Mel Gibson is back on the big screen with his first starring role since 2002 in Edge of Darkness.  The Oscar winner is a cop out for blood to avenge the death of his only daughter.  From the tremendous success of 2004’s The Passion of The Christ to his years of struggle with alcohol, the messy, financial divorce of his 28-year marriage, and the birth of his eighth child, does the 54-year-old Gibson still has what it takes to be a Lethal Weapon at the box office?

So far, the actor seems to be back at the top of his game, as Edge of Darkness is released into theatres right now.

LOS ANGELES: On the heels of his divorce, Mel Gibson’s going to be a dad again, as the Oscar winner and new girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, will be expecting their first child.   Gibson, 53, has seven children with soon-to-be ex-wife Robyn, who has cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the couple ending their 28-year marriage. 

“Look, when it’s all said and done”, the actor-director said on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno Monday night, “I did a pretty good hatchet job on my marriage myself.  I’m to blame.  If you’re inclined to judge, put it here.”

The 39-year-old Grigorieva, a Russian musician, has a child with former Bond Timothy Dalton. 

Gibson first broke the news when he came on The Tonight Show.  “I guess I’m the Octo-Mel now” he jokes.
