So how did Malek get into the head space of someone on those drugs?

Simple, he took them himself.

“I basically asked Sam Esmail, the writer and creator of the show, and now director of the second season, which drugs Elliot was going to do throughout all the seasons and I just started to do whatever he did,” he said.

When asked if he was aware that they were live and his admission couldn’t be cut from the record he answered, “Yeah, that’s what I did.”
