'Nurse Jackie' Books Tony Shalhoub for Season 7
Tony Shalhoub is returning to cable.
Shalhoub, whose last TV role was on CBS' short-lived comedy We Are Men, will play Dr. Bernard Prince, a new ER doctor with a great bedside manner and a special touch with the always prickly Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith), and a friend to Edie Falco's titular Jackie.
The role marks Shalhoub's return to cable after his three-time Emmy-winning role as the obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk. His credits include Wings, Men in Black, TMNT and Broadway's Act One, Conversations With My Father, The Odd Couple and more. He's repped by ICM Partners.
