Thesp Laz Alonso (“Miracle at St. Anna”) has been added to the cast of the “Straw Dogs” remake alongside James Marsden, Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard.

In the film, Alonso will play Deputy John Burke, an Iraq war veteran who doesn’t see eye to eye with the town’s vigilantes. He can be seen next in “Avatar” this December.
