“I can’t be racist; I AM two colors already”

Rocky, Indiana Jones and now Mad Max – it seems everyone’s most forgivable ranter of racial and religious slurs is officially in as the bad guy of Expendables 3, with Antonio Banderas also on board.

I’ve no idea what this means for the supposed “advanced talks” that Nic Cage, Milla Jovovich, Wesley Snipes and Jackie Chan were in – I’m still hearing Chan’s name bandied about, but am guessing the others are looking a lot less likely.

Can Stallone’s character possibly take down the one guy whose career in Hollywood seems utterly immune to offending every group there is? More to the point, do we care enough to watch at this stage?
