This scenario is, however, probably the only one where it might be beneficial to ignore the rules. I mean, if he's found guilty (he pleaded not guilty), how else is he going to pay back the money? He'll have to dip into his piggy banks, or find work in the states, because Derek Luke has replaced him. (That's good for Luke, but there is a 12-year age difference between them... I'm not sure what the rationale is here.) The actor just played an Army Ranger in Lions for Lambs, and now he's going back in time to play one of four members of the U.S. Army's all-black 92nd Division -- who found themselves without their squad behind enemy lines. "The soldiers, bitter about racism and the feeling that their own government treats its enemy better than it does them, finds humanity in the small Tuscan village of St. Anna."
If you were a little apprehensive about the last casting announcement, the other ensemble players should sweeten the deal. Joining Luke are John Turturro, James Gandolfini, Michael Ealy (Barbershop 2: Back in Business), and two actors from Get Rich or Die Tryin', Omar Benson, and Tory Kittles. Considering the fact that the last three are young black men, I imagine they might be the other three soldiers.
