Stallone does Van Damme doing Stallone

We've seen plenty of people do great impressions of Sylvester Stallone, but who knew that the man himself could step up to the plate when it comes to imitation?

During our interview with Sly, he revealed a hitherto unknown talent for mimicry, as he impersonated Expendables co-stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Kurt Russell. But his real skill was the impression of Jean-Claude Van Damme doing an impression of Stallone. It's something we like to call the Inception impression.

The full interview is in this week's ShortList, but click the link below to hear an exclusive excerpt of Sly in full flow.
