A Gifted Man 2011 Spoilers: Eriq La Salle Talks About New Role On Show Tonight, Complete Preview Of Next Week’s Episode

ER vet Eriq La Salle begins a multi-episode arc tonight on A Gifted Man as Evan “E-Mo” Morris, a top-shelf, neuropsychiatrist and “medical detective” whom Dr. Michael Holt (Patrick Wilson) seeks out for professional and personal reasons. In a recent interview, the actor discussed his new gig and described his character as “a driven, talented guy who I think has found a really nice balance between what he does and how he lives his life.”

La Salle talked about how he joins the show:

“Michael seeks me out because I have a great reputation in New York, and Michael feels, since the return of his ex-wife, that his game has been thrown off in a lot of ways. He brings me in to do an analysis, and because he ends up really respecting my character, Michael invites me to join his practice. I give it a trial run, so we’re able to approach things from not just a neurological point of view but from the psychiatric point of view as well.”
