Who joins the cast of As We See It?
As We See It is being praised for its diverse and inclusive cast, and all three main characters have been identified as being related to autism.
Playing Jack in As We See It, Rick Glassman, 37, is a comedian, writer, actor and producer identified as autistic.
He is best known for his roles in television comedy series Undatable (2014-2016) as Burski and comedy series A Futile and Stupid Gesture as Harold Ramis. Glassman also hosts a podcast called ‘Take your Shoes Off’, a talk show that hosts anything between interviews and casual conversations on various topics.
Glassman has been in the performing arts since 2010. He is in a relationship with a British woman named Betty, who regularly appears on his podcast.
About the show, Glassman told the Independent: “People think they know what autism is, and they don’t
“That’s what I’ve learned through my diagnosis and big time through the show. There is a saying, “When you meet someone with autism, you meet someone with autism”. “
Playing Harrison in As We See It, Rutecki also identifies as autistic. He is an actor, with a previous credit in the television miniseries Aged Fruit (2014), where he played a supporting role.
About the show and his limitations, he told the Independent: “I have some sensory issues myself.
“There have been a few episodes that really affected me. One of the worst is at a play. During a break, suddenly heard 300 people talking at once, all sounds discord, everything was just overwhelming. I had to find a quiet place to hide.”
Rutecki, 28 years old, studied at Hofstra University. He keeps a low profile and doesn’t appear on any social media.
Sue Ann Pien
Playing the role of Violet, Sue Ann Pein also identifies as autistic. She is an actress and presenter, known for her role as Newt in the 2016 film Everlasting and as the receptionist in the comedy-drama series Ballers (2015-2019).
Pein spoke to the Independent about her upcoming role and said: “I grew up thinking I was weird, hiding things about myself that I thought were disgusting.
“I thought something was wrong with me. It was the same message over and over, given to me. Especially since I’m Asian, in that community there can be a lot of pressure to conform. I’m still not sure I’m doing very well. I had to take a pose: ‘How would this person visit family members?’ I act my way through social events.
“There are a lot of people in me who, by birth, understand Violet,” she said. “I know what she felt in that moment, why she said that, why she did it. This hidden side of me finally has a chance to be revealed.”
Mantegna, a Tony Award-winning actor, is known for playing David Rossi in Criminal Minds.
Mantegna will play Rick’s father in As We See It.
Mantenga’s daughter Gia was also on the spectrum and told the Boston Herald in the US, “I’ve been involved with it since its inception.
“They came to me right after ‘Criminal Minds’ stopped, and when I read the (pilot) script I was really blown away by it…for so many reasons. Jason is a great writer. , beautiful, and it had a very personal effect on me.
“They really thought that aside from the three main actors being identified as autistic, they would hire 12 (autistic) people on the set – which is really unprecedented.
“You have to get through unions and all that, and they’ve done it. I hope it’s a sign of the times, of where we’re going with inclusion.”
Sosie Bacon, 29 years old, is an American actress and the daughter of actor Kevin Bacon. She is known for her roles as Claire Layden in Mare of Easttown and Sky Miller in 13 Reasons Why.
In As We See It, she will play Mandy, their support worker.
Eight-part series, As We See It, will stream on Amazon Prime from January 21, 2022
