'ER' Star Scrubs in for 'A Gifted Man,' 'I Hate My Teenage Daughter' Grabs Sexy 'Chuck' Actor & More TV Casting News
According to the Hollywood Reporter, La Salle will play Evan Morrison, a physician who treats people with emotional and behavioral problems. He'll appear in at least four episodes and may direct one episode of the new CBS drama.
The role reunites La Salle and former 'ER' executive producer Neal Baer.
"I have very fond memories of our time together on 'ER' and look forward to having Eriq portray another unforgettable character on 'A Gifted Man,'" Baer told THR.
'A Gifted Man' premieres Fri., Sept. 23, 8PM on CBS.

Our blushing bride and dashing groom were left facing an uncertain future at the episode's conclusion, and at this point, making it to the church on time is the least of our spy team's worries.
Last month, AOL TV was among a number of outlets invited to the 'Chuck' set to interview the cast as they filmed the finale.
Join us after the jump to discover what we learned about next week's climactic finale and what the stars had to say about their loyal fans. (Spoilers ahead.)
No, that isn't a typo; on tonight's 'Chuck' (8PM ET on NBC), titled 'Chuck Vs. Agent X,' Captain Awesome (Ryan McPartlin) throws our titular groom-to-be one hell of a bachelor party, and instead of going the clichéd weekend in Vegas route, Chuck (Zachary Levi) and his cohorts end up celebrating in the peaceful solitude of Las Vecas, a campground that, according to McPartlin, ends up being a little more reminiscent of 'Deliverance' than 'The Hangover'.
But while the guys are embroiled in spy shenanigans, blushing bride Sarah Walker (Yvonne Strahovski) has an equally action-packed encounter with "The Snakes of Toluca Lake" -- we have a feeling she'd rather be out in the woods. For more on Chuck and Sarah's unique bachelor/ette parties, join us after the jump. (Mild spoilers ahead!)
Many 'Chuck' adventures past and present were discussed, but one topic in particular caught my attention: Chuck Bartowski's bachelor party, which will be depicted in the 22nd episode of the season.
"Just like any good 'Chuck' episode, you think you're going one place, but there are little detours" for those attending the bachelor bash, McPartlin said in the press room after the 'Chuck' panel.
What's below is a list of of topics that came up at the 'Chuck' panel and in the press room afterward. I've actually divided the intel into two different bullet-point lists: One has spoilers and one doesn't. Enjoy!
But when Awesome is aghast that Chuck would just lie to Ellie's face, we have to agree with Chuck. "There are some things she's better off not knowing." Watch 'Chuck' Mon., 8PM ET on NBC.

Salivating for the return of 'Chuck' on January 10? Then set your DVR for January 7, because Syfy is planning to air an eight-hour marathon of the cult NBC series.
Creators Josh Schwartz and Chris Fedak have selected their eight "best of" episodes from season 2, including the premiere and the finale, which will air during the marathon.
Still not watching 'Chuck'? We're here to help. Below, check out our 5 reasons to watch Syfy's 'Chuck' marathon.
There are only so many hours of television I can fit in a day, so I'm picky and particular about what I watch. Chuck is one of those shows that I watched early last season, I liked it, but for reasons I can't think of, it didn't make the cut. Seeing as it was good enough and is clearly popular enough to have a second season, with the first season DVDs out in a couple of months, I may have to do some catching up and find a way to fit it in.
This session was great for fans of the show, as the first five minutes or so were filled with a video montage of scenes from next season. I'll describe some of those scenes in my summary below, but I'll start them off with SPOILER in case you don't want to know.
