After the passing of the great Michael Clarke Duncan, fans began to wonder who who replace him in the upcoming sequel to Sin City. THR has revealed that Dennis Haysbert, who you may best remember as President David Palmer from 24 or Pedro Cerrano from Major League, will be filling the role of Manute in the film. In Frank Miller’s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, the comic that the film is based on, Manute is pivotal character.
Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller provided 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.”
