Glenn Fleshler Interview
* Correction: When Jamie was introducing Glenn Fleshler he mentioned his roles on True Detective and Boardwalk Empire. Jamie mistakenly stated that Fleshler played George Remus on True Detective; he actually played this role on Boardwalk Empire.
Jamie had a chance to call Glenn Fleshler, an accomplished character actor, on Saturday, August 15th. Glenn Fleshler is most recognizable from his roles as Errol Childress on season one of True Detective and George Remus, a recurring role on Boardwalk Empire. Jamie spoke with him about those roles as well as the role of Cordell Doemling, Mason Verger’s personal medical professional and henchman, on this season of NBC’s Hannibal.
Fleshler is a an actor born and bred in New York City. His parents often took him to the theater and the movies as a child and as a result he fell in love with acting at an early age. He sees acting as a craft that has to constantly be developed by the actor and enjoys any opportunity to challenge himself and grow in his craft.
Over the past couple of years Fleshler has had the opportunity to work with actors and directors that he grew up watching in stage and in the movies. Among those are directors Mike Nichols and Woody Allen, as well as actress Meryl Streep. There is a very funny Woody Allen anecdote that Fleshler shares with Jamie that you have to hear.
If you enjoyed Fleshler as Cordell or remember him True Detective and Boardwalk Empire you can catch him some upcoming series and movies. Fleshler will appear in Crime on HBO, Billions on Showtime, and two upcoming movies: The Seagull and The Rendezvous.
When Fleshler is not working on TV, films, or in the theater he enjoys spending time at home in New York City with his wife and three–year–old son.
