Interview with Denis O'Hare, our forever king-
According to O’Hare, Peterson had the idea for An Iliad and approached O’Hare in 2004 about the project.
“At that time, we were in two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and Lisa was sort of wondering where the theatrical literature was that was exploring the fact that we were now a nation permanently at war,” O’Hare said. “She wasn’t really finding anything. She began to look at ancient literature for great war plays or war poems and she came across ‘The Iliad.’ She asked if I would be interested in developing a piece with her and I said, ‘Sure.’”
O’Hare and Peterson first worked together in 1987 when Peterson hired O’Hare to be in a play in Chicago. Even though they both enjoyed working together, they wouldn’t combine their efforts again until “An Iliad.”
O’Hare has taken “An Iliad” all over the country. Since the show has been so successful, O’Hare and Peterson decided to write another show — this time one that featured the Bible.
“It’s called ‘The Good Book,’ which is a play about the Bible and the history of the Bible and how it evolved,” O’Hare said. “We work via Skype, we work on the phone, we work in person, we take retreats together to write side by side, we research together … We very rarely butt heads. Occasionally we do because everybody does, but even when we do that, we both know when to back off or when to let the other person win.”
Of course, O’Hare has the evil and sadistic Russell from “True Blood” under his belt, but he also has made a name for himself on shows such as “American Horror Story,” “The Good Wife,” and movies such as “Milk,” “J. Edgar,” and “Dallas Buyers Club.”
Still, most folks will recognize him from the horror shows. His work in the movie “Quarantine,” helped push him into that genre.
“It was my first time doing [a horror movie] and I went into it with a shrug and I thought, ‘Well, everyone does a horror film every now and then, so I’ll do it,’” O’Hare said. “When I got ‘True Blood,’ I didn’t think of it as horror. … With ‘American Horror Story,’ it’s definitely horror, there’s no two ways around it. But it’s so inventive and so insane … the first year was a haunted house, the next year it was an asylum, the third year was witches and this year it’s going to be circus freaks.
“Acting is acting and when you have a scene where you have to rip somebody’s spine out of their body, you still have to approach it like an actor and think, ‘What am I feeling about this moment? What am I thinking about this? Why am I doing this?”
“Obviously, I’m a human being and I have a point of view,” O’Hare said. “I have a lesson or a message that I hope I can impart. But I don’t think we can necessarily control what an audience takes away. … I don’t even know if it’s reducible to a message because it’s a big piece and it has many, many, many messages. … We would ask the audience to simply meditate in a way on these characters and come up with their own reaction and their own conclusions.”
