blackwing November 4, 2015 Share November 4, 2015 James Frain is a miles better actor than Jessica Lucas. Everyone knows this. Jessica Lucas would say so herself if asked. James is specifically selling a cartoonish villain type to specification of the show. This is evidenced by his deliberate overacting in giving his speeches. If Jessica was tasked with playing James' role she'd be given the same assignment.Would she? Do you know her personally and have you indeed asked her? My issue with James Frain is that he seemingly plays the same kind of character in everything. Seems like a nice guy at first but is revealed to be evil. He has typecast himself and has become a caricature of himself. As soon as he showed up this season I assumed he was going to be the big bad, and sure enough, he is.I'm pretty tired of him, and I hope that, like Carmine Falcone, he doesn't stay in Gotham beyond one season. I agree that I would love to see Tabitha assume the mantle of the big bad. I find her riveting, whereas I am just bored with James Frain. Link to comment
