"Rowdy" Roddy Piper Reported Dead at 61
Arnold Schwarzenegger is out of office and done dealing with his personal troubles, at least to the point that he’s now able to take on work again. Next up is The Last Stand, a Western in which he’ll play the sheriff of a town being threatened by the leader of a drug cartel. That’s been the only casting so far, but it looks like one of the movie’s key villain roles is sealing up now.
Variety reports that Peter Stormare is in negotiations to take on Ahnuld, as a “seasoned war veteran” and top henchman for the Big Bad, as he is charged with leading an eight-man posse to take the Gubernator down. Stormare is awesome, and you’ve almost certainly seen him acting all menacing and quiet in any number of classics, perhaps most memorably the Coens’ Fargo and The Big Lebowski.
