According to TV Guide, Michael Madsen has booked a two-episode arc that will begin with episode nine. Thus far, FOX hasn’t ordered any episodes beyond the initial baker’s dozen.
His role is described this way:
Madsen will play Russell King, a veteran criminal whose crimes require a certain flair and professional expertise. On the night of a big job, King has a flare-up of back pain and discovers he requires immediate surgery.
In addition, Jennifer Beals will appear in at least three episodes beginning in late November. She’ll play a former call girl who used to date Constantine Alexander (William Forsythe) before he went to prison. She’s now married to a mafia boss who runs Chicago’s North Side.
The Mob Doctor returns to FOX on Monday, November 5th.
