Oh man, you guys!
After seven years of anticipation, we FINALLY know what Clive Owen's character in Sin City looked like before he had facial reconstruction surgery!
Here's a hint: it's A LOT like Josh Brolin!
That's right, fresh on the heels of the news that Joseph Gordon Levitt dropped out of The Guardians of the Galaxy casting race to secure himself a role in the long-awaited sequel to 2005 noir smash, A Dame To Kill For, the Gangster Squad star - who recently got himself into a little trouble with the law for public intoxication - has also joined the cast of the Robert Rodriguez adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel series as a younger version of Dwight!
For those of you unfamiliar with the first film, the character mentioned in the original film that he had recently gone under the knife to disguise himself from authorities, and as the vignettes that comprise these films tend to be non-linear and out of order, it makes sense that both actors will get to appear in the same role in the same movie!
As Rodriguez and Miller said in a statement:
"Dwight is a constant character throughout the Sin City world and A Dame to Kill For is a defining episode in his life. We're looking forward to Josh's take on Dwight."
GAH! So exciting!
Between this and the JGL news, Christopher Meloni's recent casting as a cop, and the secured returns of Jessica Alba, Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke and Rosario Dawson, we think it's safe to say that production is getting ready to move FULL-STEAM ahead…and we couldn't be more effing excited!
Especially since it means that we'll soon know who will be taking on the role originally written for Angelina Jolie way back when development was first beginning!
What do U think?? Any suggestions on who the lucky actress may be?!
