Nah, looks like sean penn will take the action roles neeson passes on that don't involve a son or daughter in danger. daniel denzel washington likes doing the old man action movies too.
With the way no new action heroes are showing up and having staying power he probably is symbolically.
The last guy I can think of who has a shot is The Rock and he's not that young anymore and hasn't really capitalized on his potential to be a big action hero. I use to think that joint with Johnny Knoxville and those other lesser ones were warm ups to bigger action flicks. Now he's trying to ride this superhero movie wave by being a anti-villain/villain.
I mean how come The Rock doesn't have his own franchise the way way Jackie Chan had his, Gibson had Lethal Weapon, Willis had Die Hard, Ford, Van Damme, Arnold, etc.
Won't even get to there really being nobody else I can think of.
