Sin City Gets A Shot Of Pure Evil In The Form Of Stacy Keach

The man who was Mike Hammer has been cast as Wallenquist, the most evil man in Sin City.

According to Variety, Stacy Keach will be playing the role in A Dame To Kill For. They quote Frank Miller‘s description of Keach as:

the one man who can’t be redeemed in Sin City.

In the comics he’s German-American, despite the neither German or American name, and nicknamed The Kraut. For all of the black and white, Sin City often dabbled with moral complexity, and Wallenquist is a part of this – even while it wasn’t a part of him.

I’ll be curious to see how big a role he has in the film. It could be easy to trim it to a single scene, even.
