My Dinner With Andre is essentially about what the title suggests: Wallace Shawn — best known as Vizzini in The Princess Bride — and Andre Gregory, each of whom is supposedly playing himself, have a fancy dinner together. Throughout the dinner, the actor/playwright and theater director share stories about their lives and influence each other’s perspectives. Shawn and Gregory co-wrote the film, which was directed by French director Louis Malle.

Before Dexter decided to take justice into his own hands, there was Suspect Zero, a movie about a serial killer who only targets other serial killers. Aaron Eckhart plays FBI agent Thomas Mackelway, who becomes obsessed with the murders and is haunted by his past mistakes as an agent. Fun fact: Eckhart also played main character Nick Naylor in Thank You For Smoking, for which he earned a Golden Globe nomination.
