‘Once Upon a Time’ Actor David Anders To Recur on ‘Necessary Roughness’

Actor David Anders, best known for his recent recurring role of Dr. Whale (aka Dr. Frankenstein) on ‘Once Upon a Time’ will soon be recurring on the USA Network drama Necessary Roughness when the show returns for its third season later this year.

Hot on the heels of actor John Stamos joining the cast as Connor McClane, as we reported here, Anders will appear as Troy Cutler, the second-in-command to Connor as V3, the world’s premiere sports and talent agency. Having sacrificed his personal life for his career, Troy gets satisfaction getting his hands a little dirty for the company – something that doesn’t sit well with Dr. Dani Santino (series lead Callie Thorne).

Among Anders other TV credits are recurring roles on ‘Alias’, ‘Heroes’, ’24’ and ‘The Vampire Diaries’ as well as guest roles on ‘Arrow’, ‘House’, ‘Warehouse 13’, ‘Lie to Me’ and ‘Grey’s Anatomy’.

‘Necessary Roughness’, created and executive produced by Liz Kruger and Craig Shapiro, is inspired by a true story. It will return to the USA Network later this year.
