Veteran actor Stacy Keach has been cast in the upcoming Sin City: A Dame to Kill For in the chief villain role of mob boss Wallenquist, aka The Kraut.
Variety revealed that Stacy Keach has signed on to the Robert Rodriguez helmed Sin City sequel A Dame to Kill For in the role of Wallenquist, aka “The Kraut”, who writer Frank Miller described as “the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil.”
Stacy Keach is the latest actor to join the cast of A Dame to Kill For, which includes Josh Brolin, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Mickey Rourke, Jeremy Piven, Ray Liotta, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jamie Chung, and Eva Green. Gordon-Levitt’s commitment to Sin City: A Dame to Kill For means that he will no longer be in the running for Marvel Studios’ Guardians of the Galaxy in the role of Peter Quill, a.k.a. Star-Lord.
