If you're a fan of American stand-up, you might've already heard of Dane Cook--perhaps you've enjoyed one of his Comedy Central specials, or maybe you caught one of his appearances as guest host on Saturday Night Live.

Co-starring with Kevin Costner and Demi Moore in the psychological thriller Mr. Brooks (which opens nationwide today), as well as three other feature films opening later this year, Cook is showing the world that he's got much more to offer than on-stage laughs and a winning smile. This guy's serious.
