Now is the season of the disaffected mercenary.
From the World War II antics of the "Inglourious Basterds" to Sly Stallone's all-star "Expendables," soldiers for hire are constantly being sent into shady situations and betrayed. Heck, even "The A-Team" is coming to the big screen.
The latest addition to the trend is Columbus Short, who according to The Hollywood Reporter has joined the cast of "The Losers." The story, based on a DC Comics series, follows a Special Forces black-ops group who are set up, thus fueling a quest for revenge. Short is set to play the team's gunner.
