Phil Bushey

Played by: Nicholas Strong The book: Phil goes by "Chef" and is the strung-out meth cook (and meth smoker) who hides out at the Christian radio station and has mostly forgotten about wife Sammy and baby Little Walter. The show: Phil appears to be a huge departure from the book -- we don't think he's a strung-out meth-head, for one. He also has a brother-sister relationship with Dodee, who works at the radio station with him.CBS
