Anyone out there hear a rumor about Jean-Claude Van Damme signing on to play a role in "Rush Hour 3"? Hmm. Apparently the aging action star has, but he was kind enough to squash that rumor … before anyone heard about it.
From Empire Online & Dark Horizons: "Van Damme’s rumoured inclusion was due to a passing joke he made that gotten taken out of context apparently and was blown-up by the media.
He told Empire Online that "It was just a comment, a joke, that I made during an interview. I said, ‘We’ve got Jackie (Chan), we’ve got Chris Tucker — what about me, making it a trio?’ And this became something"."
