Character actor Frank Grillo just booked the biggest gig of his life.
The TV and film player is set to get his bad on as Crossbones in the forthcoming Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
In the Marvelverse, Crossbones was a henchman for Red Skull (the villain in the original blockbuster starring Chris Evans). His presence in the sequel is making people excited because it seems to indicate that the powers that be may be playing with the idea of incorporating elements from the – Spoiler Alert! – Fallen Son: The Death of Captain American limited series comic book.
Grillo joins a cast that includes Sebastian Stan, Scarlett Johansson, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, and Samuel L. Jackson.
