Hollywood movie star Sylvester Stallone talks about Rain during an interview with "Entertainment Weekly" [KBS2]

Asian superstar Rain was offered a role in Sylvester Stallone's upcoming action pic "The Expendables," according to the Hollywood heavyweight.

In an interview with KBS2 TV's showbiz news program "Entertainment Weekly," which aired Saturday evening, Stallone explained that he had asked Rain to appear in "Expendables."

"I haven't visited [Korea] but I am familiar with some of the people... We almost used a Korean actor called Rain," explained the legendary action star. "I wanted him to play like [Chinese actor] Jet Li's son or his brother or something in there... I thought it would have been great."

He said that Rain was doing a tour when they were filming the movie however, and could not appear in the film.

Stallone, 64, is considered one the biggest Hollywood stars who has appeared in numerous movies during his forty-year acting career. He is best-known for the hit franchises "Rocky" and "Rambo" which each turned out six and four films in its series.

"Expendables," about a team of top-notch mercenaries trying to take out a South American dictator, will feature special cameos by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Stallone, who stars in the film, also co-wrote and directed the pic.

The film is set for a U.S. release next month.
