Aww, poor Jean-Claude Van Damme. Nobody'll give that guy a break (well, except for the Alamo Drafthouse, who is celebrating him with a Van Dammage marathon). He just wants to be a trainer in the Bloodsport remake; is that asking so much? No, no it isn't.
"I want to be in the film as a trainer and I don't think the writer wants [me] to ... he knows that 'Bloodsport' is a big film so he wants to get credit with all of that — you know what I'm saying? When I did the first 'Bloodsport,' it was an independent company and [they] didn't want bankruptcy, so they sold the title all over the place - 2,3,4,5,6 'Bloodsports.' The remake, I would love to be in it. It's kind of painful, but maybe they'll change their minds. That would be great because I can still kick better than anybody here today."
Let this dude throw some kicks. I think he's earned it.
