It's then understandable that Simon would shun a ...

    Watch: Tri-Lingual Trailer For Thriller 'Mobius' Starring Jean Dujardin, Tim Roth & Cecile De France

    Last fall, our attention was grabbed in a big way by the teaser trailer for "Mobius." Coming somewhat out of nowhere, it certainly riffed on BRAAAHM-esque, "Inception"-style marketing, but was still tantalizingly mysterious, and provided more than enough stirring imagery to intri...

King And I'We suspect we've said this before, but, while we love basically every character on HBO's much-missed masterpiece "The Wire," our favorite may have been Detective William 'Bunk' Moreland, as embodied by Wendell Pierce, the warm beating heart of the show, but capable of regular badassery (watch the Season 3 confrontation with Omar, one of the great pieces of television acting by both Pierce and Michael K.
