Jean-Claude Van Damme Hates Not Working

Jean-Claude Van DammeJean-Claude Van Damme gets "depressed" when he isn't working.

The Expendables 2 actor even hates having down time between scenes because it makes him "cranky and bored," but says the unhappiness is worth it because he comes alive in front of a camera.

"I get depressed between the shoots. When it's finished, when you are a bad guy in the movie, with that type of entity in your mind, you go back to your hotel and make faces. I'm very cranky, I get bored, I look at my table for hours and then when I get called for the movie I'm still bored in my trailer. But when the director says 'action' that's where I'm supposed to be. I want that experience. To be an actor it's hard unless you can come in and come out. I cannot do that, it's got to be all the way for me."

Jean-Claude credits the film, and its writer, Sylvester Stallone - who also stars in the movie - for resurrecting his career and helping him become a better actor.

Liam Hemsworth Joins Expendables Sequel

Liam HemsworthMiley Cyrus' ex Actor Liam Hemsworth has joined the cast of The Expendables 2. The Hunger Games actor will play a sniper in the forthcoming blockbuster sequel, though no other details of his exact role in the film have yet been revealed.

Liam is the latest in a long line of stars to be confirmed for the cast of the action film, which will be directed by Simon West. Sylvester Stallone heads the movie, reprising his role as team leader Barney Ross, with Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Terry Crews and Randy Couture also returning. In addition, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis, who made cameo appearances in the original 2010 movie, will also return, but with their roles expanded.

Other newcomers to the series include Jean-Claude Van Damme, Nicolas Cage, John Travolta and Chuck Norris. "We'll have a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time, so it should be a good one. We've got Chuck Norris. I think Nic Cage. We're trying to work out different scenarios. I like using people that had a moment and then maybe have fallen on some hard times and give them another shot," Stallone said.

The Expendables 2 is due in cinemas in August 2012.
