To comic book fans Ioan Gruffudd may be best known as the man who portrayed Marvel’s elastic hero Mr. Fantastic in 20th Century Fox’s Fantastic Four franchise, but the classically trained Welsh actor also has a very impressive resume of non-superhero work to his credit. Gruffudd first gained attention for playing the title role on the A&E television series Hornblower, and eventually went on to appear in such assorted films as Black Hawk Down, King Arthur, The TV Set, Amazing Grace, W., Horrible Bosses, and Sanctum.
Gruffudd currently stars opposite Buffy the Vampire Slayer actress Sarah Michelle Gellar on the popular new CW series Ringer. On the series he plays Andrew Martin, a man who unbeknownst to himself, is secretly married to the identical twin sister of his own wife, who took her place after she mysteriously disappeared. The classically trained actor now returns to the big screen once again with a pivotal supporting role in the new dramatic ensemble film Fireflies in the Garden, which opens in theaters on October 14th.
Ryan Reynolds stars in the new film as Michael, a successful writer with a troubled childhood and a failing marriage, who returns home to face his demons and attend his baby sister’s college graduation. Upon arrival, his mother (Julia Roberts) is killed in a car accident and Michael must now deal with the aftermath that includes confronting his abusive father (Willem Dafoe), reuniting with his estranged aunt (Emily Watson), and forgiving his recovering alcoholic wife (Carrie Anne-Moss). Meanwhile, Michael discovers that his mother was having an affair with a co-worker of his father’s (Gruffudd), a college professor whose class she was taking. Eventually, Michael must come to terms with his childhood, his family and his own life before ha can move on.
The battle for box office supremacy in the year's first really competitive weekend came down to a photo finish, with the Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston romantic comedy Just Go With It beating out pocket-sized pop star Justin Bieber's 3D concert documentary Never Say Never by less than a million dollars, with an estimated $31 million and $30.3 million, respectively. Though it was by a narrow margin, this marks the 11th consecutive number one opening from reigning comedy king Sandler. Disney's animated Gnomeo and Juliet opened strong as well, with an estimated $25.5 million in third place.

Super Bowl weekend always seems to put a damper on the box-office, and this year was no exception making it the smallest box-office total gross in 15 years.
