TVLine has learned that Hickey, who won his Tony this year for The Normal Heart and currently plays Sean on Showtime’s The Big C, will guest-star on the Eye’s supernatural-tinged medical drama as Ben, an upscale limo driver for an elite car service.
Ben has a condition that causes him to break into uncontrollable fits of rage that dissipate almost as quickly as they arrived, and what’s more he also is hiding a terrible secret. It is when he brings his son into the late(-ish) Anna’s Clinica Sonando that he decides he needs to be treated himself.
Hickey’s other TV credits include guest gigs on The Good Wife, In Plain Sight and original Law & Order.
Now in its second week, A Gifted Man airs Fridays at 8.7c.
