While he waits to do his next video game adaptation, Mark Wahlberg might hop aboard the gritty neo-noir Broken City. Though that itself sounds like the name of a video game. New drinking game idea: Mark Wahlberg Film or Video Game.

A former stage actress, ballerina, and one-time resident of the Czech Republic, Winter Ave Zoli is best known these days as the hard-headed porn star sweetheart of bearded biker outlaw Opie Winston on FX’s leading series "Sons of Anarchy."

A word from Winter: "Lyla and Opie are drawn to each other because they both have this sort of sweet sadness."
More pics of Winter after the jump…

Check out this new poster for Apollo 18. Apparently, there’s a reason we’ve never gone back to the moon, and it has nothing to do with the fact that we’re about 14 trillion in debt.
Hey you guys are clever and smart, right? I can tell by the way you give us sass in the comments sections on the site. Well we need your help to make Screen Junkies an even more enthralling experience.
