BLADE RUNNER 2 Cast Adds Actors From THE DARK KNIGHT And MUNICH

Everyone is in this movie.

According to a new report at Variety, the cast of Blade Runner 2 just gained two new actors: David Dastmalchian and Hiam Abbass.

They join the already-cast Harrison Ford, Ryan Gosling, Robin Wright, Ana de Armas, Sylvia Hoeks, Carla Juri, Mackenzie Davis, Barkhad Abdi and - last but certainly not least - Guardians Of The Galaxy's Dave Bautista. 

If you're wondering who David Dastmalchian and Hiam Abbass are, well, I've got some photos for you. Dastmalchian recently appeared in Marvel's Ant-Man, but is perhaps best known for his work as "Unsettlingly Greasy Joker Henchman #3" in The Dark Knight. Remember this guy?

As for Hiam Abbass: she's an Israeli actress who had a bit part in Steven Spielberg's Munich. That's her on the far right in the photo below.

Hm. That's not a very good photo. Let's try another one. Here's Hiam Abbass in 2004's A Syrian Bride.

Much better!

We still know next to nothing about Denis Villeneuve's Blade Runner 2. We're not even sure it's called Blade Runner 2. All we know is that the film takes place several decades after the events of 1982's Blade Runner, that Harrison Ford's reprising his role as Rick Deckard, and that a whole bunch of people are in it. Seriously, look at that cast. That's not even everyone that'll be in the movie, and the cast is already threatening to eclipse the sprawling lineup of performers being assembled by Spider-Man: Homecoming.

Blade Runner 2 opens next October. Everyone (perhaps even Evan's dad!) will be in it.
