How Mythic Quest gave F. Murray Abraham the spotlight he deserves

There was a time in F. Murray Abraham life when he was not at all interested in hearing the word most identified with his career: Salieri. Abraham’s brilliant rendition of the envious, bitter and insecure composer Antonio Salieri who becomes obsessed with Wunderkind Mozart in 1984 Amadeo it won him an Oscar. But it was also the kind of role that cast a long shadow over his career.

Abraham has been working steadily ever since, but it was only in 2012 that he landed the role of the menacing Dar Adal in Homeland which moved back to center stage. He soon became a valuable player at Coen Brothers and Wes anderson Movie (s. In 2020, the creators of Mythical mission, a show about the inter-office relationships of video game developers, cast him to play the drunken, regressive and talkative sci-fi writer CW Longbottom.

In a couple of amazingly filmed and performed season 2 episodes titled “Backstory!” And “Peter” focusing on Longbottom’s rise, fall and redemption, we learn that the Nebula award-winning writer has more than a little in common with Antonio Salieri. At this point, however, Abraham doesn’t care. “It’s been so long,” he says. Vanity fair, “That’s a great thing.”

The pair of episodes is modeled after the popular and brooding season 1 episode “A dark and silent death“Starring Jake johnson other Christin Milioti pressing the pause in the power-fighting comedy among the rest of the staff in the Mythic Quest offices to focus on themes of crushed artistic dreams and fragile young love.

Citing award-winning television creatives as Phoebe Waller-Puente, Donald glover, Y Aziz ansari, Mythical mission star and co-creator Rob McElhenney has called with laughter these special episodes “just robbery. “In truth, they elevate the series beyond a much-watched office comedy into something that could best be described as art. For F. Murray Abraham, the episode” Peter “was an actor’s dream.” All I did was watch the script and start salivating, “he says.” Get out of my way. “

“Background!” which aired on Apple Plus last week, told the story of young aspiring writer CW Longbottom played with distasteful pomposity by Silicon Valley alum Josh brener. The CW in all its cocky, sweaty glory, goes to work on a sci-fi magazine called Amazing tales in the 1970s and is involved in a love triangle with the brilliant Anne (Shelley Hennig) and tall, handsome and gifted Peter (Michael cassidy). Well really, it’s more of a love circle and a lonely point. At one point, a heartbroken CW makes a reprehensible decision that will haunt him for the rest of his life and destroy his friendship with Anne and Peter.

If the CW dynamic yearning for the smart whip Anne while she only has eyes for the golden-haired Peter sounds familiar to fans of the 1987 Oscar-nominated film News broadcast, Please be assured that Mythical mission the writers knew exactly what they were doing. In the follow-up episode to the story, “Peter”, News broadcast star and Oscar winner William hurt plays the older version of the character who was surely inspired by his handsome newscaster Tom Grunick. What if News broadcast with a Amadeo twist feels like too much of an overkill descriptor for a video game show, so, well, that just means you haven’t been watching Mythical mission.

Hurt and Abraham come from a similar theatrical background and the pair spend the length of “Peter” tearing each other apart from old wounds. Bring Bill here, Abraham remembers thinking. “And we’ll show you how it’s done.”
