Dukes of Hazzard‘s Tom Wopat is joining the rookie medical drama as the husband of Martindale’s Rita, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Wopat’s character, Len Sr., is described as a long-distance truck driver who spends most of his time on the road. He nonetheless has a very close relationship with his wife, who serves as Dr. Michael Holt’s right-hand woman, and their son Lenny (the recently cast Aaron Dean Eisenberg).
Father and son are both expected to debut in November.
A Gifted Man airs Fridays at 8/7c, on CBS.
