2012 was the tale of two actors. Mark Wahlberg’s Contraband was a mild success and Ted was one of the year’s biggest hits. On the other hand Russell Crowe made a bizarre appearance in RZA’s The Man with the Iron Fists and later showed why his vocal talents led him to be in a rock band and not pursue a career in opera in Les Misérables. Now, these two occasional blockbuster actors are going head to head in Broken City.
