Do you feel that being on the 2009 hit show has changed you as an actor? Forgotten?
Yeah, it’s day and night. It’s not just because I wore a hairpiece and had makeup on that show to make it look like my eyebrows. I don’t think I ever believed that people could really see me, but now I’m excited to reach out in different directions.
you are very open about yourself experience with alopecia How has it affected your career?of Forgotten, you were wearing a hairpieceof Gotham, you play Victor Sass, who was actually bald in the original material.of Barry, the appearance of the character does not matter at all. What do you get out of it?
I can appreciate both.from Gotham, Victor Sass is the bald villain, [and] I love lending my talents to bring characters like that to life. With that said, I also love working on stuff where the question “Where are that guy’s eyebrows? Why is he bald?” is never asked. he is exactly who he is.
Worried about being typecast as a killer based on your roles as Victor Zsasz and Noho Hank?
Well, I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it very much. That being said, I can do more. I know it’s weird to say that playing a murderous kind of psychopath is the touchstone for me, but I’m looking forward to moving away from it.
With your career skyrocketing, what character would you like to play next?
It’s not necessarily the kind of role, it’s the kind of world I want to exist in. Barry It’s clearly a tough act to follow when it comes to dark comedy. So in that genre you get very careful about what you do. But I love the idea of being in such a vast world, and I think it would be pretty cool to be part of the next one.
