Anthony Mackie has officially gone from an “Oh Yeah, That Guy!” to a bankable movie star. Thanks to The Hurt Locker, you’ll see him in some high-profile roles very soon that don’t require him to do bad imitations of Tupac.
He’s received an offer to battle the undead alongside Brad Pitt in World War Z and is being looked at for a role in Gangster Squad. No idea what characters he will portray in either but we can assume both will require him to kick some ass. Especially the zombies. They need to learn they can’t go around biting everyone. (Variety)
