Police are trying to track down two brothers wanted in a deadly stabbing outside a nightclub in Canada. One of them is a small-time Hollywood actor.

Cops in Quebec are trying to catch 38-year-old Ziad Akl.

Authorities think he fled to the U.S., while his brother may be in Costa Rica.

Akl had a small role in the film “Shutter Island” starring Leonardo Dicaprio. He also appeared in “The Fighter.”

Police say the brothers beat and stabbed a bouncer to death.

They also say the two trafficked drugs inside the club.
