Warner plays AJ Austin aka The Raptor, a larger-than-life cardio-thoracic surgeon whose uncontrollable personality makes him a grave liability within the hospital walls. Morshower portrays Marshall Winthrop, Conrad’s (Matt Czuchry) estranged father and new chairman of the board at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. Warner and Morshower each appeared in three episodes in Season 1.

Created by Amy Holden Jones, Roshan Sethi and Hayley Schore, and executive produced by Jones, Todd Harthan and Antoine Fuqua, The Resident’s first season centered on a tough, brilliant senior resident (Czuchry) who guides an idealistic young doctor (Manish Dayal) through his first day, pulling back the curtain on what really happens, both good and bad, in modern-day medicine. Season 1 also starred Bruce Greenwood, Emily VanCamp, Moran Atias, Merrin Dungey, Shaunette Renée Wilson and Melina Kanakaredes.
