    Jason Bateman, Ben Mendelsohn and Paddy Considine? Three heavyweight acting greats.

    Was wondering what Considine was doing lately. Just re-watched Dead Man's Shoes today. Whoever is the director of casting for this is doing an amazing job!

  • Anything. Everything. Nothing.

    Watched a couple episodes. Absolutely freak'! More delusional witchcraft for zombie tv fanatics. Stephen King needs to stop his political rants and concentrate on writing. His last few novels must have been written by a child.

    Es excepcional. Una gran serie. Respeto al público, a los personajes, a los actores, una gran historia muy bien llevada. Gracias a todos los que lo hayan hecho posible.

    It takes place in the south, but with not one southern accent to be found.🤔

  • Dougal Mackenzie Smith

    This series is good but it could be a lot scarier. The tone set in the first couple episodes has sadly not carried throughout the series. It's still very intriguing though with a great cast and menacing overall theme.

    More or less I like it so far,but with the last episode it is too-tooo much to speak 7 episodes about something, that we can't see.
    Enough !
    If this is some kind of entertainment marketing....
    You speak 7 episodes already about some mysterious creaturer,power and at the end
    7 episodes of bla-bla-bla 🤮 and nothing.
    What is wrong with you people ?
    You don't want to pay for special effects, make up and etc.?
    IT'S BOOOORING and Stephen King is many things, but boring he isdefinitely NOT !!!
    Get it.

    Just finished the book. Loved the story but from the looks of this trailer I'm not a big fan of the casting. The only 2 that I'm "feeling" at this point are Jason Bateman and Cynthia Erivo. I'm even fence setting on the casting of Mare Winningham. I think she's a great actress and good for the part but I just picture Ralph and Jeannie as being a little younger.

    Movies are suppose to be for entertainment and escape. This isn't either. There's enough of this kind of SHIT going on everyday and being reported everyday. Why would anyone think this is entertaining?! I've thot for years that Stephen King was a mentally disturbed person and this kind of Shit proves it!

    Jason Bateman always plays seemingly innocent characters (likeable guy, great dad, devoted husband, generally loved by the community, etc) with a dark side.

    The book was absolutely amazing as was the audiobook on Audible. The narrator knocked it out of the park. Looks like HBO, Bateman and Mendelson are about to do the same. So excited for this.

    I understand that people who read the Mr. Mercedes trilogy have a picture of Holly formed in their minds, but I don’t think it’s a big deal for this show. Maybe HBO just wanted a diverse cast. And Holly’s personal backstory isn’t relevant in The Outsider. Red wasn’t a black man in Rita Hayworth and the Shawshank Redemption either, but I still loved the movie. Screen adaptations of books aren’t always identical.

    You want taxes,
    but I don't give them; you can confiscate them, but I don’t give them
    voluntarily, and I don’t consider myself a criminal, but I consider you as
    robbers and criminals. You want me to bring goods through your customhouses,
    but I'm bringing them by contraband, and I know it’s not I am the offender,
    but you are. The same goes with the courts, the same is with the military
    service. I don’t go into juries, neither into electors, nor into soldiers.
    Most importantly - not only do I go into neither guards, cops, collectors of
    taxes, nor any other servants of governments, but, just like murderers are
    regarded as criminals, I regard all people involved with the governments as

    Oh man. I was really looking forward to Holly Gibney’s actress. Nothing against the actress playing her in this adaptation but I already had this image in my mind. Oh well. Those who read the book will know.

      @Anita avila yes. It's where Holly Gibney first appears. She's a main character in all 3 books. The protagonist is Bill Hodges, a retired detective who becomes an unlicensed PI. The 2nd book is where they formed Finders Keepers.

    I find it hilarious that Jason Bateman gets to play as Terry. Because Terry as mentioned in the book was a huge fan of Netflix's Ozark.

    Damn HBO killin it rn guess they had to know they were slacking leaning on GOTs over the the yrs a bit too much so they had bullets in the chamber once it ended. New season of SV new season, Watchmen, His Dark Materials, Mrs Fletcher etc and now this looks absolutely fantastic. I swear between HBO GO and Netflix I dont need much else except sports and a few others like Bob's burgers Rick n Morty etc.

  • Dickson Kong

    Read the book, can't wait for this series. Holly Gibney is miscast imo... I would've like the casting of Justine Lupe (Mr. Mercedes) to continue to play the character, much closer to the source material.

  • Dario Jaramillo
    Dario Jaramillo 4 months ago

    On the surface this looks great, but for me this will be a disappointment, first they will keep Terry alive for the whole series, then Holly will have only a partial role (played by an actress that doesn't match Holly Gibney at all) in the investigation, she will only be available for one episode. For the people who have not or will not read the book, it might be entertaining.

    Can't wait for this! The book is GREAT (for all who haven't read it I highly recommend it). Ben Mendhelson is perfectly cast as Detective Ralph Anderson, plus it features the U.K's own Paddy Considine (He played the lead character Richard in Shane Meadow's brilliant 2004 film Dead Man's Shoes) as Claude Bolton. Stephen King really is a master storyteller. Thanks HBO!

    "The Outsider" gives off vibes from "True Detective" Season 1...and I mean that as a compliment! This and "Perry Mason" (also on HBO) are amongst the few shows I am looking forward to. Great novel by the way!
