    Love John C, but lost interest in Alex Cross projects when they cast Tyler Perry. Tyler. Perry. as Alex Cross. I mean, come on. when they booted Idris Elba from the project - HUGE mistake. He was perfect for it.

        OK this seems like a good idea but things written down in ink are never fully realized in Hollywood

          @disciple419 -agreed. -I almost feel sorry that he is in this however, because I do not see it doing well and I personally feel he is above anything TylerPerry and MatthewFox are in

              he is back, dr cox is back. not sure about tyler perry its relatively obvious he is talented, but his shows and movies are just f*cking terrible, like meet the browns. in my opinion his best role was in star trek, which is said bfor him because he had like what 2 lines in the movie.

                Johnny C... Underrated veteran actor. Give this dude a starring vehicle already.
