Eriq la salle

ER vet Eriq La Salle will be returning to the medical profession via the fall drama A GIFTED MAN. He will play Dr. Evan Morrison, a neuropsychiatrist who is also a great medical detective, focusing on the nuances of human behavior, in multi-episodes of the new CBS medical drama.

A Gifted Man follows surgeon Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson), an exceptional doctor living a materialistic life of luxury thanks to his work-obsessed career and powerful and wealthy patients. But his ordered world is rocked when his ex-wife, Anna (Jennifer Ehle), an idealistic free-clinic doctor and the love of his life, mysteriously appears to him.

While La Salle is best known for the NBC juggernaut ER, he has recently appeared in episodes of Covert Affairs and 24 and appeared in the telefilm Relative Stranger.

A Gifted Man will debut on CBS on September 23 at 8/7c. [Source: The Hollywood Reporter]
