Woody representing the abuser
In the script for the audition, Woody, an older man, plays the part of a character named Chuck.
the family jewels in an earlier scene, with Woody we again have a slang term
for the sex organ of a man. And when
you add this to the fact that Woody starts off his interaction with Betty with
let's-play-doctor jokes like, "Just tell me where it hurts, baby,"
it should come as no surprise that with Woody, we are entering into Diane's
sexual abuse territory. This means that
when Woody says things like, "you don't rush it, I don't rush it,"
we have to consider that maybe this is what Diane's father figure said during
the acts of incest. And when Woody
says, "Dad's best friend goes to work," we have to consider that
maybe he is saying that the best friend of a father figure is his penis.
Naomi Watts about Chad Everett
"What an extraordinary character! I don't know if it was his TV training, but there was never a single moment where he was missing a beat. He was just on. I felt completely safe with the way he was working. It was a great group of people who understood each other's styles and methods of working. it just organically came together."
