Donowitz is a psycho, and a very dumb one actually. It seems like he can’t think about what he’s doing. He is a brainless version of Mr Blonde.
Whalberg doesn’t fit the part imo, he looks too clever and serious. The same goes for Jake. Sandler could have done it, because he is used to play that kind of character. The more I think about Eli Roth, the more I believe QT has done a great job. Not because the guy is a great actor, but simply because the guy doesn’t even have to act to be Donowitz. I mean, no offense to him, but the first thought that comes to my mind when I see him is that he is a crazy guy with a low IQ.
I can see what you mean, but I wouldn’t say he’s dumb(donowitz anyway) he’s got a good sense of honor, he seems like an honest kind of person not so much a psycho, he’s involved in some distressing situations so that’s gotta have something to do with it. I look at that scene with Mrs.Himmelstein and I think someone who can convey intelligence as well as a good heart is what’s needed there. Psycho’s a strong word, I can imagine if I was a jew around the time of the holocaust… I’d be right beside him swinging a mase instead of a bat.
