I formed every opinion I currently have about Ryan Murphy’s work back in college with an episode of Nip Tuck in which some plastic surgeons have built Aisha Tyler’s clitoris from toe and this opinion is as follows: Ryan Murphy is not good. Every few years I challenge that opinion with an episode from the OJ Simpson show here, there is the horror of horrors. But even Enmity it just helped me remember that I can just browse Whatever happens to baby Jane should I want to see something good and not something not so good. After reviewing the trailer, however, for the upcoming Halston I am very, very ready to make a mistake!
Opening with a serious, organ-heavy cover of Depeche Mode’s “Enjoy the Silence,” the trailer features Ewan McGregor, who portrays it as a megalomaniacal, bone-crazy 70’s titanium scientist responsible for equipping Studio 54. but Lisa Minnelli specifically. At first glance, it seems that the series will make the stupid tragedy of justice of the decade. Not included is the underrated Culkin, Rory, whom I can’t wait to see young Joel Schumacher play. Also in the series will be perfectly used the damn adorable Mary Beth Peel (Gram from Dawson Creek) like Martha Graham and the always welcome Kelly Bishop. And I’m completely ready to be wrong Trial and error Christa Rodriguez as Lisa Minnelli, but I was hoping for a little more … Lisa.
As I continue to hope for the fact that this is Ryan Murphy’s room, Halston is actually created by The affair producer Shar White and director Game of Thrones, Versace, and House of cards the man Daniel Minahan, with Murphy, who is credited with writing four episodes. The good thing about giving Halston biological treatment is that we can’t go too too top with the source material, and McGregor carries controlled energy to balance a role that can go down in a parody. But my hopes were high in the past, only to be shattered and swollen on the floor of a side show tent. Here this hope springs eternal with the effort of a draped, single-breasted dress, springing from the torso, stained with 4 o’clock in the morning coca sweat.
