Tom Holland: Faces backlash for controversial scene in The Crowded Room
But some of Tom’s fervent supporters responded to the online haters by arguing previous ‘Spider-Man’ actors had taken similar LGBTQ roles, such as Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield.
Holland’s character deals with deep psychological issues that come to a climax in the viral sex scene, but fans were still caught off guard. There was also some hate by some who didn’t appreciate their “favorite Spider-Man” performing a sexual act with a man on camera.
From indie dramas to big-budget blockbusters, Holland has proven time and time again that he is a force to be reckoned with in the world of acting. Whether you’re a die-hard fan of Holland or simply looking for some great movies to add to your watch list, his films offer something for everyone.
The scene, which culminates in Danny being the passive partner in anal sex, has gone viral on Twitter. Some viewers expressed their shock at seeing their sweet little Spidey getting his back blown out, while others praised Holland’s acting range and willingness to play such a different role.
He plays Danny Sullivan in the thriller, a young man who is arrested on suspicion of committing a bone-chilling crime and reveals details about his alternate personality disorder during interviews with an interrogator, played by Seyfried.
Tom Holland plays Danny Sullivan in the miniseries, The Crowded Room, which is a character based on a criminal with dissociative identity disorder. He plays a controversial scene, as per backlashes making rounds on the internet, where he plays Danny’s female alter-ego. In the controversial scene, Tom Holland’s character indulges with a male person at a gay club.
A clip of Tom Holland from his new series The Crowded Room is going viral on Twitter. The actor is trending with more than 96,000 tweets mentioning him and a sex scene that he performed with another male actor. Of course, his fans are going wild after seeing their favourite Spider-Man in a never-before-seen avatar.
The show, however, does a great job in making the character come off as a victim of mental health issues, not just a criminal. Sullivan fighting his demons and criminal past is relatable thanks to writers not oversimplifying the condition.
