The Counselor Teaser: Go for the Ridley Scott–Cormac McCarthy Collabo, Stay for Javier Bardem’s Hair

Though a few Cormac McCarthy novels have been adapted for features, The Counselor, which comes out on November 15, will be his first original screenplay to hit theaters. Directed by Ridley Scott, it stars Michael Fassbender as a lawyer who gets involved in a drug-trafficking ring. Then, as these things go, stuff gets intense and weird and scary and sexy. The intense, sexy weirdos Fassbender runs into include Brad Pitt, Cameron Diaz, Penélope Cruz, and Javier Bardem (and Brian Grazer's haircut). Don't worry, Breaking Bad's Dean Norris is also in it — probably there to catch all the good-looking bad guys.
