Patrick Fischler is joining Happy! the adaption of Grant Morrison and Darick Robertson’s graphic novel of the same name.
Happy! follows Nick Sax (played by Chris Meloni), a former detective who lost it all and now as a hired killer for the mob makes just enough money to support a diet of booze, drugs and sarcasm. After one hit goes wrong, his life is forever changed by a tiny, relentlessly positive, imaginary blue-winged horse.
Fischler will play Smoothie, a well-dressed mob enforcer and sardonic soulless torturer who claims to take a “New Age approach” to his work. Vicious, lacking in empathy and capable of holding long grudges, Smoothie is thin, dapper and fastidious — “the Andy Warhol of Death.”
The upcoming show from Syfy has also cast Ritchie Coster as Mr Blue the crime boss masquerading as a successful businessman while hiding his highly profitable criminal activities.
