In Angels of America, Lane inherits the role of Roy Cohn – a closeted, power-hungry right-wing attorney who succumbs to the peril of AIDS – made famous onscreen by Al Pacino and on Broadway by Ron Leibman. Over the course of the play’s two parts, Cohn (as written by Kushner) is revealed as a man of villainy and viciousness, but also of deep loneliness and haunted self-hate.
