Most of us understand that as we age, it's important to maintain a healthy and active lifestyle. Go for a jog (or a "yog" if you're Ron Burgundy) once in a while. Maybe opt for a salad sometimes instead of a few slices of pizza. If you work at a desk, perhaps you make sure you walk around your office for five minutes every hour. Feel that burn.
Then there are others who take that notion to extreme lengths, who hear "maintain a healthy and active lifestyle" and think "lift enough weights every day of my life to tear a horse in half with my bare hands and have a laughing fit in its blood." Get More »
Dolph Lundgren has been the consummate action star since the 1980s, when he burst onto the film scene in the Bond flick, "A View to a Kill," before playing Rocky's Russian nemesis Ivan Drago in "Rocky IV" and He-Man in "Masters of the Universe."
He took on a different-than-usual challenge recently, playing the famous psychologist Dr. Sage Mennox in the ensemble comedy-drama, "Small Apartments."
Lundgren talked briefly with NextMovie about black hair dye, being honest with yourself, and which cast member of "The Expendables" would pose a threat to him in a fight. Get More »
There have been a lot of cool stories to come out of Hollywood in the last couple of years, but for our money one of the coolest is the sudden and unexpected career resurgence of Dolph Lundgren, who came out of nowhere (aka Europe) to reclaim his action star title with his turn as the despicable Gunnar Jensen in 2010's "The Expendables."
Now, Lundgren is kicking it into even higher gear with "Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning," which reunites him with his "Expendables 2" co-star Jean-Claude Van Damme for the sixth (!) installment of their long-running sci-fi series. Get More »
You know "Dolphin Tale," the touching story of the friendship between a boy and a dolphin. But do you know "Dolph Tale," the touching story of Dolph Lundgren (which might or might not involve a dolphin)?
Dolph Lundgren isn't just the guy who played Ivan Drago, He-Man and Psycho What's-His-Face in "The Expendables," you know. Lundgren has a master's degree in chemical engineering from the University of Sydney (true!), and was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to MIT (also true!) — two educational honors that led to his two-year underwater sabbatical communing with dolphins (possibly true!).
Just remember what Enigma taught us on their second album, "The Cross of Changes": "Man is the dream of the dolphin." And "man" meaning Dolph Lundgren.
Check out the poster for this amazing story below, courtesy of Old Red Jalopy. And yeah, it's also available in 2D, if you want to be a jackass and not see it in 3D.

Dear lord, how did L.A. not collapse under the weight of all this testosterone?
It was manly men galore as Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme and other towers of power walked the red carpet in Hollywood in celebration of "The Expendables 2," the rough and tumble tale of dudes with guns, knives, bazookas and attitude.
Check out our collection of pics from the premiere and get ready for the bullet-ridden extravaganza that is "The Expendables 2," in theaters on Aug. 17.
What happens when you put the greatest action heroes of all time into one movie? You get the epic explosion of badassery that is "The Expendables 2."
Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis and Jean-Claude Van Damme lead this sequel to the successful 2010 action film about a band of hired mercenaries. Although they're one cohesive unit, with so much testosterone gathered in one movie, we couldn't help but pit these actors against each other to see who can really be considered the most badass, based on their fighting style, muscle mass, studliness, weapons expertise and one-liners from their entire filmographies.
Whether they're a martial arts master, a skilled sniper or a bodacious bodybuilder, read on to see who's really the least expendable of "The Expendables 2" cast. Get More »
Manly men like action movies. And steak. And watching oiled-up gym rats wrestle until one is pinned down and submits to the other's brawny powers. (We'd say that men "love" these things, but manly men find that word too submissive.)
So, when Sylvester Stallone gathered some of the biggest names (and biceps) of the action star pantheon together for an epic ensemble piece entitled "The Expendables" back in 2010, he forged the manliest merger since the X chromosome collided with the Y. And on the heels of that triumph, "The Expendables 2" will be flooding theaters with testosterone yet again on Aug. 17. Get More »
In 2010, 65-year-old Sylvester Stallone, along with a whole roster of the biggest action stars of all-time, proved his twilight years are gonna be more like "punch your lights out" years with the explosive team-up "The Expendables."
Now these tough guys are ratcheting up the manpower and the action with "The Expendables 2," and IGN got Sly himself to intro the new full-length trailer. Better strap on a Kevlar vest before you hit play, people. Get More »
Summer 2010 started with neither a bang nor a whimper – more like a "meh." Highly anticipated blockbusters fizzled with both critics and moviegoers, leaving some feeling like the dogs days of summer were arriving even before its solstice.
Then came June and July.
We laughed, we cried at "Toy Story 3." We had our minds blown by "Inception." And we were happy to report that "Eclipse" was the best "Twilight" movie by a landslide. Get More »
