Bad Samaritan centers on a valet (Robert Sheehan) who burglarizes the homes of various rich customers. His plan goes awry after visiting a customer’s (David Tennant) home only to find a woman (Kerry Condon) being held captive in the residence. When the valet decides to do the right thing and call in the crime, his good deed doesn’t go unpunished!
“I just got this script and I just thought this is an amazing set-up, a bonkers story, and a bonkers character,” said Tennant. “I just jumped at the chance, really. I wasn’t specifically angling to play a psychotic monster but there is something rather delicious about exploring those darker corners of the human psyche.”
