in the Netflix mini series "The Spy". In fact, he is in the lead role.

I assumed it would be a goof so I wasn't expecting much -- but I gave it a shot.

Turns out it was a serious role based on a real life Israeli spy. I thought he was very good. Not your typical Bond, Tom Cruise, Jason Bourne, spy yarn chock full of ridiculous scenarios.

It's only six episodes so not a big investment of time.

Sounds interesting. I'll probably give it a go.

The last film I saw him in "The Brothers Grimsby" was............. er..... definitely not family viewing.

I really liked it and thought he did a great job ! And I almost didn’t watch it because I can’t normally stand him , find him very unfunny.

CC, my thoughts too. Subject matter interests me but I really can't stand the guy. Maybe I'll give it a watch.

I also had doubts about Mr Cohen in a straight role, but it actually comes off pretty well. Worth a look.

Watched episode one. It doesn't suck but the video is very washed out color-wise. Not my TV, them.

^^ I think they were going for that effect. Some scenes are almost B&W and some are vivid color.

I'm sure there is some artsy significance to that.

I figured it was intentional but I couldn't figure out why.

Like him or not, IMO he’s got quite an attractive wife

"I figured it was intentional but I couldn't figure out why."

I'm guessing they were trying to mimic the feel of the news footage from that era.

Like I said, this isn't a typical shoot 'em up spy thriller, but it's pretty suspenseful once you get through the episode one introductions.

I'm hoping to binge watch the rest of it today and tomorrow.

We started binge-watching The Spy last weekend, and we're probably near the end. I love the era-tech, and how they managed to get information across.
After ridiculously comedic roles like Borat, Ali G, and in Talladega Nights, he is a surprisingly good dramatic actor.
Problem is, they seem to spoil the ending at the very beginning...
