Part of playing a doctor on TV is giving people terrible news with sincerity and sympathy. Boris Kodjoe, who plays Dr. Will Campbell on Code Black, knows that burden well.
When Kodjoe stopped by EW: The Show, he taught us how to deliver bad news like a TV doctor. But Kodjoe isn’t exactly sharing tragic diagnoses to make his points. “Mrs. McPhee, I’m sorry to have to be the one to say this, but your daughter was caught binge-watching Fueller House.”
Paging Rob Lowe; you’re needed in the EW Instagram feed.
On Wednesday the Code Black actor took over our Instagram story to give a behind-the-scenes tour of the CBS medical drama, which returns for its second season tonight.
Lowe, a newcomer to the cast this season, plays Dr. Ethan Willis, a hotshot military doctor brought into Angels Memorial Hospital to teach the staff cutting-edge trauma techniques.
Rob Lowe joins season 2 of CBS’ Code Black as a spitfire doctor with a military background.
“It’s not uncommon for people in the elite military medical trauma units to be repositioned in some of the big hospitals,” Lowe tells EW of his role. “That’s what my character does.”
Rob Lowe has arrived Angels Memorial Hospital.
On Thursday, CBS released a new trailer for the medical drama’s second season that previews the arrival of The Grinder alum as cowboy military doctor Col. Ethan Willis, who will be stationed at Angels Memorial Hospital to teach the staff new trauma techniques.
The Grinder may never settle a case, but he appears to have settled on a new show.
Rob Lowe, late of Fox comedy The Grinder, has joined the cast of CBS medical drama Code Black, the network announced on Tuesday.
Meagan Good is trading in precogs for patients.
Boris Kodjoe is joining CBS medical drama Code Black in a recurring role as the charmping Dr. Will Campbell, the network announced Friday.
Code Black premiered this past September and follows a group of doctors trying their best to operate in a hospital without enough resources. Marcia Gay Harden, Bonnie Somerville, Raza Jaffrey, Luiz Guzmán, Melanie Chandra, Harry Ford, Benjamin Hollingsworth, and William Allen Young star.
CBS has ordered five more episodes of Code Black, EW has learned.
At the heart of the medical madness on Code Black, which takes place in Los Angeles’ busiest emergency room, is Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden), a tough boss to a new crop of residents who doesn’t always follow protocol in order to save lives. EW talked to Harden about the tricks to playing a doctor.
Before we get into Code Black, a quick rundown of what’s already being covered by recent medical dramas. There’s the longtime fave Grey’s Anatomy, sexy and flashy and never-ending. There’s the clichéd The Night Shift, which revolves around attractive war veterans and, well, the night shift. And in November, Chicago Med will arrive, with its familiar Dick Wolf formula that will satisfy Chicago P.D. and Chicago Fire fans.
