One week.  That’s how long 50 Cent lasted as Forrest Whitaker’s replacement on The Expendables.  With no word on why, Stallone told Harry from AICN that 50 was being replaced by Terry Crews.  It’s a shame they lost Forrest Whitaker – with Stallone, Statham, Li, Trejo, Lundgren, Rourke, et al, they needed an Oscar winner for credibility.  Now there’s no guarantee that the movie isn’t going to be like wandering into a party that’s just a bunch of roided up old dudes flexing. (and who hasn’t been there?).  But Terry Crews certainly fits in better.  Forrest Whitaker doesn’t even take his shirt off at the pool.  ;-(
