Thread: "Mom" TV Show from 4/14/16

    "Mom" TV Show from 4/14/16

    They cast William Fichtner as Adam...would have preferred to have an actor who is actually a wheelchair user, but I still liked this episode:

    Looks like it might be a recurring role.

    Being injured while working as a stuntman, as he was in the plot, it was too close to "home" for me. I couldn't watch it and waited for the wife to finish watching before I came back in the room. I made up an excuse why I had to leave but I think she realized it hit me hard. Still thinking about it. Man I don't know why it hit me like this. I hadn't really thought about the ramifications of the injury and the loss of my career for years and years.

    Was pretty cheesy the used an a/b for the role.

    Are there any paraplegic actors with the necessary talent to play the part? It would be great to have a real para playing the part, but these shows have a tight filming schedule. If you're trying to meet a deadline you need veteran actors. Hopefully they would at least use a para for a consultant.

    Thumbs up Anyone watch Mom and seen William Fichtner playing a paralyzed guy?

    Pretty funny so far I thought.... nice to see the guy in the chair not to be shown as a sympathy character but just a normal person

    The talk about sex was hilarious imho

    They picked a well known role actor.... and he's playing it pretty well... would you rather an unknown and the character gets cut due to no connection to the public?

    Why would the character get cut because he's unknown? Are you suggesting because an actor is actually in a chair he's doesn't have the talent to act? Your assumption sounds like the early days where production would use a white man in black face rather than an actual black actor.

    I have little doubt the actor is good. His circumstances are just too close to home and brings out a visceral reaction in me. It may have been different if he had been in war or a car accident. I find nothing funny about anyone in the film industry getting injured or killed on the job and it happens quite often.

    Loved the line "Do you mind if I drink? No! Do you mind if I walk? No! I prefer you to lead I like the view from back there." Haha That and "So? His thong aint paralyzed!" haha. I have liked it so far also.
