Tom Sturridge is the standout as the retarded younger brother. Although I keep going back and forth as to whether he was really good or doing an offensive "Of Mice and Men" thing, I still want to take him home and let him sit on my face.
Ben Foster is a bit much. And balding.
Alec Baldwin plays Jack Donaghy.
Agree about Sturridge, the performance not the sit on my face part. He had me with him then he lost me...kept going back and forth.
Baldwin's odd accent bugged me. Part Long Island, part Southie Boston, part I don't know what.

Tom Sturridge looks retarded normally. Don't think this was much of a stretch.
Ben Foster is cut and has an average dick (at least when soft).
Sturridge has a nice little body.
Very toned, and he pulls up his shirt a few times to reveal a long and furry treasure trail.
I've been hearing about how inarguably great and legendary this play is for years now. Not at all what I was expecting.
I suspect part of my problem was Baldwin, who is doing sitcom-level acting. It wouldn't be unfair to call it schtick.
But the play itself was a real letdown for me.
This production is weak and the very real shortcomings of the play are exposed. Also, three actors are in different plays.
The previous off-broadway production with John Mahoney, Kevin Anderson, and Terry Kinney and directed by Gary Sinise came from the Steppenwolf Theater when it was at on a roll with first-rate productions.
Daniel Sullivan, who did this revival, is too polite a director for this piece.
The script pretty much sucks. Ending is ridiculously treacly.
The comic interplay made it tolerable. It's apparently been played totally straight before; can't imagine that.
Jeez. Both Ben Foster and Sturridge look like they smoked a pot farm before posing for those pictures at R4.
