Demi Lovato praised Beyoncé, Kim Kardashian, Sofia Vergara, Jennifer Lopez and Scarlett Johansson for have "amazing figures" and changing how we perceive beauty.
Demi Lovato has credited Beyoncé and the Kardashians with revolutionising how we perceive beauty. The 22-year-old singer recently posted an image on Instagram showing how her figure has changed over the years and how she's now happy to embrace her curves.
Demi Lovato: "Curves are beautiful".
Sofia Vergara has brushed off criticism about a "sexist" and "offensive" stunt at the Primetime Emmy Awards on Monday (25th August). She was filmed standing on a podium which has led many to claim she was promoting the objectification of women. However, Vergara believes her pedestal appearance was quite the opposite.
Nothing ever seems to get Sofia Vergara down, and really why would it? She decided her boyfriend was "too hot" to escort her to the Primetime Emmy Awards; Modern Family in which she stars received yet another Emmy for Outstanding Comedy Series; and she appears to have had an incredible time at the after parties. So when a number of commentators claimed her stunt at the Emmys was "sexist" and "offensive", Vergara brushed the criticism off with her usual confidence.
Sofia Vergara's stunt at the Primetime Emmy Awards has been called "sexist" by some commentators.

The 42 year-old actress spoke candidly about dating the 'True Blood' hunk.
Only a month after Sofia Vergara split from ex-fiancé Nick Loeb, it was reported that she was already in another relationship with actor Joe Manganiello, and as the pair have been cited many times together in public, it seems Hollywood has found its hottest new couple.
Vergara finally broke her silence on dating Manganiello
Although Manganiello and Vergara have been dating for the past couple of months, they haven't publically addressed their relationship until now. Vergara spoke candidly of her new man in a recent interview with Extra, and spoke about being a big fan of his.
Is Sofia Vergara dating Joe Manganiello? Although it's not official the pair has been spotted on two separate occasions cuddling up. Most recently the possible couple were spotted on Vergara's 42nd birthday which she celebrated in Malibu, California on Thursday (10th July).
Sofia Vergara has certainly moved on since breaking her engagement with Nick Loeb in May. The Modern Family actress was recently spotted cuddling up to True Blood star Joe Manganiello on Thursday (10th July) whilst celebrating her 42nd birthday at a California restaurant.
Sofia Vergara and Joe Manganiello have been spotted together twice looking pretty cosy.
Like comfort food, this movie has very little nutritional value, but it sure goes down smoothly. This is one of those shamelessly delicious-looking films that makes our mouths water at the tasty dishes that are lovingly created on-camera. And it also has an array of deeply likeable characters, witty cameos and sparkling dialogue to keep us smiling. So who cares that nothing unexpected happens from start to finish? This is a movie we sit back and enjoy without worrying about the appearance of a plot twist.
The title character is Carl (played by writer-director Jon Favreau), the chef at a top Los Angeles restaurant that is stuck in a rut because the owner (Dustin Hoffman) refuses to change anything on the menu. When a snooty food critic (Oliver Platt) criticises Carl for his tired and predictable cuisine, Carl's reaction sparks an angry Twitter war. In a fit of anger, Carl quits his job then hatches a plan to get back to his roots while bonding with Percy (Emjay Anthony), his pre-teen son with spicy ex-wife Inez (Sofia Vergara). So Carl and his sidekick Martin (John Leguizamo) take Percy to Miami to refurbish food truck and drive back to California, along the way building a reputation and perfecting their Latin-infused menu.
Since a complex plot would just be distracting, this film coasts on the charisma of its likeable cast, throwing in lively side roles for the likes of Scarlett Johansson as a restaurant colleague, Bobby Cannavale as a fellow chef and most memorably Robert Downey Jr. as Inez's hilariously nutty ex. Everyone is relaxed and effortlessly funny, which makes the interaction feel amusing and never remotely forced. While this is easily Favreau's most assured work as a director (that's including the first two Iron Man movies), this is also his most generous performance too. He infuses the whole film with easy-going charm.

