Bernie Kosar, Superpowered Movie Star

Well, a beagle named Bernie at least.

In the new Dreamworks movie "I am Number Four," one of the main characters names his pet beagle Bernie Kosar, after the poster on his bedroom wall.  Of course, they mention Bernie's speed being remarkable--but this is science fiction, remember.  Although, maybe not.  Check the video below.

Named for the legendary Cleveland Browns quarterback, Bernie is John’s dog. He suddenly shows up on John and Henri’s doorstep one night…and the mystery surrounding him grows from there. More than man’s best friend, Bernie is extremely protective of John and also seems to have some paranormal superpowers of his own. Never before has John known a dog that could outpace even him in a footrace.

The movie is based on the book by Pittacus Lore, and stars Alex Pettyfer and Timothy Olyphant. 

Thanks to the Chicago-based Red Ivy Browns Backers for pointing this out!  And the full trailer (and beautiful Kosar highlight) is after the jump.
