Common has always struck me as an easygoing kind of guy, so it definitely threw me for a loop to see him putting a gun to a cubicle worker’s head last week. Then I remembered that Common is a talented actor as well as a dope rapper, and that I was watching him in a trailer for the movie Wanted. Moving on! All the gravity-defying assassin action in that trailer got me looking forward to Wanted‘s June 27 premiere. In the meantime, here’s another little taste you’ll find only at EW.com: An excerpt of a chase sequence involving James McAvoy and Thomas Kretschmann on a hurtling train, Angelina Jolie in a car nearby, and the spectacular collision that ensues. (Though sadly for me, there’s no Common in this scene.) Check it out below, and weigh in — how psyched are you for Wanted?
