Bobby Cannavale Goes Full Fabio in Nine Perfect Strangers This Week

All is not well in Tranquilum. The guests at the mysterious luxury wellness resort—aka the stomping grounds for Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers—came for healing and transformation, but what they got were unnerving drug trips under a suspicious guru (Nicole Kidman’s Masha). And, as we witnessed in the last episode, the hallucinations are only getting more intense.

Bobby Cannavale on ‘Nine Perfect Strangers,’ Playing a Retired Football Player, and the Fight Over His Character’s Beard

Adapted by David E. Kelley and John Henry Butterworth from the book by best-selling author Liane Moriarty (Big Little Lies), the Hulu original series Nine Perfect Strangers follows a group of folks who have left the stress of their lives behind to unwind, as they spend ten days at a health and wellness resort. As part of their retreat, Masha (Nicole Kidman) has promised them a path to mind and body healing, if they give themselves over to her mission, which has more in store for them than they ever could have bargained for. The series also stars Melissa McCarthy, Michael Shannon, Luke Evans, Bobby Cannavale, Regina Hall, Samara Weaving, Melvin Gregg, Asher Keddie, Grace Van Patten, Tiffany Boone and Manny Jacinto.

Nine Perfect Strangers’ Bobby Cannavale On Reteaming With Melissa McCarthy And Finding Humor In Tony’s Desperation

Spoilers below for the first three episodes of Hulu’s Nine Perfect Strangers, so be warned!. Well, you know, one of the things that I was really attracted to in the role, Nick, was that this was a strange dichotomy of a guy who volunteers to be a part of this, and then spends all of his time resisting it. And I thought, 'Well, that's interesting. I don't quite know how you play that.' Of course, the writing was so good. and you know, I had such great scene partners. Of course, all those actors, starting with Melissa. But, you know, in thinking about it and reading the book, and really having a good think about it, I just thought, 'Well, you know what? This guy's at the very end of his rope. So what happens when you're there?' Well, you can go to some pretty dark places. You can present as somebody who really doesn't care. And I think Tony's a guy who knows how to use what he's got — his aggression, his size, his formidable kind of presence — to confront people. And so I think when somebody's that desperate, there's room for funny things to happen, people do funny things when they're desperate. So I thought that there was enough there really to, to, to, to work on and to try to discover why this guy was like this. And then you add, of course, the elements, the big surprise of how he's being treated once he's in there, I thought that that could lead to a lot of fun.

Bobby Cannavale Says He Ends Every Day With a “Full Weep”

Bobby Cannavale says he likes to wind down at the end of a long day with a good book and a “full weep,” but he promises he’s not having an emotional breakdown. In a new interview for InStyle, the actor was asked about his bedtime routine. “I cry my eyes out,” Cannavale confessed. “I have a weird thing where I read in bed, like a lot of people. I read in bed at the end of a long day, kids, blah, blah, blah. I go to bed very early because of the kids. I like to have at least a half an hour to read and the only time I have in the day is then and at 6:00 when I wake up, and when I start to get really tired, I start to cry, uncontrollably. My eyes, they burn. And they just cry.”

Nine Perfect Strangers' Bobby Cannavale on the Series' Unconventional Approach to Wellness

Recent years have seen people going to great and sometimes bizarre lengths in hopes of unlocking their best self, whether that be through the destigmatization of traditional therapy or embracing experimental techniques to better yourself, often resulting in mixed reactions from the general public. The new Hulu series Nine Perfect Strangers, based on the novel from the same name by author Liane Moriarty, focuses on the lengths nine "strangers" go to at a wellness spa in hopes of finding inner peace, and while star Bobby Cannavale is interested in tried-and-true therapeutic methods, we likely shouldn't count on him embracing any of the show's techniques in his personal life. New episodes of Nine Perfect Strangers debut on Hulu on Wednesdays.
