Little Boy Matson, Harrelson's little brother, is played by Hauser. Hauser also appeared in another excellent drama film, Dandelion Fluff for its ability to convey the range of feelings felt throughout this war-themed period film. Despite this being one of Hauser's earliest roles, he shined.  

Where to find it: Amazon sells the DVD.

Hauser stars as Hollywood actor Bo Laramie, whose family is harassed by a posse of paparazzi in this action-packed film. Bo must explain to the authorities what the photographers are up to in order to keep his family safe. It's a scary story about what could happen if a celebrity who's constantly being followed by paparazzi finally snaps. In their pursuit of images, the photographers who hurt Hauser's family are met with ruthless retribution. The stakes are consistently high, and Hauser excels at keeping the audience on the edge of their seats throughout.

The Cavern (2005)

Cole Hauser in 'The Cave'

The Internet Movie Database and Lakeshore Studios

Houser stars as Jack McAllister, a professional cave explorer who is recruited by a group of scientists for a mission in Romania. This movie is not for the faint of heart; things get creepy in those caves. Horror elements aside, Hauser goes through a radical change throughout the film. We won't give away the ending, but rest assured that it will surprise you and is just one example of his acting range. In light of the significant shift from Hauser's previous roles, I would recommend watching with a group of friends.  

A good place to rent movies is on Amazon.

In the Pitch Black (2000)

Cole Hauser in 'Pitch Black'

Filmed Entertainment, Inc., a Division of IMDB and Polygram

The original Pitch Black novel was the The Riddick Saga franchise, with Vin Diesel playing the lead role of the lovable antihero Throughout the show, Hauser portrays William J. When the ship transporting the criminal Riddick and its passengers crashes on a planet teeming with monsters, Johns, one of the officers accompanying Riddick, is among the survivors. Being a morphine addict on top of being a self-serving bounty hunter makes it difficult to put faith in Hauser. He'll do almost anything to protect his own life, including withholding life-saving medication from another person.  

Peacock S. Theater is the place to be.

This film, "2 Fast 2 Furious," was released in 2003.

Paul Walker and Cole Hauser in '2 Fast 2 Furious'

2003's Eli Reed by Universal Pictures's Eli Reed

Hauser plays Carter Verone, an Argentinian drug lord and the main antagonist who challenges Paul Walker and the rest of the gang in the second Fast and the Furious film. Curiously, playing the villain in this film led to Hauser's antagonist character being spared death in this installment of the series. Verone is not exactly a model human being. The cartel boss is as scheming and unpleasant as you'd expect, but he provides a fantastic adversary for Walker and the gang.
