here is the video but you can only watch it from the UK

Can't be missing much with a shameful title like "Loose Women" - yich :x. The UK can keep their adulteress women all to themselves. it does the rest of us a favor :o .


Hey, sex sells. Plus the title is kinda parodical and used "loosely". It's basically a show for middle-aged house wifes, presented by middle-aged women, even most of the guests (eg Dolph) are for them to swoon over. Why must everything be so politically correct? Next you'll be telling us you don't approve of Dolph blowing people to fucking bits. :wink:

That's the American paradox for ya, violence is not "frowned upon", (it's even valued and sometimes a claimed right), but everything else (sex and alcohol of course, and I shall even add culture and education to some extent) is repressed and taboo. I shall stop here so that it doesn't end up as another endless off topic debate.

Wow... Just "wow", Nathan. "blowing people"? Really?

No, the fact that you have sex with many anonymous men makes you a loose woman. Just stop doing that and you're good.

Apparently, you have never been to the midwest! I'm not sure what mischief people would get into without alcohol! :wink:

And no, not Christianity, just certain denominations. I haven't found one non-drinking Catholic in the midwest yet. :lol: I haven't been to the west coast, so can't say much about them. But pretty much every state I have been to or even different regions within the same state tend to have a different culture/climate to it.

Would love to see the video too. Seems like he has really shown his humorous side of late. I am still hoping for another comedic/action flick. :)

Oh wow, how did I miss this movie? On my list, thanks!

Dolph Lundgren flexes his muscle in 'The Expendables'

It has been 15 years since Dolph Lundgren kicked some bad-guy butt in a major U.S. theatrical release.

Now the Swedish action star returns, delivering all the bone-crushing moves fans can handle in the new summer war caper, "The Expendables."

"We wanted to make a film that hasn't been made for a long time," Lundgren told CTV's Canada AM on Thursday.

"Forty years ago studios took Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster and John Wayne and put then in action flicks. Not any more," says the 52-year-old actor.

Directed by Sylvester Stallone, Lundgren joins Sly, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Jet Li on screen in this tribute to the action blockbusters of a bygone era.

Big guns are everywhere in this US$85 million-dollar adventure about a group of mercenaries who travel to South America to take down a cold-blooded dictator.

"We had some competition on set," Lundgren laughs.

"I didn't have the biggest arms," he confesses.

Lundgren also got clipped in his fight scenes with Li, a man half his size who is known for his martial arts skills rather than his use of brute force.

No one will notice in the film's flawless, high-octane action sequences.

That, says Lundgren, should appeal to fans who grew up with these '80s action heroes, as well as new audiences.

"Younger moviegoers who are getting tired of back-flips and CGI effects will like this story," says Lundgren. "What you see here is all real."

Lundgren's got brains, not just brawn

Born in Stockholm, Sweden, the former championship weightlifter and black-belt student is more than a muscle head.

Lundgren speaks five languages and holds a master's degree in chemical engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology.

In 1983, Lundgren was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Lundgren quit after two weeks to become an actor.

In 1985, the fledgling star made his film debut as a KGB henchman in the James Bond film, "A View to a Kill."

His big film breakthrough, however, came in 1985's "Rocky IV." Lundgren wowed fans as the merciless Russian boxer, Ivan Drago, who ended the life of Rocky's friend and sometimes rival Apollo Creed.

Lundgren has since made more than 40 action pics, including 1987's "Masters of the Universe," 1992's "Universal Soldier," and the 1995 Keanu Reeves hit, "Johnny Mnemonic."

The maturing, 6-foot, 5-inch star took on a new challenge in 2004, directing his first film, "The Defender." Other features directed by Lundgren include 2005's "The Mechanik" and 2007's "Missionary Man."

Aging on screen is a concern. But Lundgren says he faces the same challenges as anyone else. "You've got to fight it by working out and watching your diet," he says.

The former MIT brain also looks ahead with no regrets.

"I thought it (acting) would be more exciting than shaking test tubes," smiles Lundgren. Maybe I'll shake some more test tubes when I grow up.

I like it. He's found a really pleasant way of behaving during interviews now, these past couple of years. It's good.

Sly and Dolph on Entertainment Tonight :D

"I don't like Swedish people at all; they're too tall, too handsome, too tough -- it just gets to you," says Sly with a smile. "He just stepped up and nailed it, and I wish I had more screen time for him because [Dolph plays] just one of those interesting, duplicitous characters you love, hate 'em, love, hate 'em."

Thanks.
He seems to be serious about looking for a Swedish project to do. I'd like that.

Yeah I've heard him talk about Swedish projects wince JOHNNY MNEMONIC but it was hard hard to get off the ground, now it's been a couple of years he's seriously working on it and with all the recent Dolph-mania in Sweden it's a good time to do it! 8)
