Christopher Meloni, best known as Law And Order: SVU‘s resident badass: Detective Elliot Stabler, is adding Sin City: A Dame To Kill to his comic book flick resume.
According to the report via according to Deadline, Meloni will be doing what he does best in SC2 and playing a cop, but in a central role, not just “Random Police Officer #1”.
Meloni’s years portraying the morally absolutist, but ethically questionable Stabler should serve him well as a resident of Frank Miller‘s dark and violent, yet incredibly stylized world. We look forward to seeing him kicking ass first and asking questions later come October.
Meanwhile, fellow cast member and genre film juggernaut Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) had this to say about the Sin City aesthetic and Director Robert Rodriguez:
“I love how the first movie uses VFX, not to make fake things look real, but to create a heightened world unburdened by the look and feel of reality. Plus, nobody makes a badass like Mr. Rodriguez.”
With the likes of Meloni and Gordon-Levitt joining returning cast members Mickey Rourke, Clive Owen, Jessica Alba, and Rosario Dawson, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For looks like it could be this year’s nerd movie sleeper hit.
