Mel Gibson joins The Continental cast as Cormac, the one who runs The Continental in New York during the 1970s. Gibson described his character as a “mentor” and “tormentor” to Winston and Charon. He said (via MovieWeb):

“He's kind of like [Winston and Charon’s] mentor, or actually, mentor or tormentor, I'm not sure which. But he's rather a nefarious character who's like a father figure to them, and they perceive him that way when they're young, but as they grow and begin to analyse who he really is, they realise he's probably not the father figure he pretends to be. He's pretty selfish in his own motives, and has used them in an ill way, and I think they're burned by that and they want to get even. Rightly so.”

Mel Gibson is an actor, director, and producer. Gibson produced, directed, and starred in the 1995 film Braveheart, for which he won the Golden Globe Award for Best Director, the Academy Award for Best Director, and the Academy Award for Best Picture. He also directed the 2016 film Hacksaw Ridge, for which he earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Director.
