    If you're a foreign actor who suddenly finds themselves thrust to Hollywood fame thanks to home-grown success and some awards attention, there are one of two routes you can take. You can keep plugging on much as you did before, making films at home, and hoping they catch on in the same way (see:...

    Rosario Dawson Joins Danny Boyle's 'Trance'; Vincent Cassel Confirmed

    With James McAvoy already on board Danny Boyle's next film, the thriller "Trance," the two names alone would basically attract any willing and able actor in Hollywood for a part. Indeed, Michael Fassbender was initially attached before dropping out due to scheduling issues, and Colin Firth's name wa...
