    Johnny Knoxville & Forest Whitaker Round Out Cast Of Arnold Schwarzenegger's 'The Last Stand'

    Forest Whitaker Joins Arnold Schwarzenegger In Comeback "The Last Stand" Film

    I know, I know. Of course I could have picked a better photo for our pal Forest instead of this one from Battlefield Earth. It's the one film I KNOW he must regret making more than any other film. But it just goes to show you that even the greatest of actors, even Oscar-winning ones like Forest, hav...
