With production scheduled to start up next month in Toronto on Suicide Squad, eTalk CTV and The Toronto Sun are reporting that actors Scott Eastwood and Ray Olubowale have joined the cast. No details were given in regards to what characters they may be playing, but there are rumors that Ray Olubowale is playing King Shark, but that has not been confirmed. Hopefully we'll get confirmation about who they are playing as we get closer to production starting up.
The actors join a growing cast that includes Will Smith (Deadshot), Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn), Jared Leto (The Joker), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), Joel Kinnaman (Rick Flagg), Cara Delevingne (Enchantress) and Viola Davis (Amanda Waller). No story details have been confirmed at this time, but hopefully we'll get an official synopsis when production begins on director David Ayer's comic book adaptation. Scott Eastwood last starred in David Ayer's Fury, and he will next be seen in The Longest Ride and Snowden. Ray Olubowale, a former Canadian boxing champion, has starred in Resident Evil: Afterlife and Resident Evil: Retribution.
In related news, Entertainment Tonight recently spoke with Viola Davis, who was asked which of her characters is more of a badass, Amanda Waller or How to Get Away with Murder's Annalise Keating. Here's what she had to say below.
"You know what that's a tough one, but I would give it to Amanda Waller. I've been doing my research on Amanda Waller and I'm a little scared because she's really unapologetic. I mean seriously, it's beyond 'she don't play'. She's on the right side of the law, but really she should probably be at Rikers Island - that's just my opinion, Amanda!"
