Empire Falls

This two-part miniseries tells the humorous, poignant story of a declining New England town and its inhabitants, whose lives are deeply influenced by the Knox River and its vacant mills, their class differences, and ghosts of the past. At the center of the story is Miles and his family obligations, especially those concerning his cantankerous father Max and impressionable daughter Tick.

Character Bio

Max Roby photo
Max Roby (Paul Newman)-Miles' disheveled elderly father. Constantly defiant of those around him, Max has no problem saying what he thinks of people, even directly to their faces. He is happy to accept any "handout" (or to take things that he wants) even when it means stealing money from the church. A rascal from an early age, Max has a lifelong affinity for Key West, Florida, where he attempts to visit as often as he can, leaving everyone in the dust. Despite being a vagabond, it's obvious that Max loves his sons and his granddaughter. He is a great deal wiser than people assume him to be. This was Paul Newman's final onscreen role. He is played by Josh Lucas in flashback.
