Mike Vogel takes lead on 'Trauma'

Role recast after pilot for CBS medical drama

Mike Vogel has landed a lead role on CBS' new medical drama "Miami Trauma."

"Trauma," from WBTV and producer Jerry Bruckheimer, is about a team of trauma surgeons in Miami. Vogel will play one of the doctors, a talented, charming and fiercely competitive surgeon with a healthy ego.

The role, which was played in the pilot by Richard Coyle, has been recast.

Vogel has been in high demand following his performance in ABC's "Romeo and Juliet"-esque drama pilot "Empire State" this past season in which he played the male lead.

Vogel, who next appears in the feature "She's Out of My League," is repped by Gersh and manager Geordie Frey.
