'Sin City 2': First Look at Josh Brolin as Dwight McCarthy

Sin City 2 A Dame to Kill For Dwight (Clive Owen)

Clive Owen (pictured above) brought Dwight "I'm out of my mind" McCarthy to life in directors Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller's Sin City, but those familiar with the source material understand why Josh Brolin is taking over the role in the followup, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (which takes place before, during and after events in the first movie).

Rodriguez' current workload - editing Machete Kills and starting production on Sin City 2 - is keeping him busy, but he's paused to provide his Twitter followers a first look at Brolin as the Dwight character on-set. The filmmaker also unveiled a photo offering a reasonable approximation of how the finished product will look.

Below, you get a taste of the challenging acting experience on a Sin City movie (as seen from the sidelines, it's kind of hilarious), where cast members brood, grimace and draw inspiration from simple props and backdrops awaiting construction during post-production. Not to mention, having to play make-believe opposite absent cast members who end up being inserted into the scene at a later time (through the "magic" of editing).
