Stacy Keach Joins ‘Sin City’ Sequel As Wallenquist

You can add yet another big name to the ever-growing cast of “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” today: Stacy Keach is officially on board.

The veteran actor, who will be seen later this year in “The Descendants” director Alexander Payne’s “Nebraska,” has joined the “Sin City” sequel as mob boss Herr Wallenquist, one of the most mysterious bad guys in the “Sin City” universe. He’s described by “Sin City” creator and co-director Frank Miller as “the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil.”

In the comics, Wallenquist himself is rarely seen, appearing only briefly in two of the comics: the titular “Dame to Kill For” and “Hell and Back.” In both appearances, he’s around for little more than a handful of panels and pages. One imagines he’ll have more to do in the upcoming film; perhaps he’ll have a part to play in the Joseph Gordon-Levitt segment?
