Seeing the name Anthony Mackie in the opening credits is fast becoming a reassuring sign. Not necessarily of the quality of a movie -- we can't say we adored "Real Steel" or "What's Your Number" exactly -- but an indication that at least one good performance will take place over the course of the running time. Since breaking out two years back in "The Hurt Locker," Mackie has become one of the most in-demand actors around, and he's set to appear in dramedy "Ten Year," biopic "Bolden!," horrror "Vipaka," summer tentpole "Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter" and starry drama "Gangster Squad" before the year is out. But first, opening this week, is the thriller "Man On A Ledge," in which Mackie plays the ex-partner and best friend of Sam Worthington's disgraced cop, a man planning a spectacular revenge on the financier (Ed Harris) who framed him. We caught up with the actor last. »
