Jean-Claude Van Damme back in the spotlight in Expendables 2

Finally the muscles from Brussels wins Hollywood

Jean-Claude Van Damme explodes onto screens this week in 'Expendables 2' along with arguably one of the greatest action cast of all time.

With Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Jason Statham and endless other action legends in one movie, will this film truly define a Jean-Claude Van Damme comeback?

He's been an underdog for years making movies that didn't hit the mainstream but history shows that Van Damme has the charisma to stand up to even the baddest of the bad. With 'Expendables 2' promising an overload of adrenaline, and the ultimate comeback of Arnold Schwarzenegger, Van Damme couldn't have picked a better time to make his name heard once more.

Some of Van Damme's classic movies include his collaboration with John Woo in 'Hard Target', and his iconic role in 'Universal Soldier' starring opposite Dolph Lundgren, who is also in 'Expendables 2'
