Any movie fan worth his or her salt should be able to tell you that Swedish man-mountain Dolph Lundgren's break-out performance as an actor was his portrayal of the Russian boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky IV. But, what most people don't know is that Lundgren actually studied to be a chemical engineer until his friendship with singer-actress Grace Jones and a chance encounter with celebrated artist Andy Warhol propelled him into show business. In a recent appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Lundgren discussed his unusual entrée into acting, his latest movie, The Expendables 2, and his new non-scripted Reelz series debuting next spring, Race to the Scene, in which pairs of contestants race to and from actual movie locations as they compete in challenges and stunts inspired by memorable movie moments.
