Jaime King and Jamie Chung Joining 'Sin City: A Dame to Kill For'
Their names sound the same (despite being spelled differently), but Jaime King and Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch) now have something else in common. Both lovely ladies have joined the cast of Sin City: A Dame to Kill For according to a new report from THR. King is reprising her role as Wendy, twin-sister of the blonde bombshell of a prostitute Goldie from the first film. It's likely she'll be spending some screen time with Marv (Mickey Rourke) again (despite his death in Sin City, the sequel takes place before and after the first film). As for Chung, she's playing the roller-skating assassin Miho, originally played by Devon Aoki.
The two actresses join Jessica Alba and Rosario Dawson, both reprising their roles from the original 2005 adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel. As for another returning cast member, some sources are saying that Clive Owen will reprise his role as Dwight, but in the comics, the character undergoes extreme facial surgery and comes back as a completely different man. So a new actor could easily take his role. Production is underway in Austin right now, but some roles are still left to be cast. The role of Ava (a part once rumored for Angelina Jolie) is still open, and another character that has yet to be cast is one named Johnny, a smooth gambler. Stay tuned as more casting is surely on the horizon.
Too bad Devon Aoki won't be back. I hate when another actor takes over a role. I appreciate continuity, although I wouldn't mind if Alba had been replaced. She just sucks in general. I really hope Clive Owen will be back for Dwight, LOVED him in that role. Just put some prosthetics on him and get him back!

I agree, I'm not a fan of cast changes at all, in RARE occasions when the resemblance is strong enough and the performance is good enough it can work...but most of the time it's too jarring. I'm also a big fan of Clive Owen and would love to see him return. It's a shame that they'll be forced to re-cast Brittany Murphy and Michael Clarke Duncan, though.

Damn, that slipped my mind somehow. They were great in the first one, and I think it'll suffer a bit without them.

Yeah, one of the set backs of making/releasing the sequel 8.5 years after the first film, I suppose.

Why do I have a feeling that this time around it won't be as magical as the first movie? Hope I'm wrong but something tells me the sequel will be a disapointment.

... know what? I was thinking exactly the same thing. I better put my hopes in check beforehand
