It didn't work out...
In an interview with IGN, Sylvester Stallone revealed he wanted Jack Nicholson and Clint Eastwood to be The Expendables 3, but it didn't happen. Here are highlights:
On almost getting Nicholson for the movie: "I was going to go [call] up Jack Nicholson and we just got there a little too late, because actually he had said he might be interested in it."
On wanting Clint Eastwood: "Well, you know Clint is so involved with what he's doing, so that's kind of a pipe dream."
On Kelsey Grammer being added to the cast: "It doesn't automatically mean you have to be an action guy. Like, Kelsey Grammer's coming in [for Expendables 3]. Kelsey's a great comedian, great actor. He's done so many things from [TV drama] Boss to comedy. So you're going to see him do something now, a unique role – he's a mercenary's agent. C'mon! Your client comes in with bullet holes, you're going to take 10% off of him, It's just a very interesting role."
