Last week, we reported that The Grey star Frank Grillo is in the mix to play Crossbones in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. Today, we have confirmation that he has landed the role.

The villain debuted in the Marvel comic books in 1989 as Brock Rumlow, the leader of the Savage Crims gang in New York. He later went on to serve as a henchman of Red Skull under the code name Crossbones. The actor joins Chris Evans and Samuel L. Jackson, who return as Steve Rogers and Nick Fury, along with Anthony Mackie as Falcon.

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo are directing from a screenplay by Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely. Production will likely begin after shooting wraps on Marvel Studios' Thor: The Dark World.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier was released April 4th, 2014 and stars Chris Evans, Samuel L. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Robert Redford, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo. The film is directed by Anthony Russo, Joe Russo, Joss Whedon.

    Cool! I'm pretty excited for this, as the first one was surprisingly fantastic. Frank Grillo kind of looks like Jim Caviezel, eh?

    I've seen him in a few films, he's a much better actor than some of them.
    I've always thought that a rough and ragged 21 year old would be better as Ghost Rider. Now that needs to be rebooted.
