What was it like for Tamala to wait for resolution to the cliffhanger? "It was torture!" she laughed. "I say this all the time, I'm a huge Ca...

Interview: Jeremy Renner Talks 'Kill The Messenger,' 'Avengers:
Jeremy Renner is an actor's actor. At least that's what we've come to believe. In the short time since he's exploded into the mainstream with an Oscar-nominated performance in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker", Renner has become something of a multi-purpose performer. He's proven his capabilities in a variety of different genres, from bank robbers to superheroes, and he seems keen on stretching his talents as far as they can go.

In his new film, the politically-charged thriller "Kill The Messenger", Renner takes on the true life tale of San Jose Mercury News journalist Gary Webb, wh...

The film follows a group of two couples stranded in a small town where nothing is as it seems. But the interesting thing is one of the four folks Luke is a red herring of sorts - a mi...
