Whenever I see Michael Shannon is in something, I sit up and take notice. You should too. He's delightfully bizarre, and he channels that aspect of his personality very well in all of his roles. You probably remember him most recently from "The Runaways," in which he played band manager Kim Fowley.
The news today is that Shannon will star as the villain in "Premium Rush," opposite star Joseph Gordon-Levitt. The story follows Gordon-Levitt as a dirty cop (Shannon) pursues him through New York City, set on recovering some mysterious envelope that has come into the kid's possession. Jamie Chung, who appears in this Friday's "Grown Ups," is also in talks to star. Head over to The Hollywood Reporter for the full story.
