Frank Grillo To Play Marvel’s Crossbones?

Frank Grillo (“The Grey,” “Warrior”) posted a tweet on Monday indicating that over the weekend he at least met and probably screen tested for a role in the upcoming “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” at Marvel Studios.

“See Ya LA. It was a good trip. Marvel was a lot of fun. Be cool if it works out. #CaptainAmerica” said Grillo. The tweet comes in the wake of a radio report by Matthew Aaron (via IGN) on Saturday that claimed Grillo is “this close” to scoring the role of Crossbones in the film.

In the comics, Crossbones is a mercenary who famously carried out the assassination of Captain America himself Steve Rogers. Filming on ‘Soldier’ begins next spring in Cleveland.
