That was fast. Yesterday Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" and Josh Brolin was said to be one of the additional actors potentially joining the cast. Now Brolin is confirmed. Dimension Films announced today that Brolin has joined the "Sin City" sequel cast as “Dwight," the character that Clive Owen played in the original film for co-directors Rodriguez and Frank Miller. Evidently there's still one more big part up for grabs. The part of the titular “Dame” has yet to be cast.

That was fast. Yesterday Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined Robert Rodriguez's "Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" and Josh Brolin was said to be one of the additional actors potentially joining the cast. Now Brolin is confirmed. Dimension Films announced today that Brolin has joined the "Sin City" sequel cast as “Dwight," the character that Clive Owen played in the original film for co-directors Rodriguez and Frank Miller. Evidently there's still one more big part up for grabs. The part of the titular “Dame” has yet to be cast.

Dwight is one of the favorite characters from Miller’s books and the 2005 film. In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR, Dwight is hunted down by the only woman he ever loved, Ava Lord, and then watches his life go straight to hell. Chronologically, this story takes place prior to “The Big Fat Kill” (featured in the film FRANK MILLER’S SIN CITY) and explains how Dwight came to have a dramatically different face.

"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," said Rodriguez and Miller.

The star-studded ensemble of "Sin City 2" includes Mickey Rourke as “Marv,” Jessica Alba as “Nancy,” Rosario Dawson as “Gail” and Jaime King as “Goldie/Wendy” with new cast members Joseph Gordon-Levitt as “Johnny,” Dennis Haysbert as “Manute” and Jamie Chung as “Miho.” "Law & Order: SVU" actor Chris Meloni also joined the cast today. Production already began before the Christmas break at Rodriguez’s Troublemaker Studios in Austin, Texas.

"Sin City: A Dame To Kill For" is due in theaters October 4, 2013
