Jeffrey Dean Morgan Joins Dwayne Johnson in RAMPAGE
The Walking Dead star Jeffrey Dean Morgan is the latest cast member to jump on board Dwayne Johnson's feature film adaptation of the classic video game Rampage.
Morgan is said to play a character named Agent Russell, "who works for a covert government division called OGA and rolls with serious swagger and attitude." This seems like a character he can have fun with. Morgan is oozing with swagger and attitude. He'll obviously be leaving his barbed wire-encrusted-baseball bat behind for this movie, but I'd seriously love to see him use it to beat the hell out of the giant monsters that the movie will center around!
Brad Peyton (San Andreas) is directing the film, which will center on three people who are transformed into giant monsters that include a gorilla, a wolf, and a Godzilla-like lizard. Together they will wreak havoc on North American cities and landmarks. Only one man can stop them, and that man is an animal-loving hero played by Johnson.
Dean Morgan joins the previously announced cast that includes Malin Akerman, Naomie Harris, Joe Manganiello, Marley Shelton, Jake Lacy, P.J. Byrne, Jack Quaid, Matt Gerald, and Breanne Hill.
