    Tower Heist Review

    Also Confirms Josh Brolin As Part Of The CastMichael Peña is a great actor who we've been waiting to fall into the right project after breaking out with a strong turn in "Crash."

Even this year, he's appeared in "World Invasion: Battle Los Angeles" -- savaged by critics -- and "The Lincoln Lawyer," mostly noted for not being terrible and being the rare movie in which Matthew McConaughey keeps his shirt on.
