    Chloe Moretz Offered Role Of Young Prostitute In 'The Equalizer' With Denzel Washington

    Okay, we didn't see this coming. At all. At only sixteen years old, Chloe Moretz is already looking to push the envelope with the roles she'll take on, featuring in the grimy indie "Hick" (which by all accounts was pretty awful) while this fall she'll reign in terror as "Carrie."
