Default The next action star?

We had Stallone and Schwarzenegger.... Now alas they are too old to be taken seriously in a real action movie. Who is the next action star that you think will emerge? You know the type, cheesy sometimes but someone who is likable.

I would agree with that statement, although I have not seen I am legend, it's on it way, should be here by friday.

Men in black and independence day are the 2 Will Smith movies that I own and like. I really don't believe in double dipping, so the standard dvd's will have to do for those.

Jason Statham, perhaps?

But I agree with Will Smith already being there.

Agreed, they made some good action movies, but have you seen a recent Stegall movie that was good? I'm talking about the next action star, the guys you listed granted made some good movies, however they are past their prime.

I personally prefer to not see guys get type-casted (even though I'm not a Will Smith Fan anyways) because you see studios "FORCE" out movies to try to placate to the actors, and the plot comes second-hand. I prefer the lesser-known actors or actors crossing their typical genres because you don't know what to expect..... I see Stallone do a drama, and I think "Rambo, Rocky, etc" and it takes away from the movie, because he made a name for himself as a type-casted actor before he started to take other roles.

That's why Daniel Day Lewis is so widely liked.... people say "oh he was great in...." and other people say "oh wow...that was him, didn't even realize that"

Never thought I would say this but The Rock is quickly becoming the next Arnold.

And he's actually a pretty good actor.

The Rock FTW

Statham is a good call, liked the Transporter (despised part 2). I still have yet to see War.

Yeah, the Rock is a likable character and I hope to see more of him in action movies, ala Doom but better (although I must admit a guilty pleasure).

The Rock is also good. Walking Tall was a good movie. I think he would make a good Terminator.

Showdown in Little Tokyo was a great Dolph Lundgren movie, also had Branden Lee in it too.

The Rock has the menacing look of a Terminator. Unlike some of the actors they had playing them in the TV show.
