fans scratch their heads over what to do at 9:00 tonight, preview audiences of "We Are Marshall", which made some test screenings last night, have the perfect job in mind for LOST
's leading man Matthew Fox: Movie Star.
Reception to the film, which chronicles the astonishing rebuilding of a football team killed in a freak airplane crash, has been overwhelmingly positive; with much of the praise being targeted at LOST
With rampant rumors that (avert your spoiler irritated eyes) Fox is leaving LOST
shortly to pursue a film career, the praise is a sweet counter-punch to the critics who claimed Fox didn't have what it takes to make it on the big screen.
fans themselves have become bored with what seems to be a two-dimensional take on the character of Jack through the critically lambasted, but still mega-successful, second season. This prompted LOST
writers and Fox himself to struggle to bring more dimension to the character throughout the six week mini-season
that kicked off season three.
"Marshall" would seem to indicate that Fox has honed his craft to perfection with more than one critic using the word "Oscar" in the same sentence as Fox's name. The film itself, which debuts December 22nd, is expected to leave a mark on the genre of sports-drama meeting the highest expectations of both a tear-jerker and a feel-good comeback rarely seen in one package.
