The cast list for Sin City: A Dame to Kill has certainly been expanding over the past couple days. Yesterday, Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined the cast in a lead role and today brings the addition of two more actors to Robert Rodriguez's sequel.
Christopher Meloni, perhaps best known for his run on Law and Order: SVU, has signed for a lead role of a cop. Joining Meloni will be Josh Brolin whose named popped up with the JGL announcement yesterday. Brolin will play Dwight, the character played by Clive Owen in the first Sin City. For those wondering why they didn't just bring back Owen, Dwight undergoes some facial reconstruction in the sequel.
Following the casting of Mark Wahlberg in Transformers 4, Michael Bay has been pretty quiet about any cast additions to the movie. While we still await an announcement on whom the eye candy lead actress will be, Bay took to his site to announce his lead actor, Jack Reynor.
Reynor's most prominent work to date is the Irish drama What Richard Did.
Bay released the following statement about his latest casting addition:
"I just hired a great new actor for Transformers 4 to star against Mark Wahlberg. Jack Reynor, he is an Irish kid that came to America with 30 bucks in his pocket. Pretty ballsy. Seriously who does that? Anyway I spotted him in a great little Irish movie WHAT RICHARD DID. This kid is the real deal."
Transformers 4 arrives in theaters June 27, 2014 and will begin production this spring.
Just under four months from arriving in theaters, Iron Man 3 is set to finish filming this month in Beijing. A report from the Hindustan Times [via CBM] reports that director Shane Black and some Marvel scouts will be visiting India in a couple weeks to scout locations for The Avengers 2. The site reports that "three scenes in the sequel to the Marvel Studios film may be shot in the country."
No additional information is given as to what context the scenes will contain, but we have a couple years until The Avengers re-assemble in 2015.

Sin City 2, Transformers 4, The Avengers 2
I usually love Chris Meloni, but he was so underwhelming on this past season of True Blood that my expectations aren't as high as they would normally be. Still, these two plus JGL means the cast is coming together nicely. Now I just am wondering who the heck is playing Ava Lord!
Maybe they are filming it in India because Bruce Banner hided out there in the first one so maybe he returned there after the events of The Avengers
India would be so beautiful to film by the way I'm back
What movie were you watching?
Mr. Blandings builds his dream house starring Cary Grant I'm watching the Hunger Games tomorrow
Okay and when are you going to see Parental Guidance?
Okay and I'm seeing Lincoln on Friday night
Good luck and matt what do you think of the new Transformers casting
I suppose he's a good pick but I wish they chose someone that's more well known but I guess Micheal Bay trusts him
I believe so too matt and with the new direction with the franchise i bet it's something not perfect but foolproof
Meaning will not possibly fail
The movie will still make a lot of dough no matter what
Yeah just like their last three efforts
"Welcome to the party, pal."
"I am serious... and don't call me Shirley."
"When am I gonna learn how to punch?"
"These go to eleven."
"Benjamin, have you ever been severely beaten about the face & neck?"
"Just keep swimming, swimming, swimming."
"You're gonna need a bigger boat."
"Jessica's got cable."
