StrandedInAZ: HempHead: Am I the only one who liked his tv show "the forgotten"?

I really liked it, so I was not surprised when it was cancelled.

I loved it, so I wasn't surprised when it got canned, either.  From 2009-2012 someone was desperately trying to get him on television.   He had three high profile shows which all got canceled, but couldn't have been cheap to make:

My Own Worst Enemy
The Forgotten
Breaking In

It's like someone thought they'd lose their soul if he didn't get a TV show off the ground.

slayer199: You can only impersonate Jack Nicholson so long before it gets old.

Yet directors seem to want "youthful sarcasm". In "How to Train Your Dragon" I kept wondering why the director wanted the Hiccup character to channel Christian Slater doing his Nicholson impression. And "Rise of the Guardians" seemed to do sorta the same.

I guess "youthful sarcasm" is every director's go-to characterization when the director is drawing a blank. "Um. Can you make it more 'edgy'? More. Even more. More. OK, every syllable is dripping with ennui and disdain. Now multiply that by 10."
