Ever recognize a guest star on a show from some other project and then spend the next five minutes trying to remember where you saw him or her? Let us shine the light on the thespians in tonight’s episode so you won’t be distracted — starting with the pivotal character of Dr. Perkins.
James Tupper rose to prominence through his starring role on Men in Trees and, incidentally, became romantically involved with co-star Anne Heche. The two have a son together. His next starring role was in hospital drama Mercy, which met an early demise last season. He reportedly lived on a coffee farm in East Africa after high school and enjoys birdwatching and carpentry. (A true renaissance man if we’ve ever heard one.)
Ashley Crow, who will play Linda, has guest-starred on many television shows but is arguably best known for playing Sandra Bennet, Claire’s mom on Heroes. She’s married to Matthew John Armstrong, who played Ted Sprague in Heroes’ first season.
Walter Perez played Bobby “Bull” Reyes in five episodes of Friday Night Lights and was recently seen big-screen remake of Fame (though the actor himself may still be waiting for his own slice of fame). He’ll play Russ in this episode.
Chuck Hittinger, who will portray Mitch tonight, guest-starred on Pretty Little Liars this summer and had a recurring role in JONAS. He also starred in the schlocky, straight-to-video horror flick Boogeyman 3.
Camille Chen, playing Kerry tonight, was last seen on sister show Private Practice and also played Samantha on Aaron Sorkin’s short-lived, SNL-based drama Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip.
