UPDATED: A hard-partying doctor is heading to Chicago Med. Dominic Rains (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.) is set as a recurring with the possibility of becoming a series regular on the upcoming fifth season of NBC’s hit drama series.
Rains will play Dr. Crockett Marcel, Chicago Med’s newest ED doctor who hails from Louisiana. He gambles, drinks and parties all night but hooks himself to an IV drip in the morning to slide into work like a true badass.
From Emmy-winning executive producer Dick Wolf, Chicago Med follows the emotional day-to-day chaos of the city’s newest state-of-the-art trauma center and into the lives of the courageous doctors, nurses and staff who hold it all together. Nick Gehlfuss, Torrey DeVitto, Colin Donnell, Norma Kuhling, Oliver Platt, Brian Tee and S. Epatha Merkerson star.
Wolf, Diane Frolov, Andrew Schneider, Derek Haas, Michael Waxman, Arthur Forney, Matt Olmstead, Michael Brandt and Peter Jankowski are executive producers.
Managed by Grandview, ICM and Morris Yorn, Rains most recently recurred as Kasius on Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D and starred in the indie cult classic A Girl Walks Home Alone At Night.
Chicago Med is produced by Universal Television and Wolf Entertainment.
