Stacy Keach Will Be “Pure Evil” In ‘Sin City: A Dame To Kill For’

Stacy Keach Will Be "Pure Evil" In 'Sin City: A Dame To Kill For'

It’s taken over seven years but “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is finally arriving this year and just as the first installment brought back aging character actors like Rutger Hauer and Powers Boothe for small roles, the sequel is bringing in another tough guy actor.

Variety is reporting that Stacy Keach has joined the “Sin City” sequel as mob boss Wallenquist, who co-director Frank Miller says is “the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City. He is pure evil.” For a world that includes a yellow-skinned murderous pedophile, that’s saying a lot. Keach’s iconic face was last seen last summer in “The Bourne Legacy” and he had an uncredited cameo in the full length version of “Machete,” so he knows this territory pretty well.

Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Rosario Dawson are all returning for the Robert Rodriguez and Miller co-directed sequel with brand new cast members that include Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Eva Green, among others. “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” arrives in theatres this fall on October 4th.
