Frank Grillo is a great actor who has had memorable roes in small screen hits such as The Shield and Prison Break. Of course, you've more than likely also seen him in films such as those mentioned above, not to mention such prominent upcoming releases as Gangster Squad and Zero Dark Forty. However, it looks like his next role will be in 2014's Captain America: The Winter Soldier! As you can see from the Tweet below, the prolific actor recently met with the studio for what sounds like a fairly prominent role in the highly anticipated sequel. There's obviously no word on who he may or may not be playing, but it's hard to imagine Grillo being anything other than a great addition to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Be sure to sound off with your thoughts and theories in the usual place!





UPDATE: According to radio host and comedian Matthew Aaron, who Tweeted the following BEFORE Grillo revealed that he'd met with Marvel Studios, the actor is set to play 'Crossbones' in the sequel (who played a pivotal role in the comic book version of the story).

Hmm, wonder what it could be. Zemo perhaps?
AlexDeLarge87 - 10/22/2012, 1:29 PM
Great actor. Nothing against seeing him in the film. I hope Kevin Durand gets the role of Crossbones thou. Considering that character is part of the movie.
toco89 - 10/22/2012, 1:29 PM
Anybody heard from Sebastian Stan? I hope he's getting into serious shape.
JerBear - 10/22/2012, 1:30 PM
Maybe he's up for the same role Josh Holloway and Nikolaj Coster Waldau are up for. He has the same type of look.
JerBear - 10/22/2012, 1:31 PM
And the character is probably Zemo, with Durand for Crossbones.
AlexDeLarge87 - 10/22/2012, 1:39 PM
If i gotta choose from those i say Coster-Waldau should be Zemo.
r0njeremy - 10/22/2012, 1:42 PM
I think he's trying for either of the winter soldier supervillans BARON ZEMO or CROSSBONES .''
DrDoom - 10/22/2012, 1:43 PM


C'mon Marvel, gimme some Zemo!
NOLANITE - 10/22/2012, 1:44 PM
"be cool if it works out"

Doesnt confirm his role.
Plus why is every damn movie covered here Highly Anticipated?
DrRockso - 10/22/2012, 1:47 PM
He's very handsome
Mucklefluga - 10/22/2012, 1:50 PM
@NOLANITE Because they all are!
jimpinto24 - 10/22/2012, 1:51 PM
Maybe Wonder Man or Baron Zemo.
TheManWithBigEars - 10/22/2012, 1:52 PM
The guy's a badass would love 2 c him in a CBM... Hell, if he bulked up I could c him as Kraven, n yes I know he's Russian, but Grillo looks a lot like a lot of drawings I've seen of the character...
GOTG - 10/22/2012, 1:53 PM
hopefully he's winter soldier
Rhinoman - 10/22/2012, 1:57 PM
I doubt they are talking contract with this guy, probably just doing the screen tests. I wouldn't be surpised if they flew i/ accepted 20 different guuys to test for Zemo assuming he can also star in the third film. Im still hoping that Coster-Waldau gets Zemo, he is fantastic in Game of Thrones
luckylu - 10/22/2012, 2:02 PM
bucky better have a damn domino mask this time!!
TheGambitFreakIsBatmanOfCBM - 10/22/2012, 2:04 PM
HAHA! First thing that popped into my mind when I saw his face was Zemo.
sciencefriction - 10/22/2012, 2:07 PM
I sincerely hope the role he is up for is Baron Zemo. I'm guessing Red Skull won't be coming back, though I feel like he should have had a small role in the movie just like the comic introduction of Winter Soldier. I wonder if Sin will be in the movie instead, in conjunction with Crossbones, or if Baron Zemo & Crossbones will be working together. Hmmm.

Epic Actor
Hawksblueyes - 10/22/2012, 2:49 PM
He certainly looks Stephen Strange-ish.
Dunejedi - 10/22/2012, 3:02 PM
Red Guardian.
Spidex3000 - 10/22/2012, 3:04 PM
Zemo could be a great asset to the Captain America franchise. If each one can have a solid villain like Loki, I'll be ok.
TheSoulEater - 10/22/2012, 3:09 PM
Crossbones?
gambgel - 10/22/2012, 3:14 PM
mmm, yeah, he has a Dr Strange vibe.... interesting!
BmanHall - 10/22/2012, 3:28 PM
He looks familiar but I can't recall anything I've seen him in. He does have the size to play Crossbones.
superotherside - 10/22/2012, 3:34 PM
Crossbones! Awesome. I have no idea who he is but it is interesting that Marvel wants Crossbones in the sequel!
Optimus83 - 10/22/2012, 3:39 PM
Cool Crossbones in Winter Soldier
BruceLeroy - 10/22/2012, 3:44 PM
Crossbones!!!
jimpinto24 - 10/22/2012, 3:47 PM
Crossbones as history with Steve Rogers! It was Crossbones who gun down Cap in front of the court house. Go for it Marvel!
dracula - 10/22/2012, 3:48 PM
now someone get baron zemo
JordanKing - 10/22/2012, 3:48 PM
Bring it on. Was great in Prison Break, miss that show :(
sexfoodcomics - 10/22/2012, 3:53 PM
Better be Zemo. Cross bones has to be some big mutha. Like vin deseil. Actually that would be awesome if Vin Deiseil played crossbones
MrZoolittle - 10/22/2012, 3:53 PM
crossbones is cool.
marvel72 - 10/22/2012, 3:55 PM
crossbones plays a pretty big role in this,i hope they cast sin as well.
ThePowerCosmic - 10/22/2012, 3:57 PM
He looks like Crossbones. Better have the Damn mask on...not the Deadpool X-men origins treatment.
sciencefriction - 10/22/2012, 3:59 PM
I have faith in Marvel, that the only "villains" won't be Crossbones and Winter Soldier. Baron Zemo better be in this film! Still, not sure I can see this guy playing Crossbones, this will be interesting.
JustDame - 10/22/2012, 4:14 PM
Cool beans...I hope crossbones is written as the heartless, dangerous, merciless, relentless, badass killer that he is.
JerBear - 10/22/2012, 4:16 PM
He called us badass <3
luckylu - 10/22/2012, 4:29 PM
badass, crossbones is cool as hell and also he better wear his damn mask as well
luckylu - 10/22/2012, 4:30 PM
