Um, has Kelsey Grammer convinced everybody he's some kind of action star now or something? Seriously, did we miss that memo, Hollywood?

'Cause according to Deadline, he's now joined the cast of "The Expendables 3," a shoot-'em-up-bang-banger purposefully stuffed with pretty much all the muscular man meat — or, as the first installment coined to it, "the only men you're allowed to love" — the genre has had to offer over the past four decades.

'Grudge Match' Trailer: The Italian Stallion Vs. Raging Bull, 30 Some-Odd Years Later

Both Robert De Niro and Sylvester Stallone got early career praise for their turns as big screen pugilists. De Niro nabbed his second Oscar win for portraying the complicated and oft vicious Jake La Motta in the now-classic Martin Scorsese film "Raging Bull" and Sly, well, he's still pumping out those "Rocky" movies, the first one of which earned him his only two Academy noms way back in '77.

So, the story of "Grudge Match" bringing back the aged scamps for another round in the ring thirty-plus years after their heydays isn't too far off the mark, actually. Get More »

Ah, Hollywood people problems. As you probably know, film investors rarely have a household name outside of the biz the way that the stars and most esteemed directors do, but it's their stacks of cash that make the production world go 'round. Actors are replaceable, and — as we saw with the wild west that was the set of "Jane Got a Gun" — even directors come and go. But the money people, they are the clutch and if they pull the plug, well, it's quittin' time for everybody.

But "Reach Me" director John Herzfeld, with the help of his long-time pal and central star Sylvester Stallone, aims to finish what he started on this passion project and raise the funds needed to make up for what a runaway investor has lost them by way of a Kickstarter campaign. Get More »

A seventh installment to that long-lived bruiser "Rocky" franchise is happening, people, but before you start groaning, you should know that this time Mr. Balboa won't be throwing himself into the ring again ('cause, yah, that would just be absurd. Enough already). Instead, he'll be rustling up the old gloves to train none other than Apollo Creed's grandson.

And, yo, Adrian, we kinda like that idea. Get More »
