Da Brick (2011 TV Movie)
Boyega is most famous for his role as Moses in "Attack the Block," which was also his first feature film. Moses is one of the teens who live on a South London council estate that's attacked by aliens. The first time we meet Moses and his pals, they're attempting to rob a young nurse named Samantha (Jodie Whittaker), but later they all rally and work together to fight the weirdo critters trying to take over their block.
Moses is the quiet leader of this criminally inclined crew of teens, but he eventually becomes the hero of our story. You might need subtitles for this awesome indie sci-fi -- the British slang comes fast and furious -- but it's good fun. "Attack the Block" is Joe Cornish's first feature-length film.
Owens was a Us track and field athlete in the 1930s, specializing in sprinting and long jump events. His fame reached epic proportions when he participated in the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin, Germany, winning four gold medals and becoming the most successful athlete in the entire competition. Making the triumph even more notable was the fact that Adolf Hitler had originally tried to ban all Jewish and black people from competing in the games, before a threatened boycott from a number of countries forced him to relent.

Andrews' novel delivered 6.1 million viewers, the most for an original movie on ad-supported cable since November 2012.
- "Battlestar Galactica" and "Dollhouse" alum Tahmoh Penikett is playing a pivotal role in "Criminal Minds'" 200th episode. It's been revealed that his previously teased role will resolve some of the questions surrounding Jj's (A.J. Cook) time away from the Bau. Penikett's Michael Hastings
Sources tell Variety “300: Rise of an Empire”‘s Jack O’Connell, “Attack the Block”‘s John Boyega and “Magic City”‘s Christian Cooke have or are expected to test in the next week for the role of the young secret agent that is mentored by Firth’s veteran agent.
More may be added to the list but as of now these are three Vaughn as zeroed in on. There was talks at one point about Aaron Taylor-Johnson being eyed for the role but sources say that scheduling and also the fact that Johnson may have been asking for too much money may have led Fox to look at a rising star who does not cost as much.
