Maybe a good romantic comedy could turn the tide for Mr. Homelander.
Gleeson quit acting after Joffrey partly due to all the hate he got. He also said it was just too much - nothing but hollywood life since age 8 and he wanted to do other stuff.

I don't blame Gleason for taking a break. He played his role beautifully.

Start is much older and I don't think it will define him

If I was that in tune with fish (actually let's be accurate, sea life, because you know... whales and dolphins are mammals), and treated the way everybody treats him, I'd probably give the finger to topside life and go hang out with my friends in... The Deep.

At least Arthur Curry had/has a legitimate dilemma because he is royalty and has a whole underworld kingdom to consider.

That part I knew about him taking a break because people couldn't separate him from that character. But that was years ago. I'm imaging because he was so young then, he could get back in the game and not be recognized as Joffrey because he's older, taller, etc.

But I don't blame him. He's got enough money, he doesn't have to take any roles unless he wants to. Taking a long break from being one of the most hated person in TV/movies is probably nice.

The actress who plays Stormfront is Jewish. Kind of ironic, eh?

I 100% believe that was intentionally cast to help cushion outcry.

hmm... Given the nature of the show, I'm not sure I'd buy into that.

You might be right but for now, I don't see it as intentional.

I was surprised to see Hayley Joel Osment...

Credit to him for playing a role a little too close to home. (Hasbeen child actor, not mind reading kid detective.)

Who's aged worse, him or Jake from "Two and a Half Men"?

Also, I've known 3 Rebecca's and 1 Rebekah, only one of them was Jewish.

I don't even want to answer that question because it's sad either way.

Didn't realize til after season 1 was over that was him.

Me neither, but it is just case in point that Kriepke is taking it into account with the decision making on the show.
