In many ways, Dane DeHaan is the emotional center of the gritty "Lawless," a Depression-era crime drama about the Virginia bootlegging operation of three brothers, played by Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf and Jason Clarke. DeHaan plays Cricket, a gentle soul who becomes a moonshine maker to assist his best friend Jack Bondurant (LaBeouf) and is later caught up in the extreme violence that occurs toward the end of Prohibition. The John Hillcoat-directed movie written by Nick Cave is based on a true story and opens in theaters on August 29.
Prior to "Lawless," DeHaan played a teen with extraordinary telekinetic powers in the found-footage film "Chronicle" and made an impression on TV shows like "True Blood" and "In Treatment."

Have you heard the one about the bootlegging Bondurant Brothers?
Based on a true-crime story, "Lawless" (formerly "The Wettest County," which actually sounded cooler, but ah well) stars Shia LaBeouf and Tom Hardy as Jack and Forrest Bondurant, sibling criminals who make a run for the American Dream by smuggling alcohol in Prohibition-era Virginia, an activity that brings the criminal organization run by Floyd Banner (Gary Oldman) to the attention of FBI Special Agent Charlie Rakes (Guy Pearce).

The latest piece of the "Prometheus" puzzle has arrived online, and it's a must-see.
The new clip, "Happy Birthday David," is the sort of thing companies play internally to school employees on the dangers of sexual harassment; in this case, Michael Fassbender's android David explains who he is, what he does and why he's the perfect employee in what's likely a promo video for Weyland Corporation.
David blends in perfectly, he assures us, despite the fact that he's wearing the face of one of the sexiest men alive. He can also play chess with himself, he enjoys the delights of fresh flowers, and he can do things that humans "might find… distressing or unethical." Tell us more! Get More »