Sofia Vergara is back on the market after splitting from fiancee.
'Modern Family' actress Sofia Vergara has revealed she’s called it quits with fiancee Nick Loeb after nearly two years of engagement.
Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb have called off their engagement
Writing on her WhoSay page, Sofia told fans "Not that anyone should care, but in order to not give the press the chance to invent crazy and hurtful drama, I prefer to tell my fans personally that Nick and I have decided to be apart.”
Sofia Vergara and Nick Loeb have separated and called off their engagement. The couple were dating from 2010 and became engaged in July 2012, unfortunately they have decided to separate owing to time issues.
Sofia Vergara and fiancé Nick Loeb have separated and ended their engagement, Vergara revealed on Friday (23rd May).
Nick Loeb and Sofia Vergara at the 20th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards in January.
Vergara posted the unfortunate news on WhoSay, wanting to "personally" inform her fans about their decision. She said "Nick and I have decided to be apart," adding "We have been having too many problems with having to figure out how to spend time together." The 41-year-old explained how they both have busy schedules and their problems have been "getting worse and worse" meaning their relationship is no longer "fun". Their decision to separate appears to be a joint one as Vergara concluded her statement with "We believe this is the best thing for us right now," adding "We are still very close."

With a witty observational script, amusing characters and a jazzy sense of life in New York, this feels like an old-fashioned Woody Allen movie, even though Allen merely costars in it. Instead, it was written and directed by leading actor John Turturro, with an easy-going charm that's irresistible even if it feels vaguely dated. And despite its potentially controversial premise, the film is so gentle that it's unlikely to ruffle many feathers.
Turturro stars as Fioravante, a florist whose life hasn't gone as planned. His one-time mentor Murray (Allen) has just been forced to close his grandfather's rare-book shop, and with too much time on his hand has started working on Fior's life. Murray thinks Fior could make a living as an escort, and sends him on a date with his dermatologist (Sharon Stone). When that goes well, a string of wealthy clients follow, including the man-eating Selima (Sofia Vergara). But one of Murray's friends is more reluctant: the devout Avigail (Vanessa Paradis) is a widowed rabbi's wife who can't have contact with other men. As she and Fior begin a tentative friendship, there might be something meaningful developing. Then a jealous community cop (Schreiber) notices that something is amiss.
As a director, Turturro keeps the scenes grounded in real situations that centre on the characters rather than the machinations of the plot. This offers a lively depiction of this neighbourhood as a melting pot of African-Americans, Italians and Hasidic Jews who are part of each others' lives. Some of this might feel a bit contrived (Murray also adopts a sprawling black family), but the interaction is jaggedly funny and packed with a generous stream of honest emotion.

Jon Favreau's 'Chef' won a major award at the Tribeca Film Festival on Sunday.
Jon Favreau is planning to donate his $26,000 cash prize from the Tribeca Film Festival to a New York City food rescue charity. The actor-director won the Heineken Audience Award for Best Narrative Film on Saturday (April 26, 2014), for his food truck movie Chef.

We thought Chef would turn out to be really, really good on the strength of the excellent trailer and the critics piled in with the positive reviews.
'Fading Gigolo' stars Sofia Vergara, and gets a limited run this weekend.
Sofia Vergara has been speaking about her nerves at shooting a ménage a trois with Sharon Stone and John Turturro in Woody Allen's romantic drama Fading Gigolo. The movie - easily the least talked about bit of cinema ever - has a limited release in the U.S this weekend.

It follows the story of Turturro's character, who plays a male escort teaming up with an unlikely pimp (Woody) to make a little bit of extra cash. Vergara and Stone play Turturro's satisfied clients.

