When most people think of Orlando Bloom, they probably picture a swashbuckler or an amazing archer that could give Hawkeye himself a run for his money.
Me? I’ll always remember him in that one memorable scene, where he was getting the snot kicked out of him by an extra from Braveheart, who might not have been wearing underwear underneath his robes, in Troy.
But who would have thought that Orlando Bloom had it in him, to turn an otherwise soppy hospital drama, into something that resembles ER: Misery?
And for those of you without a means to watch Youtube, here’s a quick synopsis:
Martin Blake (Orlando Bloom) is an ambitious but anxious young doctor, eager to impress his superiors and colleagues: Chief Resident Waylans (Rob Morrow), self-assured fellow intern Dan (Troy Garity) and no-nonsense nurse Theresa (Taraji P. Henson).
But things are not going Martin’s way and he can’t seem to shake off his insecurities. When 18-year-old patient Diane (Riley Keough) is admitted for a kidney infection, Martin steps in, getting the much-needed boost of self-esteem he craves.
But things take a dark turn as his enthusiasm begins to become an obsession.
The Good Doctor releases this year, August.
