First Look Photos of Alex Cross Featuring Tyler Perry, Ed Burns, and a Crazy-Ripped Matthew Fox

If anyone has been wondering what Matthew Fox has been up to since Lost aired its final episode (besides collecting DUIs), the actor has apparently been living in the gym preparing for his role as an MMA-fighting serial killer in Alex Cross.
Based on the James Patterson novel I, Alex Cross, the movie adaptation was expected to be a change of pace for Tyler Perry, who has assumed the title role previously portrayed by Morgan Freeman in 1997's Kiss the Girls and 2001's Along Came a Spider. But it's Fox that is almost unrecognizable in the first-look photos from the movie.
Fox plays Michael "The Butcher" Sullivan, the man responsible for killing Cross' wife, and Fox appears to be surprisingly up to the task of playing the psychotic character. While the photos of Perry and Ed Burns (playing Cross's partner, Tommy Kane) look fairly tame, it would appear that director Rob Cohen (The Fast and the Furious) has created an action-heavy movie considering that almost every photo features a character holding a gun.
Rachel Nichols (Conan the Barbarian), Jean Reno (The Professional), and Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad) co-star in Alex Cross. The movie was adapted by screenwriter Marc Moss, who previously worked on both Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider.
