TEN Notable Foreign Actors to Watch – Where Are They Now?

I first published this list back in November 2009, and I've been wanting to do an update in a while, thanks to the suggestion from Iba @ ILuvCinema.

A ‘sequel’ I actually want to see: District 9 follow-up ELYSIUM

One of my favorite films of the last decade was the low-budget sci-fi movie District 9. In my review, I said that it’s such a distinctly moving, poignant and provocative film that makes you ponder long after the end credits roll.

Just like that blockbuster, I can say this with confidence, BELIEVE THE HYPE. But unlike the caped crusader tale, District …
