I kind of agree with him to a point; I really like Ritter as an actor and I've loved the Alias comics and the character, but as the TV series has gone on I really think Ritter was not a great choice for the role. For a character that needs to come off as really cold and takes no BS and is really on the defensive at all times, Ritter, IMO, comes across more as just surly and immature and petulant. It makes tropes like the hard-drinking PI seem more corny and like a kid playing at being an adult.
The casting is still miles better than the damn Iron Fist.
