DL not impressed with the trend of women kicking ass in movies (from the above interview):

"Interviewer; Angelina Jolie also played a sleeper agent in Salt recently — theoretically, if her Evelyn Salt was to face-off against your Edward Genn in a martial arts battle, who’d win?

Dolph: Well… even though it’s very much in vogue for female characters to kill people on screen, unfortunately, in real life, females are quite weak.

Interviewer: Dolph, you big cuddly feminist, you!

Dolph:But it’s true! Even the smallest man could kill the most well-trained woman in the world — the female body is different. So yeah, Genn would stand a pretty good chance of winning."
Spring, era jävlar!

Train like Dolph!
Dress like Dolph!
Drink like Dolph!
The first day we did a foreign press junket for The Expendables, I showed up in a light grey Yves Saint Laurent suit. Sly was there, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Terry Crews: all the big guys. They were all in different T-shirts and I was in a suit. They took a picture for Entertainment Weekly or I don't know who it was and I stood out a little bit. The next day Sly showed up and he was in a suit. And now he's always in suits. I don't know if I had anything to do with it but it looks good on him. He's an older guy, people respect him a lot and it just works. It's much better than trying to dress young when you're not.

That's an amazing interview. A lot of interesting stuff, not just the same old, same old.

The workout stuff for example, is cool to read about. His different programs.

Sounds like the part in a Bruce Willis movie he may or not do:
I'm working on this character who's... kind of a colorful. I may do it in a movie. In Sexy Beast, Ben Kingsley plays a mobster. I saw part of it on the plane, but now I want to see the whole thing because I heard he's doing an animal. You know how there are these animal exercises in acting to help your character? He's doing like a German Shepherd. He talks like a dog, very aggressive. So I wanted to check this out, because I'm playing a hitman and I'm a wolf for that. Wolves are kinda predatory, kinda cool in some ways. Different from dogs. So I was thinking of doing that, checking out Ben Kingsley and what he did.

Have you used that acting exercise in your other films?

I haven't used it in a film before. I've done it in class. The reason I thought of it was because they call him "The Wolf," this Tarantino-ish character. He kills a lot of people but is very likeable and fun. He has a good sense of humor. I thought I'd try that, and it seems to work to make him like a wolf, to walk a certain way and do a thing with your shoulders where you're like the alpha dog. [Laughs.] Well, they're all dogs, but wolves have more of an intensity about them, more of a purpose when they a walk. A dog is just trucking along.

So this is research for a part, but I don't even know if I'm doing it.


The Wolf is a Russian hitman, so one aspect is maybe that he walks that way. And maybe when he fights, he can [Snarls violently.], maybe a crazy thing. Kinda like a growl, because he kills all these people, mostly with his hands. And he can dress impeccably, maybe in all white, but he doesn't want any specks to soil any of his clothing. [Laughs.] But this hitman is very comedic in the way that he moves and talks. He starts crying talking about who he had to kill, and then he takes a swig of vodka and just goes [Adopts thick Russian accent.], "So I must get myself on a team, get on the payroll." He just switches, a psychotic personality, which is fun.
