      unknown professional black actor/actress: What was the benefit of having Beyonce Knowles play a supporting role in The PInk Panther remake? What was the benefit of having Common play one of Frank Lucas’s brothers in American Gangster as well as John Connor’s right hand man in Terminator: Salvation? Just as the case is with Will.i.am in X-Men Origins: Wolverine, the benefit is one thing and one thing only - Money, money, and money.
