If you thought that “Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” already had a star-studded cast, then you haven’t seen nothing yet. Robert Rodriguez has cast two new actresses to the film, and finally has someone to portray its titular dame.

Dimension Films announced that Eva Green has joined the movie as Ava Lord, the dame to kill for from the “Sin City” sequel/prequel’s title. She’s described as “every man’s most glorious dreams come true, she’s also every man’s darkest nightmares,” which pretty much sums up the former Bond girl. At one point Rodriguez had wanted Angelina Jolie for the role, but he seems perfectly happy with the woman he ended up with.

“We’ve been wanting to tell this story for a very long time. Ava Lord is one of the most deadly and fascinating residents of Sin City,” Rodriguez and Frank Miller said in a statement. “From the start, we knew that the actor would need to be able to embody the multifaceted characteristics of this femme fatale and we found that in Eva Green. We are ecstatic that Eva is joining us.”

Also joining the cast (via Coming Soon) is Julia Garner, who plays a stripper named Marcy in the new “Sin City” story “The Long Bad Night.” She’ll reportedly be playing largely off of Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character Johnny.

We weren’t kidding when we said this movie has a star-studded cast. Thus far it features Mickey Rourke as Marv, Jessica Alba as Nancy, Bruce Willis as Hartigan, Jaime King as Wendy/Goldie, Rosario Dawson as Gail, Josh Brolin as Dwight, JGL as Johnny, Christopher Meloni as Mort, Jeremy Piven as Bob, Ray Liotta as Joey, Dennis Hasbert as Manute, Juno Temple as Sally and Jamie Chung as Migo.

“Sin City: A Dame to Kill For” is due out on October 4.

Democrats, Republicans and Millennials agree: 2017 is shaping up to be a spectacle — a spectacle that really kicks into high gear this Friday with the presidential inauguration. Not only will the new POTUS swear in, but all the Country’s highest offices will be filled. It’s a daunting prospect, and to feel a little anxious about it is only normal. But if your anxiety is snowballing into panic, we have a solution:
Bill Murray.

He’s the human embodiment of a mental “Happy Place”, and there’s really no problem he can’t solve. So, with that in mind, how about we all set aside reality for a moment and let Bill take the pain away by imagining a top-shelf White House cabinet filled exclusively by his signature characters. Here are a few hypothetical appointments for your consideration…

Secretary of Defense:
Bill Murray from Stripes

His incompetence is balanced by charm, and dumb luck is inexplicably on his side. America could do worse.

Secretary of State:
Bill Murray from Lost In Translation

A seasoned globetrotter steeped in regional traditions who has the respect of the whole wide world. And he kills Costello in karaoke, which is very important.

Press Secretary:
Bill Murray from Ghostbusters

“Cats and dogs, living together. Mass hysteria.” Dude knows how to brief a room.

Secretary of Health and Human Services:
Bill Murray from What About Bob.

A doctor-approved people person who knows that progress is measured in baby steps.

Secretary of Energy:
Bill Murray from Groundhog Day

Let’s be honest, this world is going to need a lot of do-overs.

Feeling better? Hold on to that bliss. And enjoy a healthy alternative to the inauguration brouhaha with multiple Murrays all Friday long in an IFC movie marathon including Kingpin, Zombieland, Ghostbusters, and Ghostbusters II.

Unless you’ve somehow missed every episode of the Simpsons since 1989, then surely you know that Hank Azaria is one of the most important character actors of our time. He’s so prolific and his voice is so dynamic that he’s responsible for more iconic personalities than most folks realize. Basically, he’s the great and powerful Oz — except that when you pull back the curtain the truth is actually more impressive. And now Hank is coming to IFC to bring yet another character to the TV pop culture hive mind in the new series Brockmire. Check out the trailer below.

Based on the following Funny or Die short and co-starring Amanda Peet, Brockmire follows the story of imploded major league sportscaster Jim Brockmire as he tries to resurrect his career by calling plays for a floundering minor league team in a podunk town.

The series is written by Joel Church-Cooper (Undateable) and produced by Funny or Die’s Mike Farah and Joe Farrell, meaning that there’s funny in front of the camera, funny behind the camera–funny all around. Sounds like a ball to us.

Brockmire premieres April 5 at 10P on IFC.
