Eriq La Salle, who starred as Dr. Benton on NBC’s ”ER,” is returning to both series television as well as a role set in a fictional hospital.
The actor has booked a multiepisode arc on CBS’ upcoming Patrick Wilson medical drama “A Gifted Man,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. La Salle will recur as neuropsychiatrist Evan Morrison, a physician who treats those with emotional and behavioral disturbances.
Morrison is described as a great medical detective who focuses on the nuances of human behavior. He’ll appear in at least four episodes of the series. The role reunites La Salle with “Gifted Man” executive producer Neal Baer, who also was an EP on “ER.”
