Miguel Sandoval is getting benched…
The 62-year-old Latino actor, best known for portraying District Attorney Manuel Devalos on the long-running NBC/CBS series Medium, will star in NBC’s single-camera comedy pilot Bad Judge.
Starring Private Practice alum Kate Walsh, the series centers on a hard-living, sexually unapologetic woman whose life on the edge is constantly in balance as she also happens to be a judge in the criminal court system.
Sandoval will portray Judge Connors, her boss on the San Bernardino County bench, who gives her extra work because he believes in her as a judge.
Sandoval’s television credits include appearances on HBO’s Entourage and TNT’s The Closer.
He’ll next appear in an arc on TNT’s Dallas.