You've had your warning, now watch the trailer below
You know the supermarket rule – don’t go food shopping when you’re hungry? Well the same applies to watching the trailer for Jon Favreau’s Chef. The beautifully shot, beautifully prepared food will have you attempting a rare venison sandwich with horseradish foam and wild rocket puree, and we all know that can’t happen.
It's all about the food in 'Chef'
The story for ‘Chef’ sees Carl Casper (Favreau) given an ultimatum: cook Dustin Hoffman’s menu or don’t cook in his restaurant. Of course, the film would be pretty boring if he went ahead gave in to his mean boss, so instead he decides to fall off the wagon somewhat, become the laughing stock of an already snobbish culinary zeitgeist, and win back his respect and friends through an intrepid street food venture.
Continue reading: 'Chef' Trailer: Do Not Watch While Hungry [Trailer + Pictures]
Carl Casper is a chef working at one of the top restaurants of Miami. Food is his ultimate passion in life and so he is utterly heartbroken when his boss forces him to cook a 'safer' menu, bypassing his usually ambitious creations. The change came about when it was found that a formidable food critic would be visiting the establishment, but, as it turns out, the menu switch was a bad idea and Carl doesn't take his subsequent criticism very well at all. After reading his bad review and going viral, he sends out a badly judged post over Twitter and is thus forced to leave his post at the eatery. Instead, he sets up his own food truck, delivering his food on wheels to anyone willing to try a new culinary experience, and along the way uses it to reconnect with his young son and ex-wife.
'Chef' is brilliant comedy about self-discovery, passion and drive. The movie's main star, Primetime Emmy nominated Jon Favreau ('Cowboys & Aliens', 'Iron Man', 'Elf', 'Zathura: A Space Adventure'), was also responsible for the direction, production and screenplay and it made its premiere at the SXSW Film Festival in March. It is due for UK release on June 18th 2014.
For Favreau, chefs are blue collar rockstars, and that's something he wanted to capture in this film
When you’re the man behind the camera of $1.2 billion worth of films (Iron Man 1 & 2) then you keep on churning out sequels until you can buy a country and name it after yourself, don’t you? Jon Favreau doesn’t: he walked from Marvel to make films about Cowboys & Aliens, and ‘Chef’, which you can see more of with the fantastic new clip below.
Behind the scenes of 'Chef': from left to right, John Leguizame, Jon Favreau, Bobby Cannavale and Roy Choi
‘Chef’ tells the story of a disgruntled chef, dismissed from his flagging restaurant and seemingly back to square one in the cookery game. But instead of stepping getting back on the ladder – ready to climb and climb – our chef decides to take his cooking to the streets by opening up a food van, capturing the current zeitgeist of ‘street eats’ enjoyed by foodies and hipsters alike.
Carl Casper is a well-known chef from Miami who works in a trendy LA restaurant much lauded by critics. However, when one particularly formidable critic shows up to taste Casper's food, his culinary creativity is thrown into question when his boss requests he make something a little more 'safe' than his usual creations. Unfortunately for Casper, he doesn't take criticism too well and loses his cool in a tirade which is captured on film and subsequently goes viral across all social mediums. Now jobless and unsure of his own passions, he returns to Miami to set up a food truck by the name of El Jefe Cubanos in a bid to regain some of his ingenuity and, of course, respect. The journey also sees him reconnect with his wealthy ex-wife and young son as the family attempt to rebuild the bonds between them.

Fioravante is paid to sleep with beautiful women, what could get stale?
The trailer has been released for upcoming comedy drama Fading Gigolo, the movie that sets out to test one man's endurance of having someone find and pay for women to sleep with him. It's actually skint florist worker Fioravante who gets paid for sex though, as the movie twists the common assumptions of prostitution.
John Turturro's Fioravante Is Paid To Sleep With Beautiful But Lonely Women.
John Turturro's character decides to accept a rather unusual job offer from his friend Murray (Woody Allen) who recently learned that his dermatologist and her friend were looking for a stranger to try out new sexual experiences with. After Fioravante consents, Murray charges the women $1,000, sends his friend to carry out his assigned task whilst keeping a portion of the cash for himself.
Strapped for cash, handsome but middle-aged bookshop worker Fioravante decides to accept an offer of an unusual job from his friend Murray, who recently had a brainwave after his dermatologist and her friend admitted to wanting a new sexual experience with a stranger. Murray charged them a huge $1,000, offering the modest Fioravante the chance to be a male escort for a large paycheque while keeping a portion himself. After realising that he quite enjoys the experience of worshipping single and lonely women in the bedroom, Fioravante continues his exploits with Murray and ends up meeting a particularly shy woman named Avigal. Consumed by loneliness, Avigal seeks comfort and recognition, but just how deep does her solitude go?

