I saw Cassel as a total dick, just trying to seduce so that he could get a little on the side. Af for Hershey, she gave me chills. She reminded of Mommy Dearest; somebody who was so emotionally unstable.
Hershey was fantastic! Cassell is money. Been my favorite actor for some time now and had no idea going into Black Swan that he was in it. I thought it was a great film - very Polanski-ish if you ask me. And I never was big on Portman, but she totally sold it for me here.
and I think Cassell's character, although not above that kind of behavior, wasn't REALLY trying to seduce her - he was just trying to channel her "baser urges" if you will, which had been horribly, horribly repressed
