Dennis Christopher, once a mainstay of Hollywood movies, particularly in the late 70s/early 80s, looks set for a big-screen comeback should he join the cast of Quentin Tarantino’s new “Spaghetti Southern” flick Django Unchained. Christopher, who I particularly remember from the horror movie Fade to Black, has been acting for 40 years, mostly in television in shows such as Freakylinks (that’s the second time I’ve mentioned that show this week), Profiler and Deadwood.
Tarantino has a knack for resurrecting the careers of those long out of the public eye, including – most famously – John Travolta in Pulp Fiction. If Christopher does officially sign on the dotted line, he’ll play a character named Leo Moguy, who serves sadistic slavemaster named Calvin Candie’s (Leonardo DiCaprio) lawyer in the story.

Formerly known as Blood Brothers, The Reunion is the next film from WWE Studios and Samuel Goldwyn Films and tells the story of three borthers reunited after the death of their father… Sam (Cena), a hardened cop currently on suspension, Leo, a loud-mouthed overbearing bail bondsman, played by Ethan Embry, and Douglas (Boyd Holbrook), a handsome twenty-year old thief fresh out of prison, who until recently never knew he even had a real family.
Despite any criticisms other critics have about the films put out by the WWE, I’ve actually enjoyed a number of them – none more so than the two starring John Cena: The Marine and 12 Rounds; and to top it all off The Reunion also stars Ethan Embry, an actor whose work I could watch any day of the week and who, in my opinion, deserves a much bigger career – if you haven’t seen his »
