Donald Faison (Scrubs) knows that his little ”hustle game” comedy is up against some stiff, out-of-this-world competition at the box office, but he’s trying to find the bright side. ”When Star Trek is sold out,” he suggests, ”hopefully moviegoers will check [our film] out.” He plays Leo, a slacker-stoner who works with his buddy (Mos Def) at a FedEx-like outfit called Next Day Air. Leo unwittingly delivers a package filled with 10 kilos of cocaine to the wrong people, leading to a manic battle among some pretty unforgiving tough guys. ”It’s all Leo’s fault,” says Faison of his incompetent character. ”He deserves to get his ass kicked.”
