One of the best working actors these days is Michael Shannon (recently of 'Premium Rush'), because he always gives a committed performance, even if he's mostly asked to act a little off. He should be perfect for 'The Iceman,' the story of a real life assassin who was also a devoted father and husband.
'Happy Endings,' which wrapped its second season last month, features cast members that are not only funny, they're apparently brave as well. In fact, three of the show's stars are so fearless -- or stupid -- that they once almost got into a scrap with Chris Evans, who plays Captain America in 'The Avengers.'
Right on the heels of the release date announcement for 'Captain America 2', there's a new TV spot for 'The Avengers' which highlights the role of Chris Evans's Steve Rogers - aka Captain America - in the film. They are selling him as the leader, which fits with what Joss Whedon was saying about the film a couple months back.
