    I’ve seen more movies with him then i thought, but i’ve to confess that he’s not impressing me much with his performance. He did ok in Gangster Squad though.

      I think he still needs a big role to really show to a bigger audience what he’s capable of.

    Got to love a native New Orleanian! He was really great in Half Nelson and The Hurt Locker. Hope he gets some good lead roles in the near future.
