News & Interviews for The Player: Season 1
Absolutely nothing that occurs here is believable in the slightest. But does that matter? Absolutely not.
[The Player] which features Wesley Snipes as the head of Los Vegas syndicate that bets on crime... is packed with action (and Winchester's abs) as well as a cheeky, almost campy sense of humor, as if it's fully aware of how silly this all is.
It's hard to quantify but there's something more enjoyable about a program that knows its purpose and function in the TV landscape and doesn't outreach its grasp. The Player is fun, and doesn't really try to be anything more than that.
There are some good action sequences, and Snipes is his usual smooth self, but neither is enough to compensate for the convoluted, leaden premise. Game over.
[Winchester's] a charmingly roguish performer, and in The Player he's well-matched to his character.
