Yeah, I know our photo of Sam Worthington is outdated but, in our defense, the actor has taken off at a rocket's pace. Getting a better photo is on the to-do list, but for now we can report that he's landed a title role in the comicbook adaptation, The Last Days of American Crime.
Sam Worthington for American Crime
The good people at Mania have learned that Sam Worthington has agreed to star in the adaptation of Radical Publishing's comicbook, The Last Days of American Crime. Never heard of it? Then here's an official synopsis:
From critically-acclaimed writer, Rick Remender, comes a fast-paced, futuristic crime story.
In the not-too-distant future as a final response to terrorism and crime, the U.S. government plans in secret to broadcast a signal making it impossible for anyone to knowingly commit unlawful acts. To keep this from the public, the government creates a distraction, installing a new currency system using digital charge cards.
Enter: Graham Brick. A career criminal never quite able to hit the big score, Graham intends to steal one of the charging stations, skip the country and live off unlimited funds for the rest of his life. But the media has leaked news of the anti-crime signal one week before it was to go live...and now Graham and his team have just a few days to turn the crime of the century into the last crime in American history.
I guess we can assume that Worthington will be playing Graham Brick.
