People Go Crazy Over Emmy Rossum To Be Playing Tom Holland’s Mom In New Series

Will it work…?

Tom Holland has been picked to star in ‘The Crowded Room’ that will be airing on Apple+ TV as Danny Sullivan, the first man ever acquitted for various crimes and admitting to having 24 different personalities in him.

But people were confused when Emmy Rossum was picked as the mom to Tom Holland’s role on screen.

Yes, she will be Tom Holland’s dear mom in the series.

The age gap between the two is only ten years in real life, and while, sure, Tom Holland has a rather youthful face, Emmy Rossum, who is 35 and a first-time mother, certainly doesn’t look that old.

Tom is excited to “explore inspirational stories of those who have struggled and learned to successfully live with mental illness” with this seasonal anthology series. But the current takes on Emmy’s new role for the movie isn’t good, although it may have been unfounded.

The story is majorly based on Daniel Keyes’ biography ‘The Minds of Billy Milligan’ and is written by Akiva Goldsman (‘I Am Legend’) with Rossum playing as the mom, Candy, who dreamed for a man that could grant her salvation.

Amanda Seyfried has also been cast as the clinical psychologist Rya who takes on Sullivan as her most challenging case ever in her career.

“Hollywood hates middle-aged women so much that they won’t even cast middle-aged women to play middle-aged women,” wrote one enraged user.

But perhaps people were just getting too sensitive, not with all the social movements to bring minorities’ voices out. Writer Carina Adly Mackenzie clarifies that Emmy’s role as his mother will mostly appear in flashbacks when Tom was not over five years old.

Her scenes would mostly be during those times when Danny Sullivan went through the same trauma that caused his Dissociative Identity Disorder.

If he was still a toddler, then picking Emmy, who recently had her own baby, would make a whole lot more sense now.
