our dream roles for ex-girls star christopher abbott.
According to his interview in The New York Times, the actor is looking for something more relatable.
“The world that Lena wrote was very real, especially in New York...But it wasn’t as relatable for me on a personal level. It’s not that I only like to play roles I know to a T, but there’s something satisfying about playing parts where you really relate to the characters.”
Major props to Abbott for staying strong to his vision. But considering his play "Where We're Born" closes this week and he just has one completed movie on his IMDB page, where will we see him next?! Fingers crossed it's back on the small screen....
We've brainstormed our dream TV roles for Christopher Abbott below. Check them out, and tell us yours here!
The Newsroom: as a DC correspondent.
They're in need of some new blood, and he could be the new Jim.
VEEP: as Selina's new hire.
His brooding sensibility will be the perfect contrast to Selina's crew of fast-talking smart alecks. Plus, it's just in time for her Presidential campaign (shh...don't tell Gary!).
Orange Is The New Black: as the new prison guard.
OMG, what if he replaced Pornstache?!
Downton Abbey prequel: as a young Robert Crawley
Not much is known yet about this American spin-off, but this could definitely be the highbrow drama he's looking for.
