The updates continue to come in for Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer. After it was announced that actor Andre Braugher had landed himself a role in the upcoming sequel fans had begun to speculate on who he could possibly be playing. The Puppet Master? Come on, it has got to be something a littler more, uhh, generic.
Andre Braugher for FF: Rise of the Silver Surfer
I have been a huge fan of Andre Braugher ever since his first role in Glory. The actor has more than a few great pop-ins and I can't wait to see how he shines in this next installment in the Fantastic Four franchise. But how will he shine if we don't know his role?
Fortunately for us, the good people over at BlackFilm have recently discovered what exact role Braugher would be playing.
On the heels of Variety briefly reporting that Andre Braugher has left an episodic role on NBC's ER for a role in the Fox sequel, Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer, many fans were wondering which role he would play. Would it the The Puppet Master or The Silver Surfer? Yes, the latter is a bit of a stretch. Blackfilm.com has learned that Braugher will play the role of the military general in the sequel. Filming is scheduled to start on August 31, 2006.
