|Matthew Hannon & SK Kerastas|
The closest we come to seeing Archer as a feeling, interacting, reacting person is when he meets Owen, a deep-voiced, woodsy hunk who immediately comes on to Archer, first taking note of his hanging handkerchief and overall looks. “Wanna fuck?” is almost the first words from his mouth after a few niceties; but that brashness does not at all define the kind-natured, deep-feeling Owen that Matthew Hannon so ably portrays. Clearly he and Archer have not only the hots for each other but also a symbiotic relationship. What is not clear in the script or direction, perhaps on purpose, is whether Owen has fallen for a masculine girl taking on a boy’s name, a person he believes is by birth male, or someone he clearly knows is transgender.
