He will join already announced cast members Jeff Bridges, Olivia Wilde and Beau Garrett.
It seems likely he will renew his role as the title character. With all this news of actors from the first film being in the sequel as well as the name it looks like they're really aiming to make this film true to the original.
I'm glad of this; I was afraid they would package it for today's audiences all the while practically forgetting about the first one.
What do you think of this news? Happy to see yet another cast member return for the sequel?
