Who knew Tom Holland’s next gig would be an exciting crime thriller? But here we are. Our favourite Spiderman (after Andrew Garfield, of course!) is going places and we are here for it. He’ll be starring in the Apple TV+ original series The Crowded Room, a psychological thriller that will also feature Amanda Seyfried and Emmy Rossum. The first trailer of the series is already here and it promises to be quite a thrilling ride.
Created by Akiva Goldsman, the mastermind behind the acclaimed film A Beautiful Mind, the upcoming limited series draws inspiration from Daniel Keyes’s 1981 non-fiction novel The Minds of Billy Milligan, which chronicles the true crimes of Billy Milligan.
‘The Crowded Room’: Plot details
In The Crowded Room, Tom Holland will be portraying Danny Sullivan following his arrest for a significant shooting incident that rocked New York City in 1979. Through a series of gripping interviews with interrogator Rya Goodwin (portrayed by Seyfried), Danny gradually unveils the enigmatic layers of his past that ultimately led to the fateful event. As he introspectively reflects on his life, Danny grapples with pivotal moments and haunting truths that will forever alter his existence.
Speaking about the series, Goldsman revealed to Entertainment Weekly, “It’s a serialised 10-hour piece but it moves around. The point of view moves around. The sort of narrative frame moves around, so it lets you get a little jolt of seeing things new.”
Similarly, Holland discussed his portrayal of Danny and shared his perspective. He expressed, “I’ve spent so long playing Nathan Drake and playing Spider-Man, who are characters that you can depend on, people you feel safe around, and, ultimately, people that feel really capable. I really enjoyed playing Danny in those earlier episodes where I was able to lean into my more vulnerable side.”
