Paul Rudd Is Unrecognizable In Apple TV+ Series ‘The Shrink Next Door
The Apple TV Plus limited series ‘The Shrink Next Door’ has recently released a few pics from the sets and it got everyone’s attention. The ageless Paul Rudd is simply unrecognizable in the set photos. What makes the picture more appealing is the fact that 52-years-old Paul Rudd looks not more than 32-years-old. Take a look at the picture.
Did you notice him? He has a stark white head of hair with a receding hairline. The bulky physique giving him a never-look-before avatar as he always has a lean and wiry frame. The metallic spectacles and salt and pepper beard complete the look. And no matter how many times you stare at the pic for answers, you will not gonna find Paul Rudd in his shrink disguise.
Apple TV Plus finally grabbled the film’s rights of ‘The Shrink Next Door’ as many other streaming services were looking for this too. It will be a straight adaption of Wondery and Bloomberg Media podcast of the same name that ranked on Apple’s podcast chart for more than 3 weeks.
“The Shrink Next Door” Is Based On Real Story
The web series “The Shrink Next Door” is based on the true story of a psychiatrist to celebs who took advantage of his proximity to well-known people, courtesy of his profession, for personal gain. Paul Rudd is playing the shrink Dr. Isaac “Ike” Herschkopf, who slowly and very shrewdly takes over the home and business of his long-time patient Martin Markowitz, played by Will Ferrell.
The narrative depicts how a relationship that should be based on trust and integrity is marred by malicious manipulation, greed, and outright exploitation. The shrink in the real-life story has been MIA and has not been caught yet.
The eight-episode limited series also feature Kathryn Hahn, who impressed everyone with her recent turn as Agatha Harkness in Marvel and Disney Plus show, WandaVision.
The Shrink Next Door is being directed by Michael Showalter (The Lovebirds). While the original podcast was written by Joe Nocera, it has been adapted for the screen by Georgia Pritchett.
The synopsis states that it is all about “one therapist’s psychological manipulation as he crossed lines and defrauded his patients—and he’s still out there.”
