Keith Hamilton CobbToday we’re speaking with actor Keith Hamilton Cobb, honestly, I think, one of the most compelling actors working on the small screen in the past decade or two. Mr. Cobb is probably best known as “Noah Keefer” from “All My Children” back in the nineties, but among geeks like us, he’s immediately identified as “Tyr Anasazi” from “Gene Roddenberry’s Andromeda.” He’s won a number of awards, and was nominated for a daytime Emmy. In addition to all that, he’s just arrestingly cool.

Mister Cobb, thank you very much for talking with us today

There is a not-very-narrow line between ‘acting’ and ‘putting on a show.’ It’s fairly broad, but it’s also occasionally hard to delineate exactly, and dependent somewhat upon culture, period, and venue. On the one hand, acting is acting is acting, right? But on the other hand consider Noh drama in Japan which moves at a speed that makes glaciers seem freakin’ sonic, and uses this staid unreality to emphasize the emotional elements of the story in a sort of hyper realized fashion. To a student of Japanese drama, a particularly slow performance can be moving, brilliant, more real than real.
