LOS ANGELES (CBS) – Rob Lowe has jointed the cast of the medical drama “Code Black” as a series regular. His character will be introduced in the series’ second season premiere, Wednesday night from 9- 10 p.m. Denver time.
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.
His aggressive, rule-breaking style is greeted enthusiastically by Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden), but not by all the other doctors.
