Written and directed by Jonathan Levine, the project is in the vein of USA’s Royal Pains, as it follows an on-call doctor.
It centers on Dr. William Rush (portrayed by Tony Ellis) who is not your average on-call doctor — he’s not attached to any hospital, he’s highly discreet no matter what the ailment as long as the client can pay his cash-only premium and the doctor can party with the best of them.
The Coach Carter star will portrayManny Maquis, a well-connected dealer, who considers Rush a friend, as well as a client.
Gonzalez’s most recent credits include co-starring in Lady Gaga’s “Judas” music video, a guest-starring role on NCIS and a starring role on the CW series Reaper.
He may have recently portrayed Jesus in Lady Gaga‘s music video for “Judas”… But now Rick Gonzalez is preparing to go bad.
The 32-year-old half-Dominican/half-Puerto Rican actor has joined the cast of NBC’s drama pilot Bad Girls.
Adapted from the long-running U.K. series of the same name, the project follows the ins and outs of a group of unlikely women in a federal prison: a scandalous female warden, her new protégé and a host of inmates — some mothers, some friends — who struggle with loyalties to people on the inside and outside.
Gonzalez, best known for his role as Timo Cruz in the movie Coach Carter, will play a hot, tattooed ex gang-banger who is now a correctional officer at the women’s prison and the object of lust among the female inmates.
