Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

Well .. to address the concerns in regard to Louis Turenne's health both here and in another thread .. it seems like he has been dead for half a year.

Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

That is unfortunate...

This thread makes me think of something else though...where did the monks go once B5 was destroyed? I believe Brother Theo said their task would take 40 or 50 years, meaning that completing their task probably was not finished prior to the destruction of the station (unless they finished everything much sooner than anticipated)

Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

Do we know if the monks were on the station for more than a few years even? I wouldn't be surprised if when Earth got hit by the Drakh virus the monks up and took it upon themselves to go out into the galaxy hunting for a cure too, or some other easily imaginative reason to take them from B5 to elsewhere.

Of course, I also think it's fun to think the monks in "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars" are in some way decendents, associatively, of Brother Theo's group.

Not to take anything away from the actor per say....but Brad Dourif plays the EXACT SAME CHARACTER in everything he does. He is always that guy who you take one look at him and you know he is a bit psycho and twisted. I can't think of one role where he played a normal person. Even in B5 he was a killer underneath everything, and had that killer-type look going on...

Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

I'm a little startled that you're calling Brother Edward and Grima Wormtongue the same character.

Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

Oh come on, seriously. The guy always has that same feel and portrayal. Yes the characters are different at a high level, but there are also MANY similarities. Wormtongue was just the latest role that the guy was in...there are sooooooo many more. Hell he played a psycho-off-balance kind of guy in a ST:TNG episode too I think.

On Voyager .. in two episodes. And in Myst III - even in computer games.

He definitely has been the victim of typecasting though. Which doesn't have to say anything about his acting skills, but more the roles he is given. (because the roles he is given, he playes damned well - also if they keep being very similar)

The one role that might break the system - though I don't know, never having seen the show: Doc Cochran on Deadwood. The character description on wikipedia does not resemble Dourif's usual role much.

Re: Whatever Happened to Brother Theo?

Yea, typecasting doesn't necessarily mean no talent. Bert Lahr complained after the "Wizard of Oz" movie that "oh yea, they ["Hollywood"] call me right up whenever they want a cowardly lion for the part".
