Liam Hemsworth can soon be spotted in the upcoming movie Expendables 2. He recently took some time to talk about his new movie.
From Flicks and Bits :
In ‘The Expendables 2’ you play a new member to “The Expendables” team, Billy the Kid. Can you tell us about Billy when we meet him in the film?
Liam Hemsworth: Sure. Billy the Kid, he’s the new young gun “Expendable” in the group. He’s been trained as a sniper, he’s been in the army for three years. When we meet him in the film he’s just left the army, and “The Expendables” were looking for a new person for the group and he got the job. He’s a good kid, he’s a really good sniper. I’ve got a security guard friend who’s an ex-sniper, so I asked him a lot of questions about his missions, what he had been on, what it was like, what we wears, just the frame of mind and those kinds of things. That was kind of my research I guess, it was more about being really healthy and fit. I was running a lot, keeping it really militant I guess (laughs).
Billy the Kid has a great dynamic with Sylvester Stallone’s Barney Ross. Billy sort of sees Barney as a mentor and Barney really admires Billy because of his talent and his positive outlook…..
Liam Hemsworth: Definitely, Sylvester Stallone’s character Barnie Ross and Bill the Kid are similar, they’re both good guys who want to take down bad guys. They feel like they’re the best people to do it if someone’s going to do it, you know? Barney Ross is sort of like a father figure to Billy the Kid, he sees Billy as the new generation that he’s got to look after and train, they have a great affection for each other.They’re different because Billy basically comes to the realisation that he doesn’t want to do this for the rest of his life. It’s not that he doesn’t want to end up like these guys in “The Expendables”, I think he wants to have a real life, spend time with his girlfriend. And I think Barney understands that, he sees a guy full of hope and aspiration.
