Domhnall Gleeson Joins Steve Carell in FX Limited Series ‘The Patient’

Domhnall Gleeson will star opposite Steve Carell in the upcoming FX limited series “The Patient”.

In addition, Linda Emond, Laura Niemi and Andrew Leeds have also joined the cast of the show. Chris Long has come on board as an executive producer and will also direct the first two episodes. Kevin Bray and Gwyneth Horder-Payton will also direct episodes of the 10-episode series.

In the half-hour series, a psychotherapist (Carell) is held captive by a serial killer (Gleeson) with an unusual request: to curb his homicidal tendencies. But calming this man’s mind while coping with the waves of his own repressed problems sets in on a journey that is perhaps as treacherous as his captivity.

“The Patient” was originally ordered for series on FX in October. Joel Fields and Joe Weisberg will write and executive produce the series, and Carell will executive produce in addition to starring. Caroline Moore and Victor Hsu will also executive produce along with Long. The show is produced by FX Productions.

Gleeson’s recent TV credits include “Frank of Ireland” and “Run.” He also co-produced and wrote “Frank of Ireland” with Michael Moloney and his brother, Brian Gleeson. He will also appear in the HBO series “White House Plumbers,” which tells the story of the masterminds behind the Watergate burglary during Richard Nixon’s presidency. On the film side, he is known for his role as General Hux in the new “Star Wars” trilogy and for projects such as “The Kitchen”, “The Little Stranger”, “American Made”, “Ex Machina” and “The Revenant”. . .”
