Guy Pearce as Ebenezer Scrooge | A Christmas Carol on FX
FX’s A Christmas Carol
On Christmas Eve we meet "Ebenezer Scrooge," portrayed by Guy Pearce. A skinflint, he’s isolated, begrudging and resentful of the world. He is aloof and miserable, always testing humanity to find the worst in people and to ratify his own confirmation bias. All the friendships he had in the world he has lost. The hope and optimism he had as a child have been shattered by a brutal upbringing. Can the advent of his business partner Marley and the arrival of the three ghosts reinvigorate the spirit, joy and hope of a once-lost boy?

His guilt haunts him. He wishes to repent. He is sent on a journey of the soul – but to guarantee the safety of his – he must also save Scrooge’s.
