Joel McHale, who plays the abusive chef David Fields, explains his character’s confrontation with Carmy during The Bear season 3 ending.



In an interview with GQ, McHale explained his character’s confrontation with Carmy at the end of season 3:


The fact that David’s like, “Hey, man, what are you so worried about? Unclutch your pearls. You shouldn’t be so upset about all this stuff. You did it. You got there” is deeply unfair on David’s part. He approves of him because it worked out. But there are probably so many chefs that didn’t achieve the same thing. Obviously, Jeremy’s character is extremely skilled, and has worked his ass off, but he’s just like everybody in every profession—he had to have some luck. So the piles of other sous chefs and line cooks that worked for David who didn’t make it? You forget about those people. So I think it’s unfair, because he didn’t have to be a dick, but he was, and that’s how he is, and that’s what worked for him.

And obviously, I’m more than happy to show that up and exploit it as an actor playing that part, because people keep telling me, “You’re such a dick in it.” And I’m like, “You mean I’m the protagonist? Because I really spurred him on.” For David, it all comes down to what Jeremy’s character pulled off and ended up doing with his life. And David thinks, “I’m in his brain.” He takes credit for the success. I mean, I played it that way. But I think the psychology fucked up. I think the conclusion is a little rough, if we’re just talking about David’s psychology.
