Fall TV Scoop: Off the Map's Rachelle Lefevre Plays Doctor with CBS' Gifted Man
Patrick Wilson stars as Dr. Michael Holt aka the titular surgeon who is as aloof socially as he is gifted professionally. That is, until he starts engaging in meaningful conversations with his ex-wife — make that his dead ex-wife (played by Jennifer Ehle, The King’s Speech).
Lefevre joins the mix as a character not seen in the original pilot: Kate, a doctor who joins up at a family clinica where Michael will find himself spending more and more time, pulled away from his own upscale hospital.
Previously, as Off the Map‘s fate began to seal itself, Lefevre landed a role in The Crossing, an NBC pilot set in a Missouri town during the post-Civil War Reconstruction era; it was not picked up.
