Actor: Michiel Huisman
TV Show: Treme (2010-Present)
On top of being generally unlikeable as a character, Sonny is one the very few characters on the show who is lacking any sort of passion. The street musician from the Netherlands has a beautiful and talented girlfriend to perform with, and they run around the city. They make friends and perform with some legends around town, but Sonny, still reeling from helping evacuate people from the roofs of homes during Katrina, tends more to cheat, steal, and get high. Most importantly, he just isn't a believable musician. On a show that does justice to the gigging musician as well or better than any on TV, Sonny sticks out like a bearded thumb. When he gets compliments from strangers and especially from other musicians, it's hard to swallow.
