Tony Goldwyn

  1. Eric Roberts, Grace, TV, 2012-2018.   Soon as Goldwyn lost the ABC dance drama to Roberts, the Scandal casting director Linda Lowy told showrunner Shona Rhimes to call him. “I’d known Shonda from Grey’s and Private, and Kerry and I had been friendly. The combination of the two I couldn’t pass up. ” In short, he was not like all the other guys seen for POTUS. Nobody wanted to be President Fitzgerald Grant III, because Fitz was not the lead!

  2. Michel Stuhlbarg, Hitchcock, 2012.    Hitchcock’s back in business!   With two films headlined by UK actors (Anthony Hopkins, Toby Jones) in bad impressions and fat suits. This is the second one: Hopkins directing Psycho. And telling Janet Leigh: “You can call me Hitch. Hold the cock.”  Lew Wasserman, his agent and later, “last of the legendary movie moguls… arguably the most powerful and influential Hollywood titan in the four decades after World War II,” was also aimed at Brad Garrett, Tony Goldwyn (Sam’s grandson), Steve Guttenberg, stand-up comic Rob Riggle, Tony Shaloub, and the great Brit, Mark Strong.
