“I might be going back there for 'The Expendables 3'. I'm up for the lead villain,” he told Movieweb.

Adding more grist to the mill, he then went on to shower director Sylvester Stallone with praise for his support.

“How about Sly, coming back like that?” he said. “Isn't that great? He gave me my first real break in Lock Up. I love the guy. He's never, ever turned his back on me.

“I don't know if people know that Sylvester Stallone is one of the most decent gentlemen that I've ever met. He's the most consistent friend I've ever had.”

Various veteran stars have been mooted for the sequel, including the likes of Jackie Chan, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes.
