If you thought San Antonio TV star Jackie Earle Haley was a terrifying hoot in “The Tick” last year, wait until you get a load of his maniacal return.
Haley’s cruel, yet funny, supervillain The Terror is elevated to scene-stealer in the second half of the comic-book series’ first season.
San Antonio’s wickedest star Jackie Earle Haley tickles in Amazon’s ‘The Tick’
Actor Jackie Earle Haley, who makes his home in San Antonio and is no stranger to movie and TV villainy, is quite the bogeyman once again. However, in Amazon Prime’s “The Tick,” he makes us laugh as well as cringe.
Under heavy makeup, in eerie contact lenses and using a raspy old-man voice, Haley brings wickedly delicious frights to arch enemy The Terror in the latest incarnation of Ben Edlund’s comic book parody.
