In an already dysfunctional family where the mother suffers from dissociative identity disorder and has at least two additional personalities that emerge when she's under stress, the blue collar husband and their two teenagers have to make a lot of adjustments.
Toni Collette (born November 1, 1972) is an Academy Award-nominated Australian actress best known for ...
Buck is the only male personality we have seen. He is a loud and profane troublemaker, characterized by Collette as "the aggressive protector type, a man's man". He explains his lack of a penis by claiming that it was shot off in the Vietnam War. (Coincidentally, Vietnam veterans often suffer from post traumatic stress disorder, which DID is a subset of.) Buck has a gun named Persephone and often goes to the shooting range with Max and Marshall. Collette said that Buck is her favorite of the original four personalities "just because he's most challenging", though she has to "always be careful not to make him a stereotype." Unlike Tara and other alters, Buck is left-handed. He is a heavy drinker and smoker. He wears large glasses and a trucker hat. Buck is loudly attracted to women, hitting on Kate's friends and claiming to have had sex with a waitress at the local bowling alley, who gave him crabs.
