The Expendables 2 London Premiere

I went to London for the U.K. premiere of "The Expendables 2", starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Chuck Norris, Jean-Claude van Damme, Jason Statham and many more. For the U.K. premiere Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Statham, Lundgren, Van Damme, Adkins and director Simon West came to London.

I was very happy that I was able to meet Jason Statham. Statham is mostly known for movies like "The Transporter" trilogy, "Snatch" and "The Expendables". He signed my poster of "The Expendables" and posed for a photo.
 Director Simon West is also known for directing movies like "Con Air", "Tomb Raider" and "Stolen". He signed my poster of "The Expendables 2" and posed for a photo.
 Scott Adkins is the henchman of Van Damme in "The Expendables 2". He signed my poster of "The Expendables 2" and posed for a photo.
Although I've got signatures of Jean-Claude van Damme and Dolph Lundgren, I was not able to get new pictures with the action-heroes. 

The Expendables 2 - After Party @ Hippodrome

When the premiere for "The Expendables 2" was finished, an after-party for the movie was being held at the Hippodrome Casino not far from the Empire Theatre. I found the location of the after-party by accident, but I was able to add two more pictures with celebrities to my collection. 

 Michelle Rodriguez ("Avatar", "S.W.A.T.", "World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles" and "The Fast & Furious" franchise) was in London, because she is filming Fast & Furious 6 in the U.K. at the moment. Nice of her to atted the party. When I saw her walking towards the venue I asked her for a picture and she was happy to do it.
Scott Adkins is , except for "The Expendables 2"also starring in action movies like "Undisputed 2". I met him at the premiere a few hours before, but I was able to get a better picture with him this time.

Long Day's Journey Into Night @ Apollo Theatre

During my last trip to London I went to only one theatre stagedoor to meet the actors. This time I went to the Apollo Theatre where David Suchet and Laurie Metcalf are starring in a play called "Long Day's Journey Into Night".

David Suchet is mostly known for his part as Hercule Poirot in the British TV-show "Poirot". For me he signed my DVD-covers of "Flood" and "The Bank Job". He was also friendly enough to pose for a picture.
Laurie Metcalf is mostly known for her part in the American sitcom "Roseanne". She is also known for her parts in movies like "Scream 2", "Toy Story" and "JFK". She signed my DVD-covers of "Toy Story, "Internal Affairs" and "Scream 2" and was also willing to pose for a photo.
