Terry Crews has spent much of his career moving between action and comedy, and so slots right in to The Expendables franchise, where he’s able to combine his talents. We sat down with the actor – who plays Hale Caesar – to discuss what it was like to be on set for this explosive production.

Crews discusses working alongside so many of his idols, and also what he expects from The Expendables in the future – predicting possible franchise cross-overs, such as the Fast & Furious pictures. He also tells us who would win an arm wrestling contest on set, and what we’d need to do to become an Expendable.

The Expendables 3 is released in cinemas on August 14th.
