Brittany Murphy Is Expendable Too

Here I was thinking that The Expendables, Sly Stallone's mercenary movie, was just a boy's club. But Brittany Murphy apparently has the keys to get inside the inner circle, and has landed a part in the film as Mickey Rourke's girlfriend, a nightclub singer.

I realize that Rourke is Oscar-nominated and on top of the world right now, but has the 56-year-old "ground up piece of meat" really earned a 30-year-old on-screen girlfriend? THR also isn't explaining where Murphy will fit into the story, given that most of the film takes place in Brazil, where Rourke, Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Randy Couture are all on a mission to overthrow a dictator.

David Zayas, who plays Angel Batista on Dexter, has also joined the cast. But I think he can understand that, since he's not making out with Mickey Rourke onscreen, we're paying a little less attention to his role.
