It's a regular '90s block party over on the set of Ringer right now. ER star Eriq La Salle has stepped behind the camera to direct an episode of the series starring Sarah Michelle Gellar.

The erstwhile Dr. Peter Benton also directed a few eps of ER back in the day, but he's set to make an on-screen comeback this fall in another medical procedural, CBS's new series A Gifted Man, starring another TV doc, Patrick Wilson (House).

Eriq may also direct a few episodes of A Gifted Man, but for now he's busy helping SMG craft her flashbacking dual roles on Ringer. Busy guy! We hope he's appreciative of his break from playing doctor.

Ringer premieres Thursday, Sept. 13 at 9 p.m. on The CW.
