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.

    They finally got around to turning Costner’s Dragonfly into a TV series.

    Good for her. She was actually one of the few characters that actually worked on OTM.

    Great news. How much more awesome can this show’s cast get? Jennifer Ehle, Julie Benz, Margo Martindale and now her? Love them all. Hope the show doesn’t suffer too much from airing on Fridays.

    Ghost Whispering Breasts aside, CBS has had no attention span for shows in the 8pm Friday timeslot for the past thirty years. No matter how good the show might be, don’t get attached to it. OTOH, maybe CBS will forget to cancel it, but nevertheless, don’t get attached to it until, at the very least, CBS forgets to cancel it twice.

    It might not matter how awesome the cast is. I think the vampire/supernatural thing could be on its way out, it’s tiresome. I think there could be a full circle return to stay-home-Friday night. But the shows would have to be good, not vampire/supernatural cr*p. ABC family friday (not abc family channel, the real network) until 9 p.m., then CBS kicks in with Dallas and Falcon Crest! Some network should take a chance and see what happens. Families are gathering around once again, and not in front of the computer. BTW Rachelle Lafevre is an underrated actress. Fan since What About Brian. She’d be a great Pamela Ewing if given the right vehicle.
