Runner, Runner, the please-don’t-be-as-bad-as-it-looks movie Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake (opening everywhere October 4th!), pulled from some familiar sources for the names of its lead characters.
The two leads are named Ivan Block (Andy Bloch) and Richie Furst (ummm…Rafe Furst). Affleck takes on Block, Timberlake is good ol’ Richie.
The movies writers, Brian Koppelman and David Levien, are the dudes who brought you the best poker movie ever, Rounders. So 1) they knew exactly what they were doing going with those two guys as the lead names, and 2) there is still hope this movie will be good.
