Celebrity: M. Night Shyamalan

It's been a long while since your boy M. Night did anything that both the critics and the streets deemed worthy of anyone's time. It's also been a while since Will Smith did anything that wasn't. It's obvious that M. Night's impending directorial effort After Earth is just the next phase in the Jaden leg of the Smith Family Hollywood Takeover, but it'd be nice if, along the way they could resurrect this two-time entertaining storyteller turned hack's career. Will After Earth be the next great sci-fi adventure, or the next fascinatingly can't-look-away M. Night train wreck? We'll know soon enough. —Frazier Tharpe
