Part Two Adds Character Actor Extraordinaire Tim Blake Nelson

If you’re an in-demand actor and you aren’t in a “Knives Out” movie, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, or “Barbie,” well, then you’ve most likely already been cast in “Dune: Part Two” and you simply don’t know it yet.

With the addition of Tim Blake Nelson, the mind-bogglingly stacked cast of Denis Villeneuve’s sequel swells to even greater heights. The film will already see the return of Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, Rebecca Ferguson, Javier Bardem, Dave Bautista, Stellan Skarsgård, Charlotte Rampling, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Josh Brolin, and many more vying for precious amounts of screen time. So what does that leave for Nelson in terms of sizable roles that are worthy of someone of his stature and skills? Well, one possibility could be Count Hasimir Fenring, Lady Margot’s conniving and over-ambitious husband who takes on a much larger role in the book and presumably stands do so in the sequel as well.

Although it appears we’ll have to bide our time until a later date to find out exactly who Nelson will be playing, perhaps with the debut of the first footage from the sequel, at least fans won’t have to wait quite as long as before. As reported previously, the release date for the film has been moved forward by two weeks to November 3, 2023. Until then, keep a close eye on /Film for any updates on the production as they come in.
