    this dude is too good of an actor not to be cast more regularly or in better roles. he was brilliant in The Tudors and August Rush (and the better part of the crappy "From Paris with Love"). he is a classic example of bad roles happening to good actors (unfortunately by his choice). this movie doesn't sound very promising either. here's hoping this turns around soon.
