Matthew Fox will play the villain in the detective thriller I, Alex Cross, which is based on the James Patterson book.

According to Deadline, the 44-year-old Lost actor will play Matthew Sullivan, aka “Butcher of Sligo,” who kills both for money and thrills.

    There is something wrong with this I, Alex Cross is not about the butcher of sligo. That book is entitled simply CROSS. Either these articles have things mixed up or they are taking creative liberties with the storyline. Tyler Perry does not make a good alex cross…. Let’s try the isah mustafah ( the old spice guy)….
