Chloe Sevigny is making a comeback. The versatile actress will be cast in the role of Catherine, a very psychologically disturbed detective that teams up with a male sidekick. James D’Arcy, who is her alter ego on A&E’s Those Who Kill, has issues of his own too. Yet the two don’t share an on-screen romance.
Instead, D’Arcy is shown acting in a brotherly manner towards Sevigny. He won’t let anyone look at her far less lay a finger on her. And that includes himself. While HBO’s True Detective is winding up, Those Who Kill has just popped up on everyone’s television screens.
The two detectives are an odd couple yet they share one thing in common: a loathing towards the seamy side of their line of work. It seems to be the case that they are cursed to continue to do something they never wanted to be a part of in the first place.
Chole Sevigny is an actress of substance and style. She goes deep into whatever character she is playing and does full justice to the role’s subtle psychology. The hints and hues she portrays in Those Who Kill lend greater realistic armor to her role as a tormented soul that just wants to get rid of all that inner tension.
Playing detective Catherine Jensen is not an easy job. Yet Sevigny manages to pull it off with remarkable ease. Sevigny chose this role simply because it is the first one of its kind that depicts a woman in the normally male world of crime-fighting detectives. The morally wishy-washy macho characters shown in the genre now have their very first female counterpart in the shape of Sevigny.
The show “Those Who Kill” illustrates a serial killer who brutally treats and then kills his victims in cold blood. The two detectives are in search of him and they are perfect partners. Like the two protagonists of The X-Files, Sevigny and D’Arcy do everything except engage in sex or love. Now that is very sexy indeed.
