I have no idea who either of them is but she must be one hell of a dancer if she's going to play Verdon, one of the best B'way dancers ever, not much of a singer but man could she dance. It was an honor to see her in person with several shows.

I think there is plenty for a series, mostly because Verdon remained in Fosse's life and work after he moved on romantically to other women. Remember she was with him when he died, consulting on a revival of Sweet, Charity.

"Sorry, but no one will ever top Roy Scheider. He deserved the Oscar for All That Jazz."
Agreed, he was incredible and was nominated, but the damn fool AMPAS voters didn't appreciate what they were seeing.
And it must have been a very strange experience for him, he was essentially playing the man who was directing his performance, but doing whatever screen actors do to make the director's emotional life work for the screen. Someone once asked why Fosse didn't play himself, because it was his life and experiences up there, and I said that he wasn't the kind of actor who could make his life into an Oscar-level performance, and Scheider was. It must have felt so incestuous.

I've dutifully watched all the Sam Rockwell dancing clips in this thread, and I'm underwhelmed. He dances like a more flexible Ellen DeGeneres. I know people like him in real life: They have one set of moves that they've perfected for parties and wedding receptions. That's not the same thing as having the decades of training, the technique, and the control of a legitimate dancer.
When I see headlines like this, I feel sorry for all of the unknown actors out there who also happen to be trained dancers, and would kill for a break like this. Perhaps there aren't many of them in L.A., but surely they wouldn't be hard for a casting director to track down in New York.
Finally, W&W to R32 for use of the word "terpsichorean."

R52, female dancers can't be too tall, or they'd tower over too many potential partners. So most dancers are of average height or shorter, but they're so thin that they have the elongated proportions of models.

Hollywood Reporter review:
Through the first two episodes, out of eight, sent to critics, Fosse/Verdon feels like a more restrictive thing. If you're familiar with Fosse's choreography — obligatory "jazz hands!" jokes need not apply — and the who's who of '60s and '70s Broadway and can sing along to the entirety of Sweet Charity and Cabaret and Damn Yankees, there's a lot to enjoy here, starting with Rockwell and Williams. Beyond that, however, the early installments of Fosse/Verdon lean way too heavily on familiar genre tropes relating to self-destructive geniuses and the long-suffering women who love them. The love story of Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon should open up as something bigger than just another well-cast prestige TV antihero saga. So far, it hasn't.

In fact, the WIlliams hype machine will go into high gear with this project. And really it's Rockwell who ought to be getting any accolades they pass out. His work is the headline. Fosse is a fucking legend, and he had a very specific style and skill as a dancer/choreographer. This series looks like it has a lot of dancing in it, so Rockwell ought to be the absolute center of it, but we will get way too much Michele Williams.

R110, Sam is superb at the "kind of acting" where one inhabits the character such that the performance seems not to be one, but to be "real."
Plus, he himself projects humanity, decency, and openness, and thus brings (at least glimpses of) those qualities to characters who might be less than savory. See: "Three Billboards...".

I read the bio it was based on, and, although it made me loath Fosse the man, it did make me want to revisit some of his movies and choreography. I've watched three episodes of the mini series. Williams is pretty fantastic, but the movie seems to be intent on showing that she was the one with the talent. I think that might be revisionist history, although there is no doubt he listened to her. Rockwell is not doing well. He comes across as petulant and a bit of a cypher. You have no idea why he is as lucky with the ladies as he is, other than the power imbalance. It is nice to see the recreation of some of the set pieces, and I will certainly watch the rest of it.

R145 -- Did Fosse fuck around with men? I read the bio a long time ago, and do not remember if it addressed that. My guess is that anyone who is that ambitious would do what it takes to get ahead. He was also a cute twink when he was younger. Also, my experience has been that someone who is as sexually-driven as he was would swing the other way on occasion. It is likely he was a sex addict, and I have found they often get their fix from whomever they can.

I feel the same, R154. It’s not “bad”, but...

Yum, more Jake Lacey as Gwen’s boytoy lover.

R154, I think "what they're going for" is a star turn for Sam.

I don't see how this can last more than one season. Entertaining and sad, but also limited.

Fosse was a pussy hound, clearly, but apparently, if he couldn't find a good woman for the night, he'd go home with a dude. Several well-known Broadway and Hollywood actors said they had done him, including Harold Lang.

Watching the series has made me want to see All That Jazz, which I have not seen since it first came out, and I was far too young to understand anything in it. It is not on Netflix or Amazon. Does anyone know where it is streaming? I don't have tv, just a computer. Thanks

The highlight for me is Williams' acting. She even "acts" the songs very well, in spite of a hit-or-miss voice. Too bad she can't really dance.

Agreed, Williams is worth it. The rest of it... not so much.

Sam and Michelle are both doing a great job. The story is better than the script as are the musical numbers.

Are they banging off camera in real life IE why Williams announced she was suddenly divorced after 3 months of marriage lol?

r165 Leslie would never allow it. She has him on a tight leash, I think.

If Rockwell was banging Michelle Williams, the whole thing would add up with her divorce, although they filmed this show a while ago.

Sam was miscast.

R161, All That Jazz should be on the Criterion Channel. If not, you can just buy the Criterion DVD.

If the strippers were younger and better-looking what are you been that traumatized?

Michelle is a joy to watch, she is even slowly adding the raspy shaky voice as Gwen ages. Sublime. Always the nominee, 4 Oscar, 4 BAFTA, a Tony nom, at least the Golden Globes showed her some love once on five nominations.

I think the problem is less Rockwell than the script. He cannot show Fosse's humor and charm because the script has not given him much opportunity to do so. Other than make Fosse a gleeful monster, there is not much he can do with the material.

I'm in love with Michelle Williams. I know she seems bland and weird in real life and probably a total mess of a person.
But I cant help it. I think she's so cute and captivating.

Bob is portrayed as a sad mess, much more than in real life. There is not enough about show business itself. I wonder if any of the script writers have even been involved in a Broadway show in any capacity. Clearly they've never been dancers.

I've never thought much about Williams until this show. I was nervous because I adored Verdon, but damnit if it's not as if Williams has summoned her spirit. She's keeping me tuned in to what is a pretty dour show. I hope we get a few good Chicago recreations at least. Williams has a rather pleasant singing voice. It's limited, like Verdon's was as well, but it's nice.

Wow Fosse was nailing everything that walked. I wonder what the appeal was -- his genius as an artist? The character doesn't seem likable or cool or interesting or charming. And is ugly.
Meanwhile Michelle Williams is fucking fantastic. Her accent and body movement.

Not one of Fosse's jokes has made me laugh or smile. Especially the standup cuts when he's supposed to be um .. you know ... witty and funny.
Is it Rockwell?
|by Anonymous||reply 179||17 hours ago|
I think Rockwell is making the most of a middling script.
