    A View to a Kill [1985]
  • Although only appearing very briefly, this movie is Dolph Lundgren's first on-screen role, playing General Gogol's KGB bodyguard Venz. He landed the position because he was dating Grace Jones at the time of the filming, and was conveniently on set when director John Glen realized he quickly needed someone to fill in as a simple gun wielding body guard.
    The Expendables [2010]
  • Jean-Claude Van Damme was offered a role, but he turned it down claiming that there was no substance in the character. Rumor has it that Dolph Lundgren replaced him but actually the part of Scandinavian Gunnar Jensen was written by Sylvester Stallone with Lundgren in mind. Van Damme appears in The Expendables 2.
    The Expendables 2 [2012]
  • The film reveals that Gunnar Jensen earned an advanced degree in chemical engineering, then abandoned his science career to work as bouncer in order to impress a girl. Dolph Lundgren earned a chemistry degree from Washington State University in 1976, a chemical engineering degree from the Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm in the early 1980s, and a Master's Degree in Chemical Engineering from the University of Sydney in 1982. Lundgren walked away from a science career to work as bodyguard for his then-girlfriend Grace Jones. While stuck in the mine, Gunnar refers to himself as a "Fulbright Scholar," which Lundgren achieved in real life.
  • The sequel was considered seven months before The Expendables was completed and released in theaters. The first movie's plot was revised during filming so that Dolph Lundgren's character, who was killed in the first draft, could be saved for the sequel.
  • This is Jean-Claude Van Damme's fourth time working with both Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.
    The Expendables 3 [2014]
