Lyriq Bent, who played Rigg in Saw III, is returning to action in Saw IV, according to Arrow in the Head. He joins Tobin Bell and Scott Patterson, who B-D announced last week exclusively.
Writer/Director Darren Lynn Bousman tells the website, "Yes Lyriq Bent is in fact returning... He is a great actor - and am very excited to be working with him yet again - on part IV. The story is much darker - more fucked up - and much more psychological! Oh yeah and there is some blood too!"
Bloody-Disgusting has also learned that Justin Louis has joined the cast of SAW IV. Louis is best known to us genre fans as Luis, Sarah Polley's husband, in the DAWN OF THE DEAD remake. He can also be seen in SHOOTER, which is now in theaters.
When B-D checked in with Bousman to confirm this scoop (which he did), he told them "I am so stoked - one reason I love this franchise is most everyone has come back on the crew. Same Costume team - same props team - same production designer - DP - AD's - basically everyone... At this point it's like one big dysfunctional family... That holds true with the cast. We have some crazy surprises in store for the fans this year. Stuff no one is expecting."
SAW IV hits theaters October 26.
