David Thewlis is joining the cast of Red 2, which already includes Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich.
Thewlis is well known to Harry Potter fans, as he played Professor Remus Lupin – a lycan with a heart of mush.
In Red 2 he’ll play a character called The Frog.
THR describes him:
“An information dealer who got his name by poisoning the water supply at the Kremlin using a poisonous Amazonian frog.”
Thewlis won’t be the only fresh-faced actor to come aboard the sequel. Anthony Hopkins and Catherine Zeta-Jones are joining, too.
Red 2 has a release date of August 2, 2013.
