Rutherford Falls Let Michael Greyeyes Say What Indigenous People Have Long Been Wanting to Say

Michael Greyeyes started out his career as a dancer and has since become one of the go-to actors to play Indigenous icons onscreen, including Crazy Horse (in a 1996 TV film) and Sitting Bull (in 2018’s Woman Walks Ahead). But while he has built up quite the rep in playing gravitas, one thing he didn’t have much experience with was comedy, up until Rutherford Falls. On the Peacock comedy series, Greyeyes, who is Plains Cree, throws himself into the goofier world of the sitcom, playing a casino manager named Terry Thomas who turns out to have a grand scheme to bring an old contract between his tribe and Ed Helms’s family, the Rutherfords, to court.

'Wild Indian' Star Michael Greyeyes Is 'Still Haunted' by His Character's 'Inherent Violence' (Video)

"Wild Indian," a psychological thriller about two men that have to live with a crime they committed as children, has left its star Michael Greyeyes "haunted." "Makwa was so very complicated — when I read the script, I was immediately attracted to the potential of playing a character like this — and this character challenged me on every level," he told Beatrice Verhoeven at TheWrap's Sundance Virtual Studio presented by NFP and National Geographic. "I was attracted to it because Lyle (Mitchell Corbine Jr.)'s script placed an indigenous character inside the center of a frame, like the frame of narrative, and this is a space not usually reserved for indigenous actors, and I relished the opportunity to lead in that sense. But the darkness and the character's inherent violence was really something challenging for me."
