Big Fau and Shakespeare

Big Fau's costume does look a lot like something someone from a Shakespearian play might wear. The skirt (or tutu, it's pretty big...), the boots, the headress, the wristcuffs, and his general apparel kind of point to the fact that he is an actor, acting along side Roger Smith. Unlike Roger Smith, who was sucsessfully able to change his role, Big Fau was the actor who was unable to change his role and seceded to what Angel/Big Venus/ had directed for him.

Heh, I don't know about your last sentence, but Fau is definitely the most hoidy-toidy, maybe even effeminate Big Megadeus, which befits his noble calling.

That last sentence means that Roger sucessfully changed his role. Angel (the Director) chose a role for all the major actors in the Big O. Among these, Roger and Alex. Remember, Gordon Rosewater wondered why there can't be those who can change their roles. He goes on to tell Roger to continue his negotiations [with the director, Angel]. That is why Roger does not get "wiped" at the end when Angel manifests herself as Big Venus. He sucsessfully changes his role, while Alex Rosewater is cast aside, screaming.
