Critics' Comments

"Cole plays Buck with just the right pathological gaze and, alternately, avuncular smile; he's chillingly convincing in both roles." — Ginia Bellafante, Time
"Cole is wonderfully, seductively dangerous as the evil Sheriff Lucas Buck." — Kinney Littlefield, Orange County Register
"Often Gary Cole's extraordinary performance creates humor where other actors might not convey it. As Sheriff Lucas Buck, he can ooze malevolence, but Cole is also an accomplished comedy actor. . . . Buck incorporates both humor and horror, and Cole has the ability to switch gears instantly and bring black comedy to the fore in the midst of a horrific scene." — Craig Miller, Spectrum
"It's a testament to Cole's talent that he made the scary role of Satan-incarnate sheriff Lucas Buck on the CBS shocker American Gothic funny.... And conversely, Cole made the funny role of Mike Brady in The Brady Bunch Movie scary."
