Dennis Haysbert Replaces Michael Clarke Duncan In SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR

When the late great Michael Clarke Duncan ("Daredevil") passed away earlier this year many wondered who might replace him in the sequel to 2005's Sin City. Well the answer has arrived, director Robert Rodriguez has chosen Dennis Haysbert to fill the role of Manute.



According to the Hollywood Reporter we are in good hands when it comes to the actor that is replacing Michael Clarke Duncan in Sin City 2. That would be Allstate Insurance spokesman, Dennis Haysbert, or as many would remember, President David Palmer, on the Fox television series 24. As for me I still like to think of him as Pedro "fuck you Jobu" Cerrano in 1989's baseball comedy, Major League.

Haysbert steps into the role of Manute, who in Frank Miller's comic, Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, which the movie is titled after, is a pivotal character. He is a henchman that works for Ava Lord and her husband. He usually is portrayed wearing a valet uniforma, being of great size, yet is unusually polite as commits terrible, unspeakable acts upon his victims.

Rodriguez and Miller have provided the Hollywood Reporter with an official statement:
"Manute is a character that has been part of the heart of the Sin City tales and the late Michael Clarke Duncan beautifully established that role on screen. We could not tell the story of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For without Manute and are thrilled to welcome Dennis Haysbert to the cast."






SIN CITY: A DAME TO KILL FOR was developed by Frank Miller based upon his graphic novel, with a screenplay by Frank Miller and Academy Award winner William Monahan (The Departed). Rosario Dawson and Jessica Alba are already confirmed to return. The film will open nationwide on October 4, 2013.
