    How do we truly think about film? Do we ignore the truth even when it is right before our eyes? Are we sometimes willing to compromise our ethics in order to achieve our creative goal?

    'Pushing Daisies' & 'Breaking Dawn' Star Lee Pace Joins Steven Spielberg's 'Lincoln'

Most people probably recognize his face from his work on two shortlived, but acclaimed television shows "Wonderfalls" and "Pushing Daisies," however, astute film fans have also picked up on his talents.
