Code Black 2.0 continues to take shape.
The CBS medical drama — which on Friday announced a major Season 2 cast shake-up that saw two actors promoted and another two fired — is adding a male co-lead opposite Marcia Gay Harden, and TVLine has procured intel on the newbie MD.
The character, Colonel David Willis, is a onetime combat doctor who has served three tours in Afghanistan. Described as heroic, blunt, irreverent, and rule-breaking, Willis lands at Angels Memorial to teach the attendings and residents new war-tested techniques. Per the casting notice, he’s a “says-what-he-thinks veteran who doesn’t suffer fools and puts the patient first over all else, including your precious feelings. Possessed with a roguish charm, gallows humor and willingness to take risks, he’s sexy to women and compelling to men.”
