OMG! I finally uploaded a picture on here!!! My first time getting it right!!! I think Liev looks pretty gritty here. Q. "Stage door Sally - there lies the curious paradox/apprehension some people (me included) have about this production. How can a man that has a muscular frame and is naturally and classically so handsome, convincingly play an overweight, (usually portrayed) unattractive man, with a bizarre sexual atraction to his young niece? I accept that Liev is a great actor, but there is no denying his physical appearnce." A. In a word, Angus, it's all about acting. Not being flippant here, but I agree with April. Liev Schreiber's appearance was just fine for the character. He wasn't too handsome in the least. I don't happen to have a jones for him anyway. Liev's wardrobe, demeanor, accent, really captured "Brooklyn longshoreman." Looking at two other Eddies - Anthony LaPaglia and Tony LoBianco. Neither of them are overweight are they? And I think both of them are quite good looking. LaPaglia was younger than Schreiber when he played the role. I don't understand the big deal being made over Liev Schreiber's appearance. It seems to me that some people (maybe not you Angus) may be looking to find a fault with this show just for the sake of finding a fault. Some theater-goers may have a bellwether "View from the Bridge" that they can't get past. X was so good, Y can't possibly compete. So be it. I think this version with Liev and Scarlett is going to be my standard bearer.
Let's see if I can post another photo... Anthony LaPaglia, yumm yumm.
