Anthony Mackie, who plays a supporting role in this weekend's "Runner Runner," isn't about to tell you whether he appears in "The Avengers: Age of Ultron," but he will recommend lunch digs in Harlem. He's just that kind of guy.

Mackie plays Agent Shavers, a government operative in Costa Rica determined to take down the crooked online gambling site Ivan Block (Ben Affleck) runs out of the country. Unfortunately for Richie Furst (Justin Timberlake), the young climber who latches on as Block's protege, this means his ride may have a violent end.

Mackie took a break from filming "Shelter" in New York City to talk with NextMovie about his deep desire to punch Justin Timberlake, why Jay Z is second-best to him and his deep (overwhelmingly positive) feelings about Red Lobster's cheddar bay biscuits. Get More »

Wikileaks Leaks 'The Fifth Estate' Script, Natch

Touchstone Touchstone

Techy people getting irked when movies get this detail or that wrong about them is basically the new fangirl flip-out over the slightest quote changes in book-to-screeners. We saw it with Mark Zuckerberg and "The Social Network," Steve Wozniak and "Jobs" and now Julian Assange and his team at WikiLeaks have got a thing or two to say about "The Fifth Estate," the new flick chronicling the saga of Assange and his organization.

Oh, and, in keeping with their info-spreading-like-it-or-not M.O., they've also decided to go ahead and leak the script for the film, too, because obviously. Get More »

Real-Life 'Pain & Gain' Star Wants to Be Your Pen Pal

WriteAPrisoner.com WriteAPrisoner.com

If you didn't already know, Michael Bay's recent "Pain & Gain" crime thriller fest was based on a series of actual events which took place down there in Miami, Florida in the mid-'90s. So, those buffed-up baddies portrayed so well by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Anthony Mackie were real-life thugs ... and their crimes actually happened, too.

Mackie's Adrian "Noel" Doorbal, for example, was convicted in '98 of a plethora of ills, not the least of which were two counts of murder. So, he's not exactly some teddy bear in the flesh. But if you happen to feel so inclined as to shoot the real death row-bound perp a letter, it's doable. Get More »

GALLERY: The '10 Years' Cast, 10 Years Ago

Attending a 10 year high school reunion is a bit like a time warp. People are the same, but they're not. They look the same, but, then again, they totally don't.

With "10 Years" arriving in theaters this Friday and rocking a class list we really wish we were on — from Channing Tatum and Justin Long to Jenna Dewan-Tatum and Rosario Dawson — we thought it'd be fun to see what the actors were up to just a decade ago. Some of it might surprise you, and some of it you probably already know.

Before you flip through our pseudo-yearbook: If you're looking for a glimpse at what the actors looked like in high school, check out the official "10 Years" Tumblr (but we promise this is no less humorous). And, lastly, you won't find Aubrey Plaza, one of the other awesome stars in this movie, in this gallery. We simply couldn't find any photos of her that pre-dated 2006, but it wasn't for lack of love or effort.
