Writing a screenplay at the moment - Lovecraftian horror - Burn Gorman is the romantic lead.
And I sat through two hours of “Schindler’s List Lite” just to watch him in two scenes as a Nazi. Two scenes with Ben Kingsley, mind you, but ONLY TWO SCENES!
I LOVE Del Toro but he tends to use Burn in comedic parts. I want him to have the LEAD.
Ooooh, I adore Lovecraftian horror — and Burn would suit that really well, I think. And yes — as much as I’ve enjoyed his collaborations with del Toro so far, his characters didn’t get as much prominence as I would’ve liked. (Really wanted more of him in Crimson Peak! The horror of his sideburns was offset by the snazziness of his suit.) Del Toro seems to like reusing actors, though, and I love his work, so I’m always hopeful he’ll cast Burn again, in a role of any size.
