In Warner Bros.' upcoming action drama "The Gangster Squad," based on a series of Los Angeles Times articles, Josh Brolin plays John O'Mara, a Los Angeles police officer in an elite unit devoted to cleaning up the city's criminal element, specifically targeting a mobster operation run by Mickey Cohen (Sean Penn) — the movie's ensemble cast also features Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Giovanni Ribisi and Anthony Mackie, among others. Brolin learned a lot about the film's 1940s setting from his father, actor James Brolin, and from stories he read about the real-life officers of the era.

"The Master of Disguise" sounds as if it should be a natural for Dana Carvey, who has created a gallery of hilarious characters and impersonations on "Saturday Night Live" and elsewhere. But even his protean talent can't dent this ponderously unfunny and uninspired comedy.

The producer of "Ted & Venus" (at the Royal) has called it the "spiritual sequel" of "Harold and Maude."
