Wow…who is this fantastic actor that just embodies the character that he is?
In The Evening, he is a broken hearted soul, torn between his feelings for his best male and female friend, struggling to find a life with meaning, to be immortal. He was Buddy and my heart was broken with each swallow of alcohol he took, with each pained expression he delivered, with each line he exchanged.
In Jane Austen's Book Club, a decidedly much lighter fare, he shines as well, playing the "nice" guy, biding his time as he tries to woo a reluctant friend. Hugh Dancy, admittedly attractive, can play the role of a charismatic, loving, broken, persistent man well and time will only tell how much more versatile he can get. He's already bloody fantastic!
