Did you think that the announcement that Eva Green had been given the role of Ava Lord was the last big piece of the casting puzzle for “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For?” I did–and I was wrong. Variety reports that Stacy Keach has been added to the cast of the movie that Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller are directing.
Keach will play the villain Wallenquist, a character “Sin City” writer Miller describes as “the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil.” Well, I guess every town needs one bad guy, especially a town named Sin City.
The always reliable Keach was last seen on the big screen in “The Bourne Legacy.” He just finished filming a role in “Nebraska,” Alexander Payne’s next movie.
The cast of the sequel to 2005′s “Sin City” also includes Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Josh Brolin, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson, Jaime King, Dennis Haysbert, Jamie Chung, Chris Meloni, Ray Liotta, Juno Temple, Jeremy Piven, Julia Garner, and Bruce Willis. Filming is under way in Austin for an October 4th release.