'Machete Kills' boosts an ensemble cast as Robert Rodriguez's action comedy looks to pack a punch at the theatres.
The first Latino action hero returns to the big screen as Danny Trejo reprises 'Machete Cortez' in 'Machete Kills' and yields his deadly blade in this sequel to the 2010 film 'Machete'. The upcoming movie is also the third based from the exploitation 'Grindhouse' fake trailers and is directed, produced and co-written by Ricardo Rodriquez.
Trejo as the Mexican spy 'Machete Cortez'
Other actors who will be reprising their roles are Michelle Rodriquez as the one -eyed rebel, Jessica Alba and Tom savini, and the new comers to the bloody epic are Charlie Sheen, Sofia Vergara, Mel Gibson, Lady GaGa, Antonio Banderas and many more.
Continue reading: 'Machete Kills' With Its Star-Studded Cast In An Action-Packed Sequel
Over the top, excessive action apparently isn't for everybody, as 'Machete Kills' is given a savage write-up by critics.
Machete Cortez is back, and this time he's got the President of the United States for a boss as he embarks on his most outrageous and dangerous adventure yet. In the sequel to 2010's Machete, Robert Rodriguez and Danny Trejo are both back as director and star respectively, in a film that has plenty to offer if you're up for a B-movie spectacle. It not, you should probably heed the words of warning from most critics, and avoid Machete Kills at all costs. Just go see Gravity or Captain Phillips this weekend instead.
Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez star in the outlandish action movie
The most badass killer every known (in this movie universe at least), Machete has teamed up with the President of the USA (played by Charlie Sheen, who adopted his birth name, Carlos Estévez, for the credits) to stop a plot from anarchist mentalist named Mendez (Demian Bichir) to destroy Washington D.C. with a nuclear bomb.
Watch the video below; beware, it's ridiculous.
Lady GaGa is all-action at the moment. She appeared as the sultry siren in the Machete Kills trailer, and now the film has a music video to match. Aura is a strange amalgamation of dance, pop and retro, much like the film is a mix of action, comedy and all out gore.
The Sultry Lady Gaga in Machete Kills
The lyric video features kitsch silhouettes of the female figure, graphics of the song’s lyrics spliced with footage and action from the film itself including scenes from her co-stars Charlie Sheen, Danny Trejo, Michelle Rodriguez and Amber Heard.
Robert Rodriguez returns to Grindhouse territory with this B-movie spoof sequel that mixes hilariously knowing jokes with painfully stiff storytelling. Fans of the genre will love it, but those expecting a sense of narrative momentum will find themselves bored when the plot stalls about halfway in. And the rampant misogynistic smirking should be too much for anyone.
After the events of the 2010 original (which itself was based on a mock-trailer from 2007's Grindhouse double bill), the former Mexican agent Machete (Trejo) has been secretly working with US Immigration. After a bust goes badly wrong, he is assigned by the US President (Sheen, performing under his birth-name Carlos Estevez) to capture psychotic drug kingpin Mendez (Bichir) in Mexico. Working with his beauty-queen contact (Heard), he heads into the danger zone pursued by the master-of-disguise Camaleon and immediately running afoul of a vindictive brothel madame (Vergara). Along the way he discovers that the real villain is a defence contractor (Gibson) back in America, so he asks his former partner-in-crime (Michelle Rodriguez) for some help.
Every scene overflows with hyper-violent action and near-naked babes with guns. And the fast-paced mayhem is frequently played out as wacky slapstick, with movie in-jokes and a general sense of chaos. Aside from the amusingly straight-faced Trejo, the actors play everything for laughs. Gibson chomps mercilessly on the scenery during his overlong scenes, while Sheen plays with his own personal history while winking knowingly to the camera. There's also a continuous parade of A-list cameos, including Gaga, Gooding and Banderas hamming up their silly scenes for all they're worth.

'Machete kills - that's what he does!'
It’s a good thing Machete and its stars don’t take themselves too seriously, because one look at the reviews would be enough to kick off a pretty serious binge. Still, the latest in the franchise – Machete Kills – is more midnight popcorn than early evening wine.
Danny Trejo and Michelle Rodriguez in Machete Kills
The film sees Danny Trejo return as ex-Federale agent Machete. He is taken on by the President of the United States (a certain Charlie Sheen, or Carlos Eztevez -we’ll get on to that later) for an especially dangerous mission. He is charged with a stopping madman revolutionary and eccentric billionaire arms dealer who has a plan to plunge the world into a dystopian nightmare.
Machete Cortez is a formidable former member of the Mexican Federal Police and happens to be one of the most badass, ruthless killers ever known. He is enlisted by the US President on a new mission to save the world, being asked to find a crazed anarchist named Mendez and prevent him from launching a nuclear weapon at Washington DC. However, it soon begins clear that he can't trust everyone around him and discovers that an arms dealer named Luther Voz may actually be the real villain in the situation as he is hatching a dastardly plan to cause chaos in every country in the world. There's something no-one's telling Machete about this business but he'll damn well try to find out what it is.

Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman has been successfully treated for cancer.
Actor Dustin Hoffman can now breathe a sigh of relief after the surgery he underwent to treat his cancer was a success. With little confirmed information regarding the nature or type of cancer, Hoffman's fans should simply be relieved that the twice Oscar-winning actor is still alive and well.
Dustin's Wife Lisa Has Supported The Actor Through Cancer.
In a statement reported by People magazine, Hoffman's publicist Jodi Gottlieb confirmed that the 75 year-old is doing well: "It was detected early and he has been surgically cured," she said, "Dustin is feeling great and is in good health." Apparently the actor and director will undergo doctor-recommended preventative treatments to minimise any chance of a recurrence of what was allegedly throat cancer in the future.

His representative, Jodi Gottlieb, announced Hoffman's cancer "was detected early and he has been successfully cured."

Further details on the procedure have, as yet, not been disclosed to the press.

Machete Cortez, a former Mexican Federale agent, returns on another mission to kill as the President of the United States calls him up to recruit him to take down a dangerous and wealthy arms dealer named Luther Voz who is planning to launch a destructive new weapon into space and wage war on his own planet. With his expert training and a history of taking down the biggest crooks of the world, he is the US government's only hope at saving the planet. However, with understandable issues from being double-crossed several times before, can he really know who to trust on his latest endeavour?

The Smurfs are back in a brilliant movie sequel that sees them take on evil magician Gargamel for a second time as he makes another attempt at harnessing the blue power of the Smurf people. This time, he has successfully created a group of similar creatures called Naughties, which he has plans to use to lure the impressionable Smurfette to him in order to finally win their potent magic. Aware of the kidnapping, the rest of the Smurfs band together on a rescue mission alongside their human acquaintances Patrick and Grace Winslow who agree to help them get to Smurfette and convince her that she belongs at home.
Right Said Fred, the nineties duo responsible for the number one 1991 hit 'I'm Too Sexy', has got involved in the promotions for the new film, marking the celebrations of Global Smurfs Day on June 22nd 2013, the day after 'The Smurfs 2' is released on the 21st. They have recorded a brand new track called 'I'm Too Smurfy', which isn't too dissimilar from their debut hit as you'd imagine, in a video featuring people in Smurf costumes getting funky and the duo painting their faces blue in honour of the Smurfs' return.
The Smurfs return following a harrowing experience lost in New York while being pursued by the evil wannabe wizard Gargamel in 'The Smurfs'. Their plight is not over, however, as Gargamel will stop at nothing to harness the power of the blue creatures. Currently an icon of sorcery in Paris, he creates two Smurf-like creatures called Naughties who he uses to tempt the impressionable Smurfette in a life of mischief as she holds the valuable secret of the spell to turn the Naughties into real Smurfs. After she is kidnapped, her family and friends embark on a mission to save her, whether she wants to be or not, and enlists the help of their human friends Patrick and Grace Winslow to take down Gargamel once and for all and lead Smurfette back on the straight and narrow.

Kim Kardashian might have sparked another wave of celebrity babies!
Modern Family star Sophia Vergara might be starting a family of her own. Earlier this week it was revealed by the National Enquirer that the actress and her fiancé Nick Loeb are expecting a baby with a surrogate mother. The Colombian-born star already has one son, Manollo, 20, from her first marriage and this will be her second child.

The end of the year never fails to spark numerous lists about our favourite celebrities and all the best and worst things they're known for over the past 12 months, top twenty celebrity melt downs, top 5 weddings, top 50 breakups, most scandalous, most attractive, least lucrative, and the list of lists goes on. But Do Something has compiled a list of the most charitable celebrities, so it really is one worth checking out.

