LOS ANGELES — Steve Carell stars in The Patient, a new FX series streaming now on Hulu.
He plays therapist Alan Strauss, who has just lost his wife to cancer and is estranged from his adult children.
“It’s a very complicated family experience that he’s trying to navigate,” Carell tells On The Red Carpet. “And on top of that, he’s kidnapped by a serial killer, which thickens the plot a little!”
His patient Sam, played by Domhnall Gleeson, chains Strauss to a bed and holds him captive in his basement in hopes the good doctor can help quell his serial killer compulsion.
“Sam is a really disturbing, intriguing character that you can relate to at times,” says Domhnall. “You have created someone who does the most horrible things that you judge correctly when you hear the facts. But if you spend time with him, you start caring about him maybe a little bit.”
Joe Weisberg, co-creator of The Patient, says, “You have to think about the everyday things to make them feel real, because everyone has their quirks, interests and obsessions.”
One of Sam’s obsessions? Meal. The show’s creators have come up with some wild concoctions for Sam to feed his hostage. So we had to ask what would be the best meal to watch The Patient. Find out in the video above.
