Paging Emma Watson. The Code Black TV show on CBS is casting for a new doctor character, Charlotte Piel, in the second season. Per TV Line she is described as “a former child star of an iconic movie franchise — ‘think Hermione Granger in Harry Potter‘… who gave up acting to go to medical school.” While in residency at Angels Memorial, Charlotte will reportedly fight to be taken seriously by her coworkers. The role is a recurring one with an option to become a series regular.
NYPD Blue‘s Bonnie Somerville and Smash‘s Raza Jaffrey have been cut from the Code Black season two cast. TV Line says the medical series will be bringing on a “fortysomething ex-combat doctor,’Colonel David Willis’ to play opposite Marcia Gay Harden. That character is described as, “… heroic, blunt, irreverent, and rule-breaking, Willis lands at Angels to teach the attendings and residents new war-tested techniques.” Code Black is currently casting for both roles.
