"So I'd have a certain [advantage]," he admitted, acknowledging he's got some serious size over his former costars (Lundgren is 6ft5), "Maybe I'd have a shot."
"But I like those guys so, you know, I don't want to want to hurt anybody," Lundgren, who is a former European karate champion, said diplomatically. "I'm a pacifist ... except in the movies."
When asked if he sparred a bit with Weathers after a recent reunion, Lundgren joked, "Maybe in the next movie, you know?... I don't know, maybe 'Expendables 4,' you know, it'd be great. I mean he looks great so it'd be good to be together on the same side for a change, with Stallone too."
Lundgren also weighed in on a quotable line from his "Rocky IV" character, which has become a popular meme. At one point in the 1985 film, while being interviewed after possibly killing Creed (Weathers), Drago (Lungren) simply says, "If he dies, he dies."
"Well, I didn't write that line," he said when asked if he should make money off the memes. "You know, Stallone wrote it so he can get the money. You know, I just said it. I'll come up with my own shit. He's a clever guy, that's for sure."
Lundgren's Ivan Drago character from "Rocky IV" made a return to the franchise for "Creed II" where trains his son to face-off against Apollo's son, Creed.
