Rob Lowe joins medical TV drama Code Black

Rob Lowe joins medical TV drama Code Black

Rob Lowe’s new sitcom, The Grinder, was recently cancelled after just one season. But having been Robbed of a job, the actor is trying not to stay too Lowe. In fact, he’s already signed up for his next gig: he’ll be joining CBS medical drama Code Black.

Set in a hectic LA emergency room, Code Black debuted in September 2015. Lowe will pop up in Season 2 of the TV show, where he’ll play Col. Ethan Willis, a doctor in the Army's prestigious Combat Casualty Care research program.

The colonel is ostensibly there to teach the staff about combat medicine – but this being network drama, we can surely expect fireworks, as Lowe himself seemed to imply with this Instagram post captioned, "Very exciting news coming. Stay tuned".

Lowe joins a cast that includes Marcia Gay Harden, Raza Jaffrey, and Bonnie Somerville. The actor is no stranger to TV, of course, having starred in six seasons of NBC sitcom Parks & Recreation and five seasons of The West Wing.
