Veteran actor Rob Lowe will be a series regular on a CBS drama. The network announced that Lowe has joined “Code Black” as a military doctor.
His character will be introduced in the season two premiere, scheduled to air Wednesday, Sept. 28.
“Lowe will play Colonel Ethan Willis, a doctor in the U.S. Military’s prestigious Combat Casualty Care research program who has been pulled out of a combat hospital in Afghanistan and embedded at Angels Memorial to teach what the military has learned about combat medicine,” the CBS announcement notes. “His aggressive, rule-breaking style is greeted enthusiastically by Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden), but not by all the other doctors.”
Lowe received a Golden Globe nomination earlier this year for Best Actor for his role on the Fox comedy “The Grinder.”
“Code Black” also stars Marcia Gay Harden, Luis Guzman, Melanie Chandra, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, Jillian Murray, Boris Kodjoe and William Allen Young.
