Steve Carell

Steve Carell has been announced to star in the upcoming series The Patient. The actor is a veteran of TV, having starred in one of the greatest TV shows of the 2000s, The Office. In The Office, Carell played the role of Michael Scott, an incompetent but caring regional manager of a paper company in Scranton, Pennsylvania. Since then he’s appeared in blockbuster hits like The 40-Year-Old Virgin, Evan Almighty, Date Night, and the Despicable Me movies. He’s also proven his dramatic chops in more serious movies, like Freeheld and The Big Short. In Foxcatcher, he played Du Pont family heir and convicted murderer John du Pont. He currently stars in Netflix’s Space Force. He also recently concluded his tenure in The Morning Show, starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Despite everything that he’s done over the years, The Office remains to be Steve’s most popular role. In an interview he did with his Office co-star Rainn Wilson, Carell talked about the lasting impact of the show and the fans’ continued appreciation for it, years after its series finale. “It’s great that it caught on like it did, because we all felt that it was special when we were doing it. We felt that we were on to something and kind of felt that we got into a bit of a groove as a cast, and the writers were so fantastic. All parts of it just seemed to be firing on all cylinders and it felt special when we were doing it.”

Domhnall Gleeson

Irish actor, director, and screenwriter Domhnall Gleeson is set to appear in The Patient. The actor portrayed Bill Weasley in the Harry Potter movies. He is the son of veteran Irish actor Brendan Gleeson, who also appeared in the Harry Potter franchise as Mad-Eye Moody. In an interview he did with Angelina Jolie for Interview Magazine, Gleeson talked about what it feels like to grow up in the Gleeson household. “That is the best question I’ve ever been asked. What a way to begin. The truth is that I don’t know anything else. I’ve got three brothers; I think all of them are good human beings. There’s this thing that you’re not meant to have too many children—for global warming, it’s bad. But I know lots of crappy people, and I would rather that good people have lots of kids and outnumber the baddies.” Some of the movies Gleeson has appeared in include The Little Stranger, Peter Rabbit, A Futile and Stupid Gesture, Goodbye Christopher Robin, American Made, and Mother! On TV, he’s had roles in Frank of Ireland, Run, and Catastrophe.
