Glenn Fleshler plays a pivotal role in the new measure of the zeitgeist, True Detective, in which he plays a truly frightening incarnation of our latest serial killer obsession. Fleshler also played a another incredibly indelible and alarming character in the real George Remus, the Cincinnati bootlegger who spoke in the third person.
I think that he has that bearing and mien that helped James Gandolfini become an acting hero. Gandolfini’s TV work was so incredible that he was even honored lustily by the Academy Awards. Since we now have had Fleshler in 2 high-profile roles on HBO, you would have to assume that he will be up for a lead role soon. Also note that his James Mason impression is remarkable! I would love to see Marvel snatch him up and play Thanos or the Kingpin.
