LOL. Yeah, I had the actor confused too. I can remember thinking - when the cast was revealed - that I'd thought the actor died (because he did).Frank Langella, I think you got his name confused with Robert Loggia.
Yeah I have no real idea what the details of the accusations were or how quantifiable they were. And that's not me ignoring this stuff happens, I just had no idea what really was going on.
Langella does have a hardness and coldness about him, he can play a pretty nasty character when he wants. I could see him being dour, twisted, bitter, sullen and so forth.
Agreed. It's still a fun watch, but packs a different kind of punch.I feel it's more of a spectacle show honestly. Just people tearing up the scenery and crazy shit going on, just cutting completely loose. I mean I don't think I'm going to be "haunted" by it like I am by Bly Manor, but I'm having a great trip watching it, lol. Holy shit.
Which, hey, can be indicative of Poe including House of Usher -- that whole ending where the narrator has to flee the house when the "dead" sister goes after her brother during a storm, lol. Or the Red Death totally slays an entire house of desperate partiers. A guy ripping up the floorboards to expose the corpse he placed there because he hated the guy's creepy eye and now imagines his thudding heart filling all of his senses. It just kinda is what it is.
Worth mentioning: I thought Ruth Cobb was a pretty good fit in the Midnight Club (? that Flanagan Netflix series that was geared for teens). I have no problem with the actress, I just question whether this role was a good fit. Times being what they are (and it's definitely preferable to when women could be harrassed and/or worse), *if* she was being too sensitive, it wouldn't be available to dump her and keep Langelle.
The first time I saw Bruce Greenwood in anything was the Atom Egoyan movie Exotica. I haven't met anyone else that likes it, but I loved it and he was a big part of why.
