I wonder if Anthony LaPaglia will always look like a ganster in whatever movie or tv show he makes? He's a good actor, but I think he was just too type cast as a bad guy once upon a time and that has stuck with him.
He's a phenomenal actor. I've enjoyed him in everything he's ever done. It's interesting you thing he's typecast as a bad guy, since he's more frequently playing some kind of law enforcement character, although he's played his share of dirty cops as well.
He's a good actor, agreed, but not a favorite of mine. He's just so sullen all the time, even on Without a Trace. I used to love that show, but it's really become a soap opera, and I don't watch it near as much as I used to. If I want to watch a soap, there's plenty to choose from in the daytime.
