Melissa Leo (“The Fighter”) and Rick Yune (“Die Another Day”) are the two latest two SAG-card carrying thesps to join the cast of the very unthespy popcorn flick “Olympus Has Fallen”, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

The Roland Emmerich-directed “Die Hard” riff stars Gerard Butler as a disgraced secret service agent who flies in – well, not like that – to rescue the president, his family, and employees when the White House is taken hostage by a group of North Korean terrorists.

Leo will play the secretary of defense, who cracks when tortured; Yune, next in “The Man with the Iron Fists”, is playing the villain, Kang.

You can read my take on the “Olympus Has Fallen” script here, in which I speak quite heavily – and favorably – of the villain’s depiction and so on.
