Ronda Rousey, Kellan Lutz and More Talk About Joining The Expendables 3 Posted by Joseph Lee on 04.22.2014
Who made Ronda Rousey speechless?
In an interview with IGN, the "young guns" of The Expandables 3 spoke about joining the franchise. The younger cast members include Kellan Lutz as Smilee, Victor Ortiz as Mars, Glen Powell as Thorn and Ronda Rousey as Luna. Here are highlights:
Lutz on working with action legends: "It's really quite a unique experience to be working with all these legends. You step into a franchise like this where these are all superstars and for all of us young guns it's just been really cool to have them joke with us on set and be really communicative. It's a blessing to get to play soldier and run around with guns. And to do it with your favourite action heroes growing up… it's a bit surreal. Then to have them be as cool onscreen as offscreen, you can't wish for a better cast to work with."
Powell on working with Randy Couture: "If you look at Mr Forearms over here. He's definitely intimidating. He's been showing me forearm workouts. He has a real physical presence for sure."
Rousey on meeting Harrison Ford: "He's not here but I became speechless and stuttered and started to act like an idiot when I met Harrison Ford. I used to watch Star Wars on repeat – like, it would end and I would press the rewind button and go back to the beginning and do it again and again."
