‘The Crowded Room’ Trailer: Tom Holland Is A Criminal With A Broken Psyche In Apple’s Crime Series

Try to ignore Tom Holland’s unsightly bangs in the new trailer for Apple TV+ miniseries, The Crowded Room. Go ahead, I dare ya. It’s certainly a far cry from the clean-cut look we’re used to seeing him sport in the MCU, but then his character here is a far cry from Peter Parker, as he plays Danny Sullivan, whose crimes are inspired by real-life rapist Billy Milligan, the first to successfully use multiple personality disorder to be acquitted of a major crime.

The Crowded Room is set in 1979 and framed around a series of interviews between Sullivan and interrogator Rya Goodwin, played by Amanda Seyfried. Sullivan was picked up after a shooting, and explores past traumatic experiences and memories that may or may not be his own.

Sasha Lane, Emmy Rossum, Christopher Abbott, Jason Isaacs, Emma Laird, Will Chase, Lior Raz, Henry Zaga, and Thomas Sadoski co-star in the 10-episode series created by Akiva Goldsman.

It’s actually been quite a long ride for this to finally see the light of day. The series is based on author Daniel Keyes’ The Minds of Billy Milligan, and was once eyed by James Cameron as a movie starring John Cusack. Leonardo DiCaprio spent nearly two decades circling the film, as well, without anything coming out of it.

The Crowded Room hits Apple TV+ on June 9th.
