Dennis Haysbert Discusses His Role As 'Manute' In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

Dennis Haysbert, who will replace the late Michael Clark Duncan in Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez's Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, talks here about preparing for the role and how much Duncan's performance will play on his take on 'Manute'.

"I haven't finished working out to the capacity that I need to, but he's going to be different," Dennis Haysbert told SuperheroHype when asked about about shaving his head and bulking up for the role of 'Manute' in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For. "This is playing as a prequel, so it should work out." The actor, who is perhaps best known for playing 'President David Palmer' in 24, is of course taking over from the late Michael Clark Duncan. As for exactly how much of an impact that will have on his performance, Haysbert said: "It's going to be my character but I've spoken extensively with Frank Miller and Robert (Rodriguez) about what they want with the character and yes, it has to have some feel of what Michael did but I have to make it my own." Written and directed by Rodriguez and Miller, the actor also had this to say about what it has so far been like to work with the duo. "Robert sets up the camera and he does a lot of the hands-on directing but Frank is very astute and very good at watching from a distance and just coming in and popping in a few things in your ear that really solidifies it. Because he comes from that comic book approach and everything is storyboarded so you have a clear idea as to what you want to do and what he wants. It's a very cool process." Sin City: A Dame to Kill For is currently scheduled to be released on October 4, 2013. Be sure to stay tuned to CBM for further updates!

It's more of a midquel, actually. That's midquel, Dennis. Mid-quel.

@TankD Tarantino was involved in very little of the production, directing only the scene where Dwight and Rafferty are in the car. To say he was responsible for the overall feel of the film is a vast overstatement.

He is my pick for Lucious Fox when The Batman franchise is rebooted he will follow in the footsteps of the legendary Morgan Freeman & he can do it!

TankD@ Seriously, it has been blatently obvious since Tarantnio came on the scene that his style was hugely influenced by Frank Miller. The two d admittedly also share the same pulp and movie influences. But I've been saying, since Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and True Romance that Tarantino is like the cinema version of Frank Miller. So I think the "ambience and overall tone of the film"wasreally due to Miller and the Sin City books the film was based on.
