    Fantastic Fest Review: 'Elite Squad 2' A Sprawling, Exciting Look At The Depths Of Corruption

    More of a “Red Riding Hood” or “Millennium Series” installment than a traditional sequel, “Elite Squad: The Enemy Within” doesn’t require viewers to have seen the original “Elite Squad” because it builds upon its predecessor’s themes and ideas rather than the strict details of its plot.

    Steve Carell To Star In 'Moneyball' Director Bennett Miller's Next Film 'Foxcatcher'

    First, we just need to get something off our chest. It's an absolute crime that with his run on the "The Office" now over, six-time Emmy nominee Steve Carell didn't win one time for his fantastic turn as the Michael Scott. More than just a bumbling boss, Carell found real depth and heart in Michael Scott that allowed the character to flourish over seven seasons. Okay, mini rant over. Regardless of industry accolades, Carell has used his sitcom success to spread his wings as a dramatic actor in fare like "Dan In Real Life" and "Crazy Stupid Love," however, his greatest challenge as an actor will find him paired up with "Capote" and "Moneyball"...
