He first gained notoriety for his roles in comedies like The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Anchorman, but he has since provided a number of performances that demonstrate his talent even when he isn’t playing the comic. Steve Carell has since received praise for his work in a brand-new serial killer thriller on Disney+.
A Huge Role
He plays a psychiatrist who is held captive and chained up in a home by a patient who is a serial killer. The Patient is the name of the television program in which Domhnall Gleeson portrays Gene, the aforementioned serial killer, who eventually goes by the name Sam.
There is enough to fit into the show’s 10 episodes, which, with the exception of the finale, run for about 30 minutes. Having recently lost his loving wife to cancer and having an estranged son whose conversion to orthodox Judaism caused family strife, Carell’s Alan is a man with darkness in his history as well. The whole affair unfolds in a sequence of memories and flashbacks.
