Code Black is getting an infusion of new blood, adding three actors — including a Heroes alum Noah Gray-Cabey — in major recurring roles, TVLine has learned.
Also joining the CBS medical drama’s rejiggered Season 2: Flesh and Bone star Emily Tyra and One Life to Live alum Nafessa Williams. The trio will fill help fill the void left by departing series regulars Bonnie Somerville (Christa) and Raza Jaffrey (Neal).
The 20-year-old Gray-Cabey, who reprised his Heroes role of Micah Sanders in last season’s NBC revival, will portray Elliot Han, a sweet and affable new doctor at Angels, who excelled in school but is completely overwhelmed by the catastrophes that regularly burst through the doors of the busiest ER in the country.
Tyra, meanwhile, has snagged the role of Dr. Noa Kean, a street-smart surfer who sailed to the top of her class at a California university, despite the tough neighborhood she grew up in. Noa is confident and defiant, never pretends to be something she isn’t, and has zero patience for the foolish or the over privileged.
Lastly, Williams — who has a role in Showtime’s forthcoming Twin Peaks continuation — will portray Charlotte Piel, a former child star of an iconic movie franchise who left her acting career to become a doctor instead, now returning to Los Angeles, her adoptive home, to be a resident at Angels Memorial.
Producers are still on the lookout to play the new male co-lead opposite Marcia Gay Harden.
