« Previous galleryBreaking: Brand new photos of Daniel Craig as James Bond in 'Skyfall'
Best Known For: "Friday Night Lights," "Hancock"
Pro: He's done intimate drama ("Lights"), tense thrillers ("The Kingdom") and big budget Sci-Fi ("Hancock"). He's worked well with young actors, particularly on the film and TV incarnations of "Lights" (he helmed the pilot).
Con: There is this little passion project of his called "Battleship" that might end up putting him in movie jail for a long time. Can he jump on "Catching Fire" quick enough?
