'Passion Play'

Here's an early look at Mickey Rourke and Megan Fox in 'Passion Play'. Looks like exactly the kind of role Rourke brings to life effortlessly, and Fox seems to be a natural here. I can already feel it.

What's surprises me is Bill Murray is also in this cast. Now, the presence of Rourke (as a down on his luck jazz trumpet player), and Fox, is reason enough to see this one. But, the addition of Murray?! Huh? Are you kidding? And, word is Murray plays a cut-throat gangster...? Bill Murray as a...gangster? Not a comedic version of a bad guy, but a hardcore violent ruthless thug? I have to see that.

Okay. It's official, then. That combo of these actors playing those characters makes 'Passion Play' a must-see.

And, get this. Wondering how first-time director Mitch Glazer got Bill Murray onto his project? Turns out Glazer had a bit part(s) in 'Scrooged'. He is listed as having played 'Guests'.

Way to go, dude. Hats off. Looking forward to it.