The Peoples Choice Awards give the general public a chance to decide whose acceptance speech they want to hear. Gone are the stuffy critics and 'experts' who normally plump for how good a film, or concentrate on someone's artistic integrity when making award decisions; in are the general public, who like wardrobe malfunctions and when people treat each other awfully.
So who's up for public recognition of the entertainment kind? Perhaps one of the biggest categories is 'favourite movie actor', in which Channing Tatum, Johnny Depp, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Robert Downey Jr. and Will Smith are all in the running. We think Channing will receive the nod because of his recent Sexiest Man Alive award, but we hope Joseph Gordon-Levitt will win, because of his excellent work in Looper. On a more light-hearted note, the people will have Jane Lynch, Kaley Cuoco, Lea Michele, Sofia Vergara and Zooey Deschanel to choose from in the best comedy actress category. We think Kayley Cuoco will win despite being under pressure from Deschanel in her kooky New Girl role. The Big Bang Theory's clout should prevail, though.
The film portion of the night features a list of blockbusters, and is 80% comprised of movies beginning with 'the'; people like stuff with 'the' stuck on. The Amazing Spider-Man, The Avengers, The Dark Knight Rises, The Hunger Games and Snow White and the Huntsman are fighting it out. We hope Snow White wins. We won't tell you why. Catch the awards live on CBS, January 9th, 2012.
Two-and-a-Half Men is the show that forks out the most for its lead actors; last year Charlie Sheen topped Forbes' list of TV's Highest-Paid TV Actors list with $40m and this year its new lead Ashton Kutcher has taken over the prestigious spot, albeit with a decidedly smaller sum of just $26m.
Hugh Laurie for his role in 'House' and Ray Romano, for a now cancelled 'Men of a Certain Age' were runners up to Kutcher, each raking in $18m. We'd all be happy to plum for second place in this race. Aside from Laurie, it was entirely sitcom actors that scored the bigtime in this list, with stars of 30 Rock, Last Man Standing, Men, and The Big Bang Theory - Alec Baldwin, family favourite Tim Allen, Jon Cryer, and Jim Parsons and Alan Galecki, respectively, all managing to make it into the top ten.
However, as much as it's always great to celebrate in the successes of others, for women in the equivalent category, financial success seems to not be quite so easy. Sophia Vergara from Modern Family is this year's female top earner, but at just (ha! just?) $19m, she's lagging behind Kutcher by $7m! Plus, the genres in which these women find their careers is far more varied than men - still including comedy, but also drama, reality and medical dramas all find their way into the list. Desperate Housewives is one show that truly shows women multitasking, and Felicity Huffman and Eva Longoria, two stars of the show, both appear in the top ten. Although men still earn more than women, it seems the ladies can take the prize for versatility.
The story starts as we watch Larry, Moe and Curly (Hayes, Diamantopoulos and Sasso) growing up in an orphanage, watched over by Mother Superior (Lynch) and several rather frazzled nuns (including Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson and Curb Your Enthusiasm's Larry David). But when the orphanage is threatened with closure, the clueless trio heads out to raise the cash needed to save it. They immediately run into the shamelessly wealthy Lydia (Vergara), who hires them to bump off her husband so she can run off with his business partner (Bierko). But of course everything goes crazily wrong.

The Three Stooges is a comic caper, following the lives of three men who were left on the doorstep of an orphanage when they were babies. This updated version of the 1930s vaudeville act of the same name sees the familiar characters of Larry, Moe and Curly try to save their childhood orphanage from closure. In the process, they become embroiled in a bizarre murder plot, as well as finding themselves somehow starring in a phenomenally successful reality TV show.

Mumble (Wood) thinks he's inadequate as a father since his non-dancing son Erik (Acres) feels like such an outsider. So when Erik runs off to visit the guru Lovelace (Williams) and meet flying penguin star Sven (Azaria), Mumble follows.
Meanwhile back home, an ice-shelf collapse has trapped the entire Emperor colony, so now Mumble, Erik and Lovelace's colony must find a solution. Perhaps some passing humans can help. Or a gang of tetchy sea elephants. Or maybe it'll be down to two renegade krills (Pitt and Damon) who are trying to find their individuality.

Lost in the city, the Smurfs befriend Patrick (Harris) and his pregnant wife Grace (Mays), whose help they need to both escape Gargamel and regenerate the vortex to get home.
Meanwhile, Patrick's under pressure from his boss (Vergara) to come up with an ad campaign.

Mark Wahlberg is perfectly cast in "Four Brothers" as an angry, scruffy Detroit greaseball who returns home for the first time in years to avenge his foster-mother's murder during a convenience store robbery.
While not an actor known for his emotional range, here his soft-featured scowl embodies resounding heartbreak without giving an inch on the kind of toughness and bravado that makes his character a loose cannon. How loose? He even tells the investigating cops (one an old friend played by the sublime Terrence Howard) who come to pay their respects that "I'm not here for the funeral."
Reunited with his three brothers -- fellow former delinquents adopted by the kindly but adamant Evelyn Mercer (Fionnula Flanagan), and played by Garrett Hedlund ("Troy") and talented rappers-turned-actors Andre Benjamin and Tyrese Gibson -- it isn't long before they're literally beating a path through the ghetto toward any suspects they can get their hands on.
