Actor will take the role of Marvel villain Crossbones.

Variety has confirmed that ‘The Gry’ star Frank Grillo has scored the role of the villainous Crossbones in Marvel and Disney’s ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier.’

Created by writer Mark Gruenwald and artist Kieron Dwyer, the character first appeared in the Marvel universe back in 1989 as Brock Rumlow, a leader of the Savage Crims gang in New York’s lower East Side. Rumlow later became a henchman of the Red Skull under the code name Crossbones.

Penned by Stephen McFeely with Joe and Anthony Russo in the director’s chair, ‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ sees Chris Evans returning as the star-spangled hero, with Anthony Mackie and Scarlett Johansson attached for supporting roles along with Cobie Smulders who will return to reprise her role as S.H.I.E.L.D agent Maria Hill.
