He's a good enough actor.
People generally like him.
He's handsome but not threatening to straight men.
Straight women love him.
He has a long list of credits and any show of his that failed wasn't his fault.
That's why he keeps getting work.
He's like a Jewish Tom Hanks type but for television.
|by Anonymous||reply 12||July 23, 2021 8:47 PM|
These network shows generally suck; watered down and trite writing. Wolk gets work because he has a very favorable Q score...a metric still heavily used in Network program casting. He comes across as warm and trustworthy, kissable but not sexually threatening. The networks in particular like talent that becomes familiar to TV audiences...think Kevin Alejandro and Rachel Bilson...and will use them again and again until they age out. There are all different kinds of actors...Wolk clearly just wants to keep at it and make that money while he can. He's also a middle class, practical Jewish boy, which I am sure informs his decisions.

He was excellent in non-lead roles in Mad Men and Watchmen on non-network TV. He's a dreamboat, but maybe he should stick to secondary or tertiary roles. Ordinary Joe -- starts Monday, peoples! -- looks pretty bland and bad. (Kudos to R28 for the KBornheimer reference. I laughed. Maybe James and Kyle should do a series together.

Yeah and I feel like these network actors are still in this old Hollywood world where they are so cleaned up by PR and are fake and “friendly”. I don’t feel like it was like that 20 years ago.
Like James Wolk and Justin Hartley and others are always pressed to talk about their amazing relationships and children and shit whenever they're on talk shows to appear as good guys. Justin Hartley was always talking about how amazing his wife is, the one he divorced through text message after like a year.
There’s something fake about Wolk too. All his IG promotes that kind of cheesy publicity I find nauseating. Maybe I’m just being cynical.
