WTF! | Toughness Over Talent

19 03 2009

After over three decades of taking shots to the dome, it appears that Father Time has finally caught up with industry veteran Sylvester Stallone. The iconic Hollywood tough guy is catching all type of heat for his decision to replace Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker with hip-hop mogul Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson in his latest film.

“The Expendables” will unite some Hollywood’s biggest action stars. Already signed on are Jet Li, Mickey Rourke and Jason Statham as well as Stallone. Whitaker was initially cast as Agent Will Sands but was forced to drop out due to scheduling conflicts. As soon as “Mad Dog” was out of the picture, RockyStallone quickly filled his spot with Fiddy. Currently shooting in Brazil, Stallone was recently on the defensive when asked to defend his choice of Jackson.

Talking to fans on his forum, StalloneZone, he attempted to quell the outrage among his supporters. “Please tell the loyal followers to be positive not negative in their feedback. I am not self-destructive. The anger of the casting of 50 Cent is understandable, but not fair.” But StallonePhilJackson didn’t stop there.

“A player is only as good as his coach. If a man can communicate in one medium, he can communicate in another if his strengths are brought out and he has the support of well-wishers. So, trust me, the change of Forest Whitaker to 50 Cent AKA Curtis Jackson is a good one.”

It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out that by replacing a great actor with a great . . . rapper, we can figure out what type of film that the “Sly One” is making!
