Louis Gossett, Jr., Brilliant, As Usual
17 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

He makes it look so easy! He's naturally "wicked," but trustworthy. His art is where most young actors want to end up. What he does is so understated, it doesn't look like acting anymore. This is the quality that many great actors said that inhabited late stage star, Laurette Taylor.

Recently, I saw Mr. Gossett in ROOTS and he brought the same quality to that role as "Fidler." Sara Gilbert has always impressed me as a formidable actress. She needs to be given more dramatic roles and move in the direction of the great actresses like Geraldine Page. This role with Gossett was a complete opposite of what she was doing on ROSEANNE.
