Ben Rappaport (Mr. Robot) has been cast as a series regular in Zoobiquity, Fox’s light medical procedural pilot written by Bones executive producers Stephen Nathan and Jon Collier and directed by Kevin Bray.
Based on the best-selling book by Dr. Barbara Natterson-Horowitz and Kathryn Bowers, Zoobiquity follows the unlikely pairing of Dr. Kara Martins (Marsha Thomason), a successful, driven cardiologist as she risks career suicide by teaming with Dr. Lucas Cort (Peter Facinelli), a brilliant, socially-challenged veterinarian who relates better to animals than people. They try to put aside their competitive natures to cure the incurable using a unique blend of cross-species medicine that’s never been tried before. Kim Raver co-stars.
Rappaport will play Dr. Henry Lowe, a cardiology resident. Ambitious and always concerned with doing the right thing for his career, he surprisingly bends hospital rules.
Rappaport is currently in production on the second season of USA’s breakout series Mr. Robot where he has been recurring as Ollie Parker. Previously, he recurred for two seasons on the The Good Wife and toplined the NBC comedy Outsourced. He is co-staring on Broadway in Fiddler on the Roof and can be seen in the romantic comedy Stereotypically You. Rappaport is repped by Gersh, Invictus Entertainment and attorney Rick Genow.
