— During a press event for the new film “Red”, actor Bruce Willis was asked about the rumored sequel to the summer blockbuster film “The Expendables.”

Willis told ComingSoon.net that the sequel is happening and said everybody’s favorite beer-drinking rattlesnake will be involved:

“I talked to Sly and he’s going for all the marbles this time, and he’s going to get everybody in this time. Even Stone Cold Steve Austin who took two bullets in the last film, he’s coming back, too. Hopefully, they’ll start shooting it while we’re young enough to survive.”

— Democratic state Attorney General Richard Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon met last night in the first debate of the general election to replace retiring Democratic Senator Christopher Dodd. Cable news channel CSPAN has posted video of the debate online, which you can view here.
