dead, but let’s keep an open mind people.
