Why Sam Fortner From The Patient Looks So Familiar


Before starring in “The Patient,” Domhnall Gleeson’s took on another television role in the Amazon Prime series “Frank of Ireland,” which sees him returning to his Dublin roots with brother Brian Gleeson, who also plays the show’s titular star.

“‘Frank of Ireland’ is a physical and ridiculous brand of humor with an original twist,” a description reads online (via Merman). “Frank Marron, a 32-year-old catastrophe; a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who’s convinced that the world owes him … is newly single and still lives at home with his mother, Mary (Pom Boyd),” the description adds. “He’s a self-proclaimed musician with a tenuous hold on reality, and hasn’t written a song or played a gig in years. … Luckily, Frank has a loyal best friend, Doofus (Gleeson) whose full-time job is clearing the debris left in Frank’s wake.”

In addition to starring in “Frank of Ireland,” Gleeson and his brother Brian also wrote and created the series. “We’d done a play, and we’d done a couple of short films before that were funny. And we really enjoy trying to be funny together,” Gleeson told Looper in April 2021. “I had written all these sketches with Michael Moloney, a fantastic writer who I’ve known since I was a kid, basically. We decided the three of us should see if we could come up with something, and the thing that we came up with was this character of Frank.”
