SOME THOUGHTS ON THE GRANDEUR OF MICHAEL STUHLBARG

  1. Struck me as the handsomest and most smooth of a pretty handsome and smooth cast in Boardwalk Empire
  2. Brilliant as a mentally disabled murderer in Martin McDonagh's The Pillowman on Broadway
  3. Desperate and quiet Everyman in A Serious Man
  4. A nebbish predator in Blue Jasmine, a type not previously seen in tv or film; now a trope forever
