Re: Breaking In - New FOX Comedy - Christian Slater, Bret Harrison
I really don't see why people love Christian Slater in this at all. He's the only thing that lessens my enjoyment of the show. I'd rather see just about any other actor in that role. He comes across as an obtuse ass, and not in the good, fun, antagonist kind of way. Just a fucking asshole.
Do a lot of people really "love him" in the role, or are even supposed to love him for that matter? To me, he's little more than a walking talking plot device to advance the story the characters we're supposed to like are participating in from point A to point B.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
