Actor Mark Valley to Spice Things Up on ‘Body of Proof’

Harry's Law Search and Seize

Actor Mark Valley, best known for his recent work on ‘Human Target’ and ‘Harry’s Law’, is in final negotiations to join the cast of the ABC medical drama Body of Proof.

According to Deadline, Valley will play Det. Tommy Sullivan, a former NYPD detective who has transferred to Philadelphia to attempt to rekindle his relationship with Dr. Megan Hunt (series regular Dana Delany). It seems they broke up 20 years earlier due to the fact he cheated on her.

This character will be one of two new regulars joining the show after three of the regular cast were not picked up for the new season, including actors Nicholas Bishop and John Carroll Lynch and actress Sonja Sohn.

Among Valley’s other TV credits are the short-lived ‘Keen Eddie’, ‘Boston Legal’, ‘Fringe’, ‘ER’, ‘Pasadena’ and ‘Once and Again’. He also appeared in the box office film ‘The Siege’ and provided his voice for the animated film ‘Shrek the Third’.

‘Body of Proof’ will be back for its third season on ABC at some point mid-season.
