Term confirmed that Christian Slater would play the lead role of the cannibalistic ogre Mulgarath. This is fitting as the actor has stated that he enjoys darker roles, telling Looper, “I definitely enjoy playing more outrageous characters. I think I find them therapeutic.” Mulgarath is by far one of the most outrageous villains, having no qualms about stealing, destroying or killing others to get what he wants or just get them out of his way.
Fans seem to be divided at the casting, with Reddit post about controversial news. “Odd choice but I love Slater so I’m happy with him,” he wrote. u/OpeningSorbet. Another redditor, you/nintendopova replied, “I didn’t like this guy as he was the weakest character in Prince of Thieves. What am I missing?”
Christian Slater should be interesting to watch as Mulgarath, who will have an alter ego named Dr. Dorian Brower on the show. Slater’s resume, which began in 1980, shows him playing characters ranging from dubious honesty like Daniel Malloy in “Interview with the Vampire” to the frivolous psychopath J.D. in “Heathers.” It has also received wide recognition and awards for his dual role as Mr. Robot/Edward Alderson in the mind-bending crime thriller Mr. Robot. We can’t wait to see what he does with such a terrible character as Mulgarath.
