Expendables 4 showcases a stellar cast filled with returning action stars and exciting newcomers.
Directed by Scott Waugh, the highly-discussed action sequel revolves around the team's mission to prevent a terrorist organization from smuggling nuclear weapons that could lead to conflict between Russia and the United States of America.
Every Actor & Character in Expendables 4
1.) Jason Statham - Lee Christmas
Returning to the Expendables universe is Jason Statham's Lee Christmas.
Christmas serves as the team's knife expert, and the film heavily suggests that he is next in line to lead the group of mercenaries. The character is a former Special Air Service (SAS) soldier and he is usually on the receiving end of jokes from his teammates.
Despite that, Christmas is one of the most loyal members, considering his close friendship with Sylvester Stallone's Barney Ross.
2.) Sylvester Stallone - Barney Ross
Barney Ross returns to lead his group of mercenaries in the massive clash to try and prevent the US' potential conflict against Russia, and he's portrayed again by Sylvester Stallone.
Ross is set to lead his team in the dangerous mission, with him recruiting the likes of Lee Christmas and Megan Fox's Gina into the fray.
In October 2021, Stallone announced, via Collider, that Expendables 4 would be his final appearance as Barney Ross, noting that the "greatest thing" in doing these kinds of movies is trying to deliver a message that the audience can identify and relate to:
“The greatest thing is being able to provide films and entertainment and maybe there’s a little message in there because what I try to convey in my successful films is the human touch, the bond. Not so much the action, the action is self-evident, but just relating to the audience in a way they can identify with whatever the mission is with the characters at hand.”
Along with the announcement, Stallone also said that he is “ready to pass the baton on to Jason [Statham] and his capable hands,” indicating that Lee Christmas will likely serve as the team's leader if Expendable 5 happens.
Stallone has been an icon in the action scene since the 1980s, starring as war veteran John Rambo in the Rambo franchise. The actor is also known for his roles as John Spartan in Demolition Man, Rocky Balboa in the Rocky and Creed franchises, and Stakar Ogord in Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy movies.
