Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, the actor best known as either Mr. Eko from Lost, Adebisi from Oz, Algrim and Kurse from Thor: The Dark World, Nykwana Wombosi from The Bourne Identity, or simply, “You know, that guy. Damn it, I wish I could remember his name,” has just booked another high-profile supporting role. The British actor has been cast in DC’s upcoming Suicide Squad movie as Killer Croc, the scaly, sewer-dwelling underworld figure whose lust for power frequently puts him at odds with Batman and other assorted Gotham City do-gooders.
Akinnuoye-Agbaje joins a large and ever-growing cast that already includes Jared Leto as The Joker, Will Smith as Deadshot, Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn, Jai Courtney as Captain Boomerang, Cara Delevingne as Enchantress, Viola Davis as Amanda Waller, and Joel Kinnaman as Rick Flagg. Leto cut his signature locks for the movie, so Akinnuoye-Agbaje is going to have to do something drastic to impress his new co-stars. He could get his tongue split like that guy who calls himself The Lizardman, maybe, although we’d be thrilled just to see him balance a tiny knit hat on the side of his inevitably giant, lizardy head.
