Does this man look like a rapist to you?
I think this actor is miscast in the part as written. He’s not the rich, arrogant, entitled frat boy type. When he was supposedly looming in the door yesterday (11/15), “a threatening presence,” as Billie termed it, I didn’t buy it at all.
In fact, I get the sense, based on how he seemed in his early scenes, that he was originally intended to be a good guy, though I can’t say I warmed to him as a good guy either. However, I think he could play an overly nice, repressed mama’s boy who’s a little bit “off,” a la Norman Bates.
You know who I think would be fabulous as the menacing fratboy rapist? Trevor Donovan. That scene where he dunked Stephanie in the hot tub was truly chilling.
By the way, I’ve noticed that we have not seen a face in the flashbacks we’ve seen of Stephanie’s rape. Could it be it wasn’t really Ford after all? Oh, please, Days, give me a twist!
