J.R. Ramirez is checking into Denver Memorial Hospital…
The 32-year-old Latino actor has landed a recurring role on the CW‘s new dramedy Emily Owens, M.D., according to TVGuide.com.
Ramirez, who rose to acclaim as Eddie Jr. on the series Hacienda Heights, will play AJ, a confident doctor who returns to the hospital after a leave of absence hoping to get his job back. AJ, who was friends with Micah (Michael Rady), also apparently has a bit of a troubledd history in the workplace with Gina Bandari (Necar Zadegan).
Ramirez’s previous television credits include a stint on House of Payne, as well as appearances on GCB and 90210.
He’ll first appear in an episode slated for January.
Emily Owens airs Tuesdays at 9:00 pm ET on the CW.
