REVIEWS OF JOHN ROTHMAN IN ONE MISSISSIPPI

” INDIE WIRE 16 BREAKOUT PERFORMANCES OF 2016 

John Rothman, “One Mississippi

John Rothman portrayed the various levels of Bill (Tig Notaro’s longstanding step-father on “One Mississippi”) so well that even though we immediately sparked to the humorless, ritualistic patriarch, he became all the more lovable, likable, and impressive as his background was unveiled. Credit to the writers, of course, but Bill was brought to life by Rothman’s focused portrayal. He didn’t play too hard into the strict or human moments within Bill’s scenes as he carefully built a complicated man from the ground up. A veteran character actor dating back to the original “Ghostbusters,” we’re hoping this impressive turn allows Rothman the opportunity to explore more roles than ever before.
