The sad passing of Michael Clarke Duncan in September left a sizable whole in Hollywood, and an equally sizable hole in the cast of the upcoming sequel, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. Duncan was scheduled to return to the role of mob enforcer Manute in the Robert Rodriguez-directed sequel, but with his untimely death someone was going to have to step into the part, and the filmmakers seemed to have found their someone.
The someone in question is Dennis Haysbert, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Haysbert is famous for his TV roles as 24‘s President Palmer,The Unit’sSgt. Maj. Blane and All State Insurance’s spokesperson. As you may or may not know, with his a deep, gravely voice and standing at an imposing height of six-feet, four inches, Haysbert makes for a sadly ideal Ducan substitute for the film and the part.
Duncan died in September from complications after suffering a heart attack this summer. Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, the sequel to the 2005 hit Sin City, is currently in production for an October 2013 release.
