Dolph Lundgren interview: Universal Soldier, Expendables 3, musicals

By and Tom Mansell

Dolph Lundgren tussled with Sylvester Stallone in Rocky IV, Jean-Claude Van Damme in Universal Soldier and made up part of the musclebound Expendables gang with the likes of Jason Statham, Jet Li and Stone Cold Steve Austin.

There's no doubt about it, Lundgren is an action icon to be reckoned with.

As well as the above films, he's starred in Masters of the Universe (as He-Man), John Woo's Blackjack (an assassin scarred of the colour white - cue final act shoot-out at a milk factory) and Command Performance (a rock drummer who saves the President).

A man of many talents, Lundgren's resume also boasts six movies as a director, a 3rd dan black belt in Kyokushin Karate, a degree in chemical engineering and a stint as co-host on a reality show to find Sweden's entrant for the Eurovision Song Contest.

With Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning on the horizon, Digital Spy sat down with Lundgren to discuss life as an action hero and, perhaps, becoming a song and dance man.

"I am a little bit of a musical fan," he said. "I used to play drums when I was a kid, play the trombone. It's like engineering - it's hard to work into action movies.

"I haven't done it in front of an audience too much, but why not? I could do some of that too."

Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning is released on DVD and Blu-ray on February 11.
