Talk about a stellar cast! The Counselor has already gotten a lot of buzz (some have even called it a "No Country for Old Men on steroids"), but with 3-time Oscar nominee Scott as the director and all of these amazing actors, there's no way it won't live up to the hype. As a big movie buff, I personally can't wait until the movie premieres, especially now that I know that it's starring some of my all-time favorite actors!
