Re: EpDis: The Hour Of The Wolf

A good start to season 4, not quite A standard (in B5 terms) so a B from me. I think part of the reason for this is that this is part of the build up to Into The Fire - not all eps can be A rated, without the build up eps, the A eps would not be anywhere near as good IMO.

I love the scenes with Cartagia, he's just so crazy and Wortham Krimmer plays him so well. One of many examples in B5 where you just can't imagine another actor playing the role. I think it must very very hard to convincingly play a nutter, but he just did it so well (maybe too well ).

Actually, I think crazies and weirdos and retards are considered easy acting roles. That's why there are always a lot of snide comments and jokes made whenever an actor wins an Oscar for such a role. In general, it is considered tougher to play a "normal" person, because it requires a lot more nuance.

Not to take anything away from Cartagia- awesome character, and the reason I got into the show in the first place.

So, yeah, As for all the Cartagia eps.

I see your point. I think was was the flamboyance and some of his manerisms that made it a great performance. The one bit that always sticks in my memory is ringing that little bell - not sure why but I liked it.

I also think a lot of it is in the eyes. Some actors can convey a lot through their eyes, but I've not seen many that can have the right intenstity in their look that creeps you out. Brad Douriff springs to mind - he's played some great nutters in his time.

Re: EpDis: The Hour Of The Wolf

Yeah, no argument about his performance.

Dourif's best is when he plays people who are a little crazy, not completely crazy. Billy from A Cuckoo's Nest probably typecast him for that forever. He does that so great on Deadwood these days.

Re: EpDis: The Hour Of The Wolf

Just like I said about Andreas when he passed away BEING G'Kar, Wortham Krimmer IS Cartagia. Both men played their characters so well that I just can't imagine anyone else playing them. (Then again I feel that way about most of the cast... ). Cartagia was a madman, and Wortham did an excellent job portraying him. He played the role with feeling and intensity. After seeing his performance as Cartagia, you really DID believe that the emperor was insane.

A. I love the chilling scene where Londo puts on the purple coat and goes outside... and at some point during that scene you go "omg... no..." the last hint you get is that high angle shot with Londo looking upward and then we go straight into the vision of shadow ships flying over centari prime.
