Twilight Actor Billy Burke Joins Nic Cage In Drive Angry
Billy Burke is one of those actors who's in Twilight even though you've never heard of him, like Anna Kendrick before Up in the Air, or whoever plays all the other actual humans in the movie. But surely the Twilight name will help him sell his next film, playing a "charismatic cult leader" opposite Nic Cage in the comedy Drive Angry.
No, I have no idea where a cult leader fits into a movie about a guy tracking down the people who kidnapped his daughter, and Variety isn't explaining. But their description of Drive Angry is encouraging, since this blatant Taken knockoff will likely only work if it has a sense of humor about itself. Maybe it'll help Burke get out of the shadow of those werewolves and vampires and establish a screen identity for himself.
