Cinemablend: It's a true testament to Demian Bichir's acting that when I received an email saying he was in talks to star in Oliver Stone's upcoming Savages, I hadn't the slightest idea what type of role he would play. Bichir was simply wonderful on Weeds as the powerful, corrupt and womanizing mayor, and he looks as good as a lowly immigrant gardener in the trailer for the soon to be released A Better Life. Hired thug? Cartel boss? Random friend? He could easily pull off any of those roles, but it seems Oliver Stone has something else in mind.
