Terry Crews has revealed there was a rivalry over parking spaces on The Expendables 3 set.

The Brooklyn Nine-Nine star, who reprises his role as barrel weapons specialist Hale Caesar in the third instalment of the action franchise, admitted there was no battle of egos, just their entourages, as actors such as Mel Gibson, Harrison Ford and Wesley Snipes joined the star-studded cast.

"The hardest thing about The Expendables 3 set were the limos. There were limos everywhere," he said.

"There was nowhere to park because Mel had four SUV limos, Arnold's (Schwarzenegger) got to have five SUV limos so it became this big parking (competition). It was really wild. You can tell how big a star is by how many SUV limos they have on the set."

The 46-year-old actor added: "I got one - no, I had half of one, they gave me a budget version of a limo. One day, I'm going to get 14 and be the man."

Terry said returning to make the third film alongside Sylvester Stallone, Arnie and Jason Statham was "an honour and a privilege".

" This is something I dreamed about since I was a kid. Boys mature a lot later than girls do. I was playing with toys when I was 22," he explained.

"Now we get to do this for real. We're in real locations, they've given us real guns and we get to fire them. Who doesn't want to do that?"

But the funnyman admitted he had to rein in his jokey side, saying: " You don't want to play a prank on a guy who has 40 bodyguards. They're gonna get you back one day."

:: The Expendables 3 opens in cinemas on August 14.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant


A pragmatist like you prefers to rely on facts and figure to make decisions. The hard data you want will not be available, forcing you to rely on your intuition. You must get in touch with your instincts. Tune in to your body's signals. Your stomach will tell you which direction to take. When it gives a painful twinge, you should change paths. When it flutters with excitement, you should move forward. This will be a surprisingly accurate barometer. Don't disparage it.More
