RTC Pulls Out a Pedestal For William Fichtner
know who he is and what he does. In Heat, he did whte collar
smarminess so well we hope James Spader was taking notes. In Go!,
he mixed shadiness and dysfunction to create a character that belonged
in Todd Solondz's Happiness. And in our favorite Fichtner
scene from The Underneath, Tom (Fichtner) seethes with ice
cold rage before exploding like a pit bull with an M-80 shoved up
its' ass. What follows is a transcript of our favorite Fichtner
playing 'POP GOES THE WEASEL".
Tom: It's a risk in business that the people closest to you may
do you wrong. Usually, I can figure out a way to get satisfaction.
Let's say, they're skimming....well, they can give me the money
back, work it off, something. I'm...pretty good at balancing these
things out. But, see, you can't UNFUCK MY WIFE! So I find myself
looking to the outer edges of acceptable behavior to make myself
feel better. It's not nice what comes to mind.
Wife: Tom, it was my idea to come.
Tom:THAT'S NOT HELPING, HON!!!
