Christian Bale could do it, and so could Mark Wahlberg and a handful of other dedicated actors. Now, Matthew Fox's name is also on the list, having beefed up considerably for his latest role, in “Alex Cross.”
The first photos of Fox in character in the upcoming thriller have emerged and, with all honesty, it's the most dramatic transformation we've seen in an actor in some time!
The film is based on James Patterson's novel “I, Alex Cross,” and is directed by Rob Cohen.
Tyler Perry takes over from Morgan Freeman, who starred as Cross in “Kiss the Girls” and “Along Came a Spider,” with Fox playing the main villain – and what a mean one he will make.
“Alex Cross” also stars Edward Burns, Jean Reno, Rachel Nichols and Giancarlo Esposito, and will be out on October 26, 2012.
