Three to 'Punish' Their Careers

September 25, 2007

Dominic West, Doug Hutchison, and Wayne Knight are set to join Punisher: War Zone, the new comic book movie that will ignore the previous Punisher movie(s) in the hopes of making the final, definitive take on a guy with a lot of guns. West will take on the role of Jigsaw, Punisher's enemy with a face torn apart and sloppily reassembled like a jigsaw puzzle, drawing an all-too-obvious parallel with the script. Hutchinson is taking on the role of Looney Bin Jim, another villain that will surely add to the story, not muck it up with too many villains ala every previous superhero franchise. Knight is playing Microchip, Punisher's armorer and confidant, despite the name's implication that he's a sidekick dog in a cartoon about getting sucked into a computer program. I feel bad for all of them.
