A big-budget action franchise like Last Reign might seem like a tough sell to studios for a guy like Becker, but you'd be amazed at the kinds of doors $253 million (Wild Hogs' worldwide box office tally) can open in Hollywood. Becker's latest film, the family comedy Old Dogs, open November 25, 2009.
