Hmm that war movie has my interest a TON. He also did Tokyo Drift, which was my favorite in the series. I haven't seen the latest one just yet. Fast and Furious (4?) was so bland and boring that I didn't want to take the risk, but I've heard good things about Fast Five so I will catch it on Blu-ray.

Im interested to see what comes of his show too.

Fast Five was really good...better than I expected and I wasn't expecting much. I like most of this guys stuff so I'm looking forward to this myself...hope he does good on it.
