I’m sorry, but I don’t find the prospect of an HBO series based on a period re-teaming of the Delirious guys, Steve Buscemi and Michael Pitt, all that intriguing, even with the pilot being directed Martin Scorsese .
The reason, in part, is that I don’t think Pitt is capable of submitting to the mindset and behavior of an Atlantic City hustler in the 1920s. He is entirely about one thing, which is exuding his own carefully constructed moody-mannerist thing, which is fine for the most part in contemporary-type roles and films. I loved his work in Last Days and The Dreamers. All right, I’m moderately interested in seeing this.
