Gabriel Loyer - The Arc

I was perusing the Matter of Chance Productions web site today, and something hit me about one actor, Gabriel Loyer.

He starts out playing good guys—victims, even—in I'm Not Crazy, The Glove Box, Outside In, and Intense Math. Then, he begins what seems like a string of bad guys, leaving a trail of carnage in his wake: Lelay in Winter's Day, a Sheriff's Henchman in Arizona Citizen, and Rupert Gallows in Rendezvous. Next, he'll be a drill sergeant of sorts (do I have this right?) in Filmic, a boxer who gets his due in Everlast, and finally Fidel Castro in Sierra Maestra.

Gabe is going to a dark, dark place. What up with that?

Yeah, a drill sgt basically.

He's pursuing more realistic roles. Not everyone is a victim. In reality, people are generally not a hundred percent good. He's exploring that. You also have to consider the kinds of areas we're heading to as writers; dark water. Funny stories about misunderstood guys don't interest me anymore.
Plus, Gabe is just really good at being a charismatic bad guy.

And they're not all ruthless killers or evil individuals per say. You could argue that the drill sgt/cinematographer isn't really a bad guy, just a jerk. Bolie is just greedy.

It's not like I did it on purpose. Or, have I? Dun, dun, dun, DUNNNN.

I'm ready to play the weird, or pitiful, or the crying guy. Or all the above. I want to cover the full range.
