The Expendables Cartoon

The Expendables Cartoon

Today folks is a special treat.  As I typically struggle with just one caricature in a cartoon, this week I had FOUR.

Sylvester Stallone’s new movie, The Expendables, was released on Friday.  It’s both a whos who and a whos that of action films.  The main guy in this cartoon is former Everybody Hates Chris dad, Terry Crews.  Before that show (and to some of you now) he is one of those “That Guys” in Hollywood where you might not know his name but you definitely have seen him in plenty of movies including the classic “White Chicks”.

But as I got to thinking about the other cast, they are known for either being misunderstood, monotone or mumbling their lines.

– Stallone – Mumbler
– Arnold Schwarzenegger – Misunderstood
– Li – Mumbler (and sometimes Misunderstood)
– Roarke – Mumbler and Misunderstood
– Jason Statham – Monotone
– Dolph Lundgren – Misunderstood
– Randy Coutoure – A who’s that unless you are a UFC fan (and I have never heard him talk)
– Stone Cold Steve Austin – A who’s that unless you are a Wrestling fan (but he has great mic skills)

So I could see Crews in this movie saying he wasn’t expendable as even the enemy needs him to interpret what these other guys are saying.  Yet I love all these guys movies because I am an action junky.  Though I think they should have included Richard Roundtree.

  2. susi spice says:

    That guy from Everybody hates chris and white chicks is CLASSIC. he was hilarious in white chicks lol i loved it when one of the wayan brothers falls on him..takes off his mask and Terry says “youre youre…white!” haha oh good memories..

  3. gallowaygrave says:

    Bearman, thanks for putting me off the film!

  4. bschooled says:

    Awesome, B!

    I don’t know the other guys, but Rocky is looking…well, Rocky, and Arnie is in fine form. (“It’s notta tumah…”-sorry, I always have to say that. It’s like a disease or something.)

    ps. I’m trying to figure out stumbleupon as we speak. For some reason I always have problems with that account. I’ll be back!

    • Ron-Yves says:

      Remember in Rocky when he tries to get Adrian back into his apartment by telling her he had cupcakes in there? I still use that line to this day—thanks Sly!

    • Bearman says:

      Classic Arnie line.

      I had some issues with SU too at the beginning. I think I have worked out 90% of my issues.

  5. Ron-Yves says:

    haha—I love this one Bearman…very funny…for more than a few reasons…

    What mean expendable?

  6. lisleman says:

    I’m not into action flicks much. I don’t understand how a Governor of CA can be in a movie while Governor. Or ex-gov Blago must really be jealous.

    I was catching up a bit and looked at a few previous posts.
    Good think you didn’t pickup on any “bear culture” action flicks.

    • Bearman says:

      Do you know something that I dont?

      Arnie only worked 1-2 days (so it was like a weekend) and I believe he donated his salary to charity.

  7. Jande says:

    Heh, the only guy I recognise is the guy from “Rocky”. But that’s not because of the art, its because I don’t watch TV, and only a very few movies. To me, all TV and most movies are “expendable”. ;`)

    • Bearman says:

      Not me. I think I could be a successful cartoonists if I wasn’t addicted to the media.

      • Bo Lumpkin says:

        I have just abiut given it up completely since I staryted cartooning buty themm I have OCD.

          • Bo Lumpkin says:

            I was on my Blackberry and couldn’t see what I was typing with my big clumsy thumbs. I actually was saying I have almost given up TV since I started cartooning but that’s because I may have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and can’t quit drawing and writing.

        • Jande says:

          Oh! Is THAT what it’s called?! I always just thought it was the way creative people generally behave. Obsessive-Compulsive is a pretty good description of me, kind of the opposite of Attention Deficit Disorder. LOL
          I have a bi-polar, passive-agressive toaster though. :`)

  8. nursemyra says:

    Jason Statham does it for me 😉

  9. Friggin Loon says:

    More steroids that the Chinese Olympic team !!!!

  10. DadaHyena says:

    Reminds me of Mumbles from “Dick Tracy” (he was in both the comics and the movie, played by Dustin Hoffman). No one could understand the guy except for his henchmen.

    Now, a whole crew of guys talking like this should drive any audience insane.

  11. I can’t decide if the movie will be good or bad but I love the caricatures on this panel Bearman. I’d love to see the whole movie poster done in this vein.

  12. Tony says:

    Your caricatures look better than those guys do in real life. I’d like to see Arnie at the top of the stairs that Sly runs to the top of in Rocky then say to him “Come with me if you want to live” then Sly tries to punch Arnie in the face with a right hook but Arnie then says “I’ll be back” but Sly replies with “Prepare to be judged” but before he can judge him Arnie says “Hasta La Vista Baby” & gets lowered into a vat of molten metal

  13. jammer5 says:

    Now that’s a great toon. And I expect I’ll see the movie and wish I had the cracker man to interpret it for me.

  14. jillsy says:

    I only recognize Arnie and Stallone and I don’t like Stallone.

    • Bearman says:

      Yo Jillsy!! Slys line to you: “Listen,I wanna kiss you. You don’t have to kiss me back if you don’t wanna. I wanna kiss you.””

  15. David says:

    HA! Bearman, I love this! It reminds me of that SNL skit with Frankenstein, Tonto, and Tarzan singing Christmas carols.

  16. MJ says:

    Ha,ha,ha what a riot!

  17. George says:

    I would like to see this movie. If I could sit thru Ocean’s 11-13, I’m sure I can make it thru this one. 😀

  18. Gruff Guano says:

    Sly is drawn very well. The others too, but that caricature is neat.

    I don’t feel like seeing this movie either. they should have called it

    “Have beens’ last fundraising”

    • Bearman says:

      Number 1 movie of the week so looks like the old guys can still draw them in.

      I am waiting for them to take Mickey Rooney, Dick Van Dyke and someone else and remake the Sunshine Boys.

  19. I just have to go and check out that film.
    You’ve sold it

  20. SpilledInkGuy says:

    Hahaha … is it subtitled?! 🙂

  21. John K says:

    this realization has caused me to rethink going to see it…. I guess I’ll just have to go see Scott Pilgrim again…. ho hum

  22. if only this movie had nicolas cage, it would be an all-star cast.

  23. Brad says:

    Gotta tell you though, after all these years listening to Stallone, interpreting his mumbles became second nature!

    Loved the movie, by the way.

  24. Dan says:

    Dolph Lundgren is understandable, assuming he says “I must break you.” And since Stallone is in this movie I’m going to assume he said it just for kicks – Rocky IV, ah, memories.

  25. I saw the trailer for this movie last night. I was impressed by the line up but questioned if its worth a watch.

    I hope I can understand it. 🙂

  26. I am looking forward to seeing this movie. your right about the fact most of them are misunderstood or mumblers. Nice comic.
