I cant stand him, why people keep on giving him work is beyond me. He is horrible to work with and that is on first hand knowledge!
Well I didn't want to get into it, but he's a Satanist. Every full moon he sacrifices 4 puppies to the Dark Lord and smears their blood on his paino. This should help you understand the score for Wicked a little bit more. Tazber's: Reply to Is Stephen Schwartz a Practicing Christian

Some people just care about what ends up on the screen to the exclusion of everything else .

Does he have a beard? Or is it just the low quality of the picture?

Agreed. He's awful. Not sure why he has a career.
"The Spectacle has, indeed, an emotional attraction of its own, but, of all the parts, it is the least artistic, and connected least with the art of poetry. For the power of Tragedy, we may be sure, is felt even apart from representation and actors. Besides, the production of spectacular effects depends more on the art of the stage machinist than on that of the poet."

If by that, you mean that he does a great job of acting like he can't act.

To each their own, but Gladiator is one of my favorite films of his.

He's a great actor at acting like he's acting when he's not acting in an acting role that requires him to act.

Awful man = Javert!! Perfect casting. XD

Unless you "humanize" him as in the tour making him surprise you every time he pops out of nowhere--what happens when you take away the vital lurking in shadows, stalker quality from a character who is engaged in a form of that for 3 hours. Yikes!

Regardless of his acting talent, that is a terrible hat.
IMHO I see Queenie as being more of a brunette...

Why would they give him a picture of a hat?

Whether you'll like him or not, he's got the part and I can't imagine his presence in the film is going to stop any of you seeing the film is it? I think he looks great. I've actually found some of his tweets about some of the prep for the film and the choosing the horse etc really interesting.

His casting should actually bring people to see this movie who otherwise wouldn't go.

Fans of L.A. Confidential, Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind, just to name a few. I'm looking forward to seeing him in this role.

I think he's an excellent screen actor ... I just hope he can sing well enough.

EDIT: One thing, though ... I do question the mustache and goatee. Would that have been "regulation" back then?
