King Einon himself, David Thewlis, is the latest addition to the ever expanding cast of RED 2. He joins the returnees Bruce Willis, Helen Mirren, and John Malkovich as well as newcomers Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lee Byung-Hun, Neal McDonough, and Anthony Hopkins. Thewlis will play The Frog, a dealer in information. Don’t worry my politically correct friends, he’s not playing a Frenchie, he got his nickname from poisoning the water in the Kremlin using an Amazonian frog. Bad David Thewlis! The plot of Red 2 will see Willis and chums go up against Hopkins’ “genius scientist who was locked up in an insane asylum.” Now where have I seen that role before?
RED 2 is scheduled for release 2nd August 2013.
