Ben Foster has made a career out of playing edgy, intense characters about to come unstuck. Like Vincent Merrick in Hustlehe’s a little more pared down than his usual fare, like bank robber Tanner Howard in Against all odds.

The brothers are hunted by Texas Ranger Marcus Hamilton (Jeff Bridges), and the closer he gets, the more Tanner descends into savagery and chaos, leading to his own destruction.

Mark Cuban – Dancing with the Stars

“Guys in their 50s don’t have dreams. They have nightmares…and eczema.” How ironic that Stanley Sugerman of Sandler says the same thing in Hustle Who would Hubie Dubois be opposed to? Hubie believes in dreams; Stanley’s hope is jaded.
