Frank Grillo Joins Cast of ‘Captain America’ Sequel

It looks like the sequel to last year’s Captain America: The First Avenger will be taking more than its subtitle from Ed Brubaker’s just-completed eight-year run with the character. Actor Frank Grillo has joined the cast of 2014’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier, signing on to play the man who killed Steve Rogers.Variety has the news that Grillo – whom you might recognize from roles in The Grey and End of Watch – will take on the role of Crossbones, the thuggish super villain created by Mark Gruenwald and Kieron Dwyer in the 1980s who most commonly appears alongside a Red Skull or two – He also served with the Thunderbolts for a short while at the start of Jeff Parker’s run on the title – and fired the shot that apparently killed America’s Favorite Super Soldier in the successful “Death of Captain America” storyline.

Grillo joins Chris Evans and Sebastian Shaw in the movie, both of whom are returning from the first movie alongside The Avengers‘ Samuel L. Jackson, Cobie Smulders and Scarlett Johansson and newcomer Anthony Mackie, who’ll be playing Sam Wilson, AKA The Falcon. Hmm… Cap, Bucky, Nick Fury, Black Widow, the Falcon and Maria Hill. It really does sound like the core cast of Brubaker’s run, doesn’t it…?

The Winter Soldier is being directed by Community producers Anthony and Joe Russo from a script by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely, and is scheduled for release in April 2014.
