Peter Fonda, Judd Nelson join cast of Boondock Saints 2

fonda-nelson-boondock-saints-2A press release that the Geeks of Doom obtained from DCP Boondock II Productions announced that film legend Peter Fonda and former Brat Pack-er Judd Nelson have roles in Boondock Saints 2: All Saint’s Day.

Fonda will be playing The Roman, and Nelson will be playing Concezio Yakavetta, with speculation running rampant over how Nelson’s character is related to the Mafia family that died at the hands of the two Irish brothers whose vengeance spree was being investigated by Willem Dafoe. Dafoe isn’t back in the sequel, but both Norman Reedus and Sean Patrick Flanery are, and isn’t that all that matters to the fangirls and fanboys who love this cult film? Also previously announced was the addition of Julie Benz (“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”) as a female lead, which may enrage those same fangirls who write slash fanfic about the brothers.

I haven’t been watching the Boondock Saints 2 production diaries, but I will note that they’re actively engaging the fanbase with a regular segment called “Fan Questions.” Check out the latest one with Billy Connolly, who plays the brothers’ father below:

The film’s last day of shooting was December 5.
