Tony Goldwan plays President Fitz on Scandal, but heâ€™s been around a long time. Heâ€™s a descendent of Samuel Goldwyn, movie mogul, acted in films for a kabillion years like Ghost with Demi Moore and directed Diane Lane in â€œA Walk to the Moon.â€ Heâ€™s no schlub, and you know what? I think heâ€™s very good on Scandal. It is not easy to say lines like â€œdonâ€™t you think I want to be the president you voted forâ€ with genuine anguish. Acting through cheese. It’s an art. Pierce Brosnan is a master (See James Bond. He has one scene where a beauteous vixen has him tied in a torture contraption with a device that screws his neck tighter with each offensive word. He managed to gasp â€œletâ€™sâ€¦haveâ€¦oneâ€¦lastâ€¦.screwâ€¦â€ when said vixen asked for last words. Amazing. I clapped.)
Iâ€™ve never thought about Tony Goldwyn but I say, go you, with your acting through the suds. And not only that, he does manage to project something imposing and presidential, a man actually doing a job, but he ruins all integrity when his twitter feed has him saying â€œdude, it was so hot in there!â€ Oy, â€œdudeâ€ does not belong in the vocabulary of a fifty-something gentleman with integrity. It was quite disconcerting and made me realize I must seem similarly absurd, so I am, hereby, publicly expunging the word â€œdudeâ€ from my vocabulary. Consider it gone!
