Movie heroes played by real life villains. It’s not that the idea is surprising or even unexpected. They do call it acting for a reason. And movie heroes, whether they are the superhero champions of cartoons or meant to be grittier and more realistic, are the epitome of Hollywood fantasy – the dude who can fist fight his way out of a gang of bad guys. The exotic mutant team who saves the world. We’re not expecting realism here.
