David Caruso - Oh, Horatio!

A few days ago someone from the group of Caruso fangirls mused that Horatio Caine is solely and entirely a creation of Icon of Idiocy David Caruso. If one can congratulate Caruso on that or pity him that he is not able to pull off a better performance depends on which side of the fence you are on . Caruso- hater or Caruso-supporter.

Let's assume fangirl is right , then Caruso created the most unbelievable/ most weird character ever seen on TV.

...David Caruso's portrayal of Lt. Horatio Caine is, very possibly, the most irritating performance in the history of TV acting. The way Caruso delivers his lines is too theatrical, it comes out creepy comedic.
Caine overreacts to suspects, often practically threatening them with death, talks to kids in a manner that goes right through "creepy" and borders on "my eyes my eyes I need to scrub out my eyes", repeats the name of the person he's talking to at least three times in every conversation, comes up with "affectionate" (read: also annoying) names for his team members, and is apparently biologically incapable of looking straight at anyone.
Seriously, if he bends his head any further over to the right, or twists it to look out into the middle distance any further to his left, he's going to do some serious damage.
Oh, and make up your mind - sunglasses on or sunglasses off? Not a difficult choice!...

David Caruso a fine actor?
David Caruso talented?
By no means! David Caruso is the pimple on the ass of mediocry!


Quote of the day - "The character Horatio Caine on C.S.I.: Miami suffers from bad acting-itis by David Caruso (’nuff said there, methinks)..." (http://www.cliqueclack.com/tv/2008/10/02/must-tv-cops-have-enough-issues-for-a-magazine/)
