Title: Sean Astin in "Law and Order"
Post by: Storyteller on March 20, 2008, 01:17:14 pm

If you missed this last night, I'm VERY sorry. This was Sean's best tv role AND performance since Jeremiah. He played a fundamentalist minister who was raising (literally since he was using children) an army of "Christian warriors". This is not arousing any upset until one of his "recruits" kills his own mother because she had an affair.

Sean is again, in a role perfectly written for him. He oozes a sort of innocent sincerity that almost has you sympathsizing, sort of, until the true nature of his zealotism breaks through his civilized facade.

The scene where he is on the witness stand near the end is Emmy worthy! I found myself wondering at first, why he seemed to be holding back, only to find out that he was going for maximum WOW when the true nature of his self-righteous fervor was revealed.

A POWERFUL role, well written and played perfectly by the perfect actor.

I have a few screen caps.

Was it Law & Order, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit or Law & Order: Criminal Intent.

I'm guessing Law & Order
