The Expendables movie franchise is the gift that just keeps giving us more geriatric stars, explosions, incomprehensible plots, and stolen iconic one-liners. It’s amazing and I love it. Soon my love may be shared, as Fox is developing a series with producer Sylvester Stallone. According to Deadline, the series “…is described as a fun action drama that unites iconic TV stars as a new team of highly-skilled heroes who are on a mission to stop a dangerous terrorist.”

Soooo, basically ‘The A-Team’ with more mumbling and less Boy George appearances? I WILL TAKE IT.

But who shall we cast? Which iconic television action stars would be perfection for the amount of cheese and violence inherent in The Expendables: The TV Series? Let’s begin with the obvious choice:

1. Mr. T - The A-Team

2. Chuck Norris - Walker, Texas Ranger and The Expendables 2 co-star

3. Ron Perlman - Sons of Anarchy

4. Dominic Purcell - Prison Break

5. Lucy Lawless - Xena: Warrior Princess

6. Dean Cain - Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman

7. Philip Michael Thomas - Miami Vice

8. Richard Grieco - 21 Jump Street

9. Gina Torres - Firefly

10. Richard Dean Anderson - McGyver
