This fellow is responsible for an odd little casting qwirk. He played BOTH Francis Walcott and Jack McCall in Deadwood. My experience of revealing that factoid to fans is usually met with a “really? I had no idea!” The portrayals may not have been simultanesous and he may not have the most recognzable face, but it’s a darn fine achievement to be that chamelionic. What makes it even better is that he excells in both the slimey deadbeat and twisted gentleman roles to justify the faith put on him by the powers that be. Very much enjoyed his small-ish roles in Looper, Winter’s Bone and can’t wait to see him in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years A Slave which should be out in late December.
