If you believe the internet, Chuck Norris can literally do everything and anything. Strictly speaking, we're not sure if that's true or not, be we do know one thing Norris can definitely do: Co-star in "The Expendables 2."

Okay, so the idea of Chuck Norris being expendable is patently ridiculous, but according to Entertainment Weekly, Norris isn't the only big name star set to join the 80's-style action franchise, as Jean-Claude Van Damme is also on board -- and there may be more to come as well.

"The Expendables," of course, was one of the surprise hits of last fall, thanks to writer/director/star Sylvester Stallone's decision to pack the cheese-fest with every washed-up action hero he could find, plus Jason Statham. And the sequel looks to be even more action packed, as Norris and JCVD join returning stars Stallone, Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren and Terry Crews as well as Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger, who apparently have much larger parts after just cameoinng in the first film.

But Stallone isn't done yet, because he still has his sights set on two more aging icons: Nic Cage and John Travolta.

"We'll have a big showdown between me and Van Damme, which has been anticipated for a long time, so it should be a good one," Stallone told EW. "We've got Chuck Norris and I think Nic Cage. We're trying to work out different scenarios. I like using people that had a moment and then maybe have fallen on some hard times and give them another shot. So we're always looking for actors like Michael Biehn and Michael Pare. I like those kinds of guys. Someone did it for me and I like to see if I can do it for them. We also need some new blood in there, a Navy Seal-type, because with the Expendables none of them have 20-20 vision anymore. They need some help, man."

And as for Travolta, well, "It's possible. The one thing I’ve learned is what is a fact on Monday is a complete fallacy on Tuesday," Stallone explained. "A lot of it is scheduling. It’s not financial. It’s just that Bulgaria is definitely a jaunt. It's a commitment, you know what I mean? Especially in the dead of winter."

We can't wait to hear what kind of Chuck Norris jokes they have in Bulgaria.
