From The Hollywood Reporter comes news that Orlando Bloom has signed on to star as the titular character in the indie "Hitchcockian thriller" The Good Doctor. But is he playing a truly good doctor, or is he actually a terrible doctor, like how Lifetime dramas always describe abusive, murderous spouses as "The Perfect Husband." This summary sheds some light (it's the terrible doctor one):
The script from John Enbom ("Veronica Mars"), described as a Hitchcockian thriller, centers on a frustrated doctor looking to impress his superiors and colleagues. When his 18-year-old patient, admitted for a kidney infection, provides him with the esteem he so craves, the doctor tampers with her treatment so that she'll have to stay at the hospital with him.
[Michael] Pena will play an orderly who discovers the doctor's budding relationship and blackmails him for prescription painkillers. [Troy] Garity is a successful, self-assured doctor, a counterpoint to Bloom. [Courtney] Ford is a woman who has eyes for Bloom's character.
Wait, when did "Hitchcockian" come to mean "Like a particularly convoluted Law & Order: SVU"?
