LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- I had originally guessed that "Cradle 2 the Grave" would be a Masterpiece Theatre-style historical drama about the British Labor Party's creation of an all-encompassing "cradle to grave" welfare state. That assumption turned out rather wrong, however.
"Cradle 2 the Grave," which stars rapper DMX and martial arts legend Jet Li, is actually a black-Asian hop-fuey action flick in the tradition of 2000's "Romeo Must Die." ...
Action movie producer Joel Silver (who, I was somewhat surprised to discover, is a different person than action movie producer Jerry Bruckheimer) has been trying to develop product to serve both markets simultaneously.
Pat then hears a tiny screaming voice coming out of the phone. Tim puts his hand over the microphone and whispers to Pat, "It's Joel Silver, and he's got me confused with a different Tim. This happens a couple of times per year."
Tim turns on the speakerphone and Pat listens, fascinated, to the famous producer scream for five minutes at Tim for what he let slip to Channing Tatum's agent when he was supposed to only tell Ryan Gosling's agent, or something.
