When actors transform for a role, we take notice (and most of the time, so does that little golden statue named Oscar). Christian Bale in ‘The Machinist,’ Matthew McConaughey in ‘Dallas Buyers Club,’ Charlize Theron in ‘Monster,’ Christian Bale in the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy, etc. Jake Gyllenhaal recently joined the club when he dropped 25 pounds to play the sociopathic Lou Bloom in ‘Nightcrawler,’ and now he’s at it again with his incredible transformation for his next film, Antoine Fuqua’s ‘Southpaw.’

“If this were a TV show, I’d watch it every single week.” These were the words I spoke right after watching Antoine Fuqua’s theatrical version of ‘The Equalizer,’ which is kind of a dumb thing to say considering that ‘The Equalizer’ was a TV show. Though, this updated version of ‘The Equalizer’ bears little resemblance to the mid-‘80s version, even though it kind of has everything to do with it.

First of all, Antoine Fuqua – who directed ‘The Equalizer’ (which premiered this week at the Toronto International Film Festival) and directed Washington in his Oscar-winning performance in ‘Training Day’ – is the definition of the word “character.” When you enter a hotel room to interview Fuqua, personality is just bouncing off of the walls.

Denzel Washington returns to action in '‘The Equalizer' trailer, though he's a little slower than he used to be. Instead of taking out a room full of criminals in sixteen seconds it takes him nearly twenty. Maybe it's time to retire.

1960 classic 'The Magnificent Seven' is a film built entirely on a foundation of star power, and the impending remake is looking to follow suit. New reports reveal that the one and only Denzel Washington is being sought for the film, and we won't lie, there are few people we'd rather see kick ass in the old West than him.

It's been a solid three years since '24's Jack Bauer had a set number of hours with which to battle terrorists, but it doesn't look like the former CTU agent will be coming out of retirement anytime soon. Even if series star Kiefer Sutherland's schedule frees up in the wake of FOX drama 'Touch's potential cancellation, attached '24' movie director Antoine Fuqua believes the project has been shelved for good. Find out if Jack Bauer could still hit the big screen inside!

Recently, Roland Emmerich was circling the script for 'White House Down,' which Sony picked up for $3 Million.
