ER's Goran Visnjic to Play Red Widow Mob Boss

During his nine years on ER, Goran Visnjic spent a lot of time patching up wounds. In his new gig on ABC’s Red Widow, he’s more likely to inflict them.

Four years after hanging up his stethoscope as Dr. Luka Kovac, Visnjic is returning to series regular work on the Alphabet net’s upcoming mob drama, Deadline reports.
