SpoilerTV got a hold of a casting call sheet for the upcoming Crank 2: High Voltage, and it gives some details that are interesting but not too spoilerish. As we know, the premise here is that, after Chev’s big fall at the end of the first film, some Triads have “stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working. “
The film will also, based on this casting sheet, include some flashbacks involving a young Chev and possibly an explanation for why he’s such a fucking badass, a horny old man (the recipient of Chev’s heart) and, of course, Chev humping an old lady. It also looks like Dwight Yoakam and Amy Smart will be returning as Doc Miles and Eve, respectively. Here are some of the cooler bits:
Glenda Lansing: 65 plus, an old lady. The older the better. We first see her at the racetrack, she is assaulted by Chev, who rubs himself against her to get some static electricity into his system. She later, delightedly and profanely,relives the moment on live TV
Chinese Doctors #1 & Chinese Doctors #2: A pair of Chinese doctors, they perform a heart transplant operation on Chev, replacing his own beating ticker with an artificial heart. Wrongly convinced that Chev is too doped up to cause any trouble, they’re ready to harvest his testicles when Chev comes to and chokes them out.
Little Chev: 6-10, Caucasian, Male. A tough fowl mouthed British kid with a cockney accent. He is Chev (Jason Statham) seen in 1988, a bored, restless, troublemaker whose mother fears he is a sociopath. Seen on a Jerry Springer-ish UK talk show, he relives some of the incidents in his crowded young life — all of which seem to involve crime, violence and running.
Hu Dong: Chinese Male, 100 years old, this aged gangster is the leader of the Triad gang in Southern California. Rejuvenated after getting Chev’s high-powered heart transplanted into his sunken chest, and horny as a 16 year old, he is lured into Doc Miles’ clutches by the seductive Vanilla.

When filming “I Love Lucy” producers used tactics to make Ethel, Lucy’s foil, uglier on screen than she was in real life. This was done to put the focus on Lucy. A similar tactic seems to have been used in 2020’s Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn, by not giving any of the supporting actresses … Continue reading — By Sushi-X
