Hot or not?

Hot in a wild-eyed psycho kind of way.

by Anonymousreply 1October 1, 2021 10:46 PM

He was shirtless in The New Adventures of Old Christine from time to time. Cuter wearing clothes.

One of the biggest most self-important assholes I've had the displeasure of sitting at a dinner table with, completely out of line with the lack of career achievement and how he was treating the person who brought him along. Another case where what's inside negates any of the visible exterior, which was then and still is not super hot. A testament to the power of very average people to project themselves through sheer will. A nope.

R4. He probably got that attitude from his mother, Kristin, famed as a teacher and originator of a vocal training method for actors, and, according to a friend of mine who had to interact with her when they taught at the same institution, a miserable, raging first-class cunt.

R4,did you post this on the Midnight Mass thread? "Can anyone who's watching this mess even imagine having to sit in a room with "Hamish Linklater" for more than 10 minutes, while he moans on about his "craft" and the characters he's played? (Which is, from my count, all of two at this point?) I would poison myself."

He looks like an early 20th century Serbian assassin.

R6 lol not me, but having spent way more than 10 minutes in his presence, I can confirm.

R5 right, that jogs a slight memory

He's the TV equivalent (looks-wise) of Christian Borle.

You mean he's attractive only if he has a bag over his head?

He’s not hot. Not even nerdy cute. Just homely.

by Anonymousreply 13October 2, 2021 6:04 AM

With the name “Hamish” he’s probably either Mennonite or Amish. Inbred and scary. RUN; do not walk!!!

by Anonymousreply 14October 2, 2021 6:08 AM

If you want your child to grow up to be an actor, probably best not to give him a name that starts with HAM.

It's a common English and (especially) Scottish name, popular in the UK, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand.

It's one of those Brit names that are very rare in the US: Simon, Julian, Arthur, Albert, Gerry, Nigel, Alistair, etc.

For an American it's just pretentious.

His line delivery in Midnight Mas is so affected it’s almost embarrassing. Great show otherwise.

Why would you even ask such a thing?

R21 His acting style was also in full force and effect during last year's boring network miniseries remake of The Stand. He is one of those performers who believes rarely blinking on camera and maintaining a poker face is acting.

by Anonymousreply 23October 2, 2021 2:53 PM

He’s repulsive.

by Anonymousreply 24October 2, 2021 4:03 PM

To me he spoiled the Old Christine series. Otherwise it was a really funny and intelligent show - but he was so damn creepy.

r27 Oh yikes I did not know that. My opinion of Lily just went down a bit. I wonder if Jill Clayburgh would have liked Hamish? He uses his mother's last name and not his father's, which sounds a little pretentious because his mother's family was super artsy/academia while his father (James Cormeny) was just your basic charming Irish-American theatre actor/set builder.

I admit I had a crush on him during Old Christine but then I saw Brandon Hines on Lie To Me and I forgot all about Hamish.

His acting is the verbal and physical equivalent of halitosis.

by Anonymousreply 43October 6, 2021 4:33 AM

I never had much of an opinion on the guy until we invested seven hours into this Midnight Mass nonsense. He's barely memorable from The New Adventures of Old Christine. I don't know of anything else he's been in and after watching his latest "work", I understand why he doesn't get tons of work. He really is kind of awful. He seems like he'd be much more suited for theater. I could totally see him being more of a 'thing' on off-Broadway or Broadway. But on screen? He's just too hammy and silly.

by Anonymousreply 44October 6, 2021 3:14 PM

Have to agree with all the haters here. I've worked with him and Lily and they're both horrible entitled jerks. And he's not attractive with that rubbery face and flaccid body. And he has stupid tattoos of some infantile cartoon characters (I'm spacing on the specifics.....maybe Tweety Bird?).

Jill Clayburgh, however, who I also worked with, was one of the loveliest people ever.

by Anonymousreply 45October 6, 2021 3:22 PM

His performance and acting choices in Midnight Mass made him one of the most annoying characters in the history of television! So fucking awful!

by Anonymousreply 46October 6, 2021 3:24 PM

His acting was just as affected and gag inducing in Amazon's "Tell Me Your Secrets". Lily was very good, however. I hate to hear that she's a pretentious cunt.

by Anonymousreply 47October 6, 2021 4:08 PM

Only recently started watching The New Adventures of Old Christine and was amazed they couldn't find someone better to play that role than Hamish. He's remarkably unfunny. Clark Gregg isn't much better, but the women in the show make up for all the crappy, unfunny men.

by Anonymousreply 48October 6, 2021 4:31 PM

A lot of people are praising his performance in Midnight Mass.

by Anonymousreply 51October 7, 2021 5:04 AM

I have to disagree with R48. I think Clark Gregg was perfect in that role ... and sexy as hell in his sexy, goofy way. Hamish is downright cringeworthy and almost ruins the show imo

by Anonymousreply 52October 8, 2021 2:47 AM

Interesting to read these comments as I thought he was mesmerizing and spectacular in Midnight Mass. As with all artists, I don't care if he is a jerk behind the scenes; all that affects me is the finished product.
