Turns out they’re not so expendable after all.

Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis will reprise their cameo roles for Sylvester Stallone’s upcoming The Expendables sequel, though the parts are described by reps at CAA as “sizable” this time around. The movie is aiming for release Aug. 17, 2012.

In the original, the veteran action stars show up for a scene in which bids are placed on a job to take down a ruthless (is there any other kind?) Latin American dictator. Willis was the anonymous “Mr. Church,” soliciting the bids, while Schwarzenegger — then still governor of California — was Stallone’s cigar-chomping rival solider-for-hire Trent Mauser.

“Only an ee-dee-ot vud do dis job,” Mauser declares, before peacing out.

“What’s his problem?” Willis’ character asks.

“He wants to be president,” Stallone grumbles. Take a look at the NSFW clip.

Wait a second … that would make a great plot device for the next film: President Mauser! And it could give Schwarzenegger a new catchphrase: “Only an ee-dee-ot vud do dis job!”
