ERIC Roberts has joined the cast of Tom Six’s The Human Centipede 3 (Final Sequence).

The actor, whose roles include playing villains in The Dark Knight and The Expendables (pictured), joins returning villains Dieter Laser and Laurence R Harvey in the cast of the controversial horror sequel.

Six, who wrote and directed all three films in the franchise, will also appear in the film alongside Tommy Lister, Robert LaSardo and Bree Olson.

Six has described that the third instalment as the final segment, which will make its predecessors “look like a Disney movie”. But the movies have been getting progressively more graphic in terms of content – the second film was banned in the UK.

According to Entertainment Weekly, this film will feature a centipede made up of 500 people. It is currently shooting in California.

Roberts’ best known role came in Andrey Konchalovskiy’s Runaway Train, which saw him nominated for an Oscar for best supporting actor.
