Westwood High School graduate and UT  alumnus Glen Powell has landed a role that puts him in some serious action-hero company. The young actor is starring in ‘Expendables 3,’ alongside Sylvester Stallone, Harrison Ford, Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas.

Powell is a busy man, with more than a half dozen movies either recently completed or in some stage of production. The actor, who graduated from Westwood in 2007, got his start in movies with 2003’s “Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over” and has appeared in more than a dozen movies and TV shows, including “The Dark Knight Rises” and Austin filmmaker Kat Candler’s “Jumping off Bridges.”
