Movie Quote of the Week bannerAnswer to MWL 1/27/16: William Wallace (Mel Gibson) – Braveheart

William Wallace: Milady.
Princess Isabelle: Sir, I come to beg you to confess all and swear allegiance to the king that he might show you mercy.
William: Will he show mercy to my country?
Isabelle: Mercy is to die quickly, perhaps even live in a tower. In time, who knows what can happen if you can only live?
William: If I swear to him, then all that I am is dead already.
Isabelle: You will die. It will be awful.
William. Every man dies. Not every man really live.

Grammer is Officially Expendable

It has been floating around that Kelsey Grammer was in talks to join the already large cast of The Expendables 3.  Recently, Yahoo movies has confirmed that audiences will get to see Grammer in the upcoming installment of the action franchise.

Kelsey GrammerHe will play Bonaparete, a retired mercenary recruited by the Expendables.  Originally Nicolas Cage was up for the role, but for whatever reason, that didn’t pan out.  Grammer is an interesting casting choice because he hasn’t had many action roles (I can’t think of any besides X3: The Last Stand).  But I think he will play the part well.  He has many years of experience from sitcoms that will offer much comedic relief.

The Expendables 3 is set for release on August 15, 2014 with Patrick Hughes in the director’s chair. Grammer will join Expendables veterans Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews, and Jet Li, as well as fellow newcomers Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson, Antonio Banderas, Milla Jovovich, and Wesley Snipes.
