An upcoming TNT medical drama has cast an actor known for roles in “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” “Spider-Man 2” and a string of other hit movies to star in the pilot, Deadline.com reports.
Alfred Molina will star in the pilot for TNT’s "Chelsea General," the story reports.
The project is based on CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta’s novel "Monday Mornings," and tracks five surgeons as they deal with professional and personal challenges, the story notes.
Molina will play Dr. Harding Hooten, the chief of surgery, who runs a weekly meeting where doctors are either praised for their work or criticized for their mistakes, the piece says.
Actor Bill Irwin from "CSI" has also joined as Dr. Buck Tierney, described as a smug doctor who annoys his colleagues, according to the article.
