HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – A large number of leading conservative voices, including former Texas Representative Ron Paul, conservative pundits Glenn Beck and Sean Hannity, and Americans for Tax Reform founder Grover Norquist, have agreed to appear in the same feature film together- next summer’s The Expendables 4.
The action franchise, created by staunch Republican Sylvester Stallone, has become a haven for conservative actors over the course of the first three films, featuring noted conservative celebrities including Bruce Willis, Jason Statham, and former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. This summer’s Expendables 3 also features high profile conservative actors Mel Gibson and Kelsey Grammer.
“Adding the politicians just seemed like the logical next step,” explained series creator Sylvester Stallone. “And these guys are great! You should have seen Beck’s screen test. He’s a natural with an assault rifle in his hands.”
The collection of politicians, lobbyists, and pundits on the film, which will also feature Capitalist Pig hedge fund founding member and regular Fox News guest Jonathan Hoenig, were all very excited to be ‘going Hollywood.’
“I’m probably most famous for saying I’d like to drown government in a bathtub,” admitted Norquist. “So I was thrilled when Sly handed me my scene and I saw that I got to literally drown Wesley Snipes in a bathtub. I’m looking forward to shooting that scene, because I’m sure if I just sort of squint my eyes it will feel like it’s Obama under the water instead of Mr. Snipes.”
