The cast of the upcoming sequel Bill & Ted Face the Music keeps getting better. Following the recent news that the roles of Bill and Ted’s daughters had been filled, it has now been reported that Barry star Anthony Carrigan is joining the movie as the movie’s main villain.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carrigan will play the “relentless adversary” to the movie’s now middle-aged metal-loving friends. Carrigan is best known for his role as affable Chechen gangster NoHo Hank in the HBO hit Barry, as well as playing Zsasz in the DC show Gotham.
Bill & Ted Face the Music reunites Keanu Reeves and Alex Winter in the roles they played in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989) and Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey (1991). The cast also includes Samara Weaving and Brigette Lundy-Paine as Bill and Ted’s daughters Billie and Thea, plus William Sadler, who will reprise his Bogus Journey role as the Grim Reaper.
After years of rumors that Winter and Reeves might return for a third movie, in March the pair confirmed Bill & Ted Face the Music was finally happening. They recorded a short video thanking the fans for their dedication to the series and announcing that the movie would start shooting this summer. The film hits theaters on August 21 2020, and is directed by Galaxy Quest’s Dean Parisot.
As for what the plot of the film will be, it was revealed by co-writer Solomon in January 2018 that the story finds Bill and Ted in the modern day, as family men that go back in time to revisit their younger selves, using footage from the original film.
