Anthony Carrigan reflects on that “Barry” season 4, episode 4 scene


Do you feel like you have changed as an actor in this hit show, and do you feel you have grown since appearing on the show in 2009 Forgotten,

Yes, it is night and day. Not just because in that show I was wearing hairpieces and makeup to look like eyebrows. Now I’m bald and feel great about myself, but I think it also taught me how to really trust my instincts and impulses. I don’t think I’ve ever really trusted myself to look, whereas now I’m excited to go in different directions.

you are very open about yourself experience with alopecia And how has it affected your career. In Forgotten, You wore a hairpiece. In gotham, you’re playing Victor Zsasz, who was actually bald in the source material. In BarryThe appearance of the character is not relevant at all. What does this have to do with you?

I can appreciate both. From gotham, Viktor Zsasz is a bald villain, [and] I love lending my talents to bring that kind of character to life. That being said, I also love working on something where the question is never asked, “Where’s that dude’s eyebrows or why’s that bald guy?” He simply is who he is.

Do you worry about being typecast as killers based on your roles as Victor Zsasz and NoHo Hanks?

Well, I’d be lying if I say I didn’t really enjoy it. That being said, I can only do so much. I guess it’s weird to say that playing a murderous psychopath is a touchstone for me, but I’m excited to walk away. I can always come back to it, of course.

What kind of characters do you look forward to playing now as your career skyrockets?

It’s not necessarily the types of roles but the types of worlds I want to exist in. Barry This is clearly a tough act to follow when it comes to dark comedy. So in that fashion, I’ll be very judicious about what I choose to do. But I like the idea of ‚Äč‚Äčliving in a very detailed world, and I think it would be great to participate next time. whatever form it takes.
