Stephen Lang confirmed to play villain Khalar Singh in Conan

Last week, we reported news from Latino Review that Stephen Lang was offered the role of the evil Khalar Singh in Conan.

Today MTV news gives confirmation of the role. During a short talk with the actor at the Oscars, Lang stated that he had accepted the part of Khalar Singh.

The conversation with Lang is quite hilarious. At one point he says, "I'm going to cut the nuts off Conan and his father." Epic! He might be the only reason to see the movie, and by see I mean rent.

Check out the video below to hear the news for yourself.

Extra Tidbit: Stephen Lang auditioned for the role of Corporal Dwayne Hicks in ALIENS, but lost to James Remar, who was then replaced by Michael Biehn. Ironically, years later Lang was cast as Colonel Quaritch in AVATAR after Cameron decided against casting his original choice for the part, Michael Biehn, feeling that having Biehn in the film along with Sigourney Weaver would have made the film feel too much like ALIENS.

Excellent news!!! I hope there will be a huge fight between Rourke and him. He is a perfect choice as the vilain as he was the only charismatic character in Avatar.

I agree with Justinvsky1 that Lang vs Rourke would be awesome, but would take it a step further and pray to Crom that they fire Momoa, lose the 'father & son' plot and make Rourke Conan. That would be an epic must see.

Stephen Lang's a great actor. When I was watching Avatar I kept thinking to myself "why isn't Michael Biehn in this?" He's been so loyal to Cameron over the years and a fucking cool actor. Plus Lang & Biehn are awesome together in Tombstone!

Lang'll be a great villain, but that guy playing Conan is keeping me from looking forward to this film.
