Best Supporting Actor Miami 2007 - Matthew Glass in Romance
In a play full of plus-size performances, little Matt Glass dwarfed everybody. David Mamet's filthy courtroom farce was one of the year's funniest shows, and Matt was not only its funniest character but also the most sympathetic. The love-starved boyfriend of the prosecutor, he pranced into the courtroom leaving a trail of handcuffs and dildos in his wake, sat himself on the judge's knee, and proceeded to interrupt the workings of the American justice system with his tale of domestic woe. He was too ridiculous to take seriously some terrible amalgam of everybody's most vicious stereotypes about vacuous drama-junkie queens but he somehow made you feel for him anyway. Deeply. Those who saw him do it are still wondering how he pulled it off.
