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.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
