Mark Twain & Mary Baker Eddy - A film by Val Kilmer


Calvin A. Frye

Calvin A. Frye, 60, is Mrs. Eddy’s right-hand man who serves as her personal assistant, secretary, bookkeeper, coachman, aide, steward, spokesman, confidant, and metaphysical physician. He has been at her side for 25 years without a day’s vacation ever since her husband’s untimely death. A widower himself, Frye is a plain, plump, fastidious and fussy man who constantly disappoints Eddy with his limitations and lack of grace but who is unquestionably loyal.

    Perhaps Robert Duvall here or another fine character actor who is good at pacing the floors. He must be a good physical actor because I would think he won’t have a lot of lines. A good listener. He must be able to create mood without saying a word.

    Someone like a Richard Farnsworth. Maybe Tracy Walter.

    Hmmmmm, I like Craig T. Nelson. He usually plays an intense character but I think he has a multi-dimensional acting ability.

    Although not the exact image, I think a good choice would be robin williams. He would understand very clearly the role as well as the material.
