FILM: 10,000 B.C.'s Steven Strait does comedy in "City Island"

Earlier this year, the epic action film 10,000 B.C. attempted to recreate the fan craze of 2006's 300. While it managed to rake in twice it's budget--close to $200 mil worldwide--it mainly succeeded in finally putting Steven Strait's name on the tip of everyone's tongue.

If you're still unfamiliar with the 21-year-old New York native, you might be surprised to know that you've probably already seen him--sans dreadlocks and loin cloth. (No, not naked.) He first broke out onto the scene in 2005's kiddie superhero flick Sky High, and then proceeded to star in one dud (Undiscovered) after another (The Covenant). Even though the critics butchered 10,000 B.C., he did get people to notice him.

His next project is a comedy--his first--with Julianna Margulies ("Canterbury's Law"), Emily Mortimer (Lars and the Real Girl), Alan Arkin, and Andy Garcia. He plays the secret love child of a prison guard. The catch is that he's one of the inmates. Of course, trying to bond with your kid through bars will become comical quickly.

Do you think he can pull it off?
