The Royal Pains Doctor is In!
After starring in several unsuccessful series, Mark Feuerstein can safely say his luck has changed now that he's playing doctor-for-hire Hank Lawson on USA's summer hit Royal Pains, which returns tonight for a second season of fun in the sun.
TVGuide.com: Aaaayyy, how cool is it that Henry Winkler is playing Hank's scam-artist dad?
Feuerstein: Hank's pretty squeaky-clean, so with the addition of Henry Winkler as the father, I feel like Hank gets a little dirt under the fingernails. You see the anger from all the years of abandonment—it all comes out!
TVGuide.com: And then there's a mini-Damages reunion, with both Marcia Gay Harden and Anastasia Griffith joining the cast in recurring roles.
Feuerstein: I loved Damages, so that's very cool. Marcia is playing someone who's enforcing all the rules in the hospital and Anastasia is going to be a great foil for my character, and perhaps there could be some romantic sparks flying.
TVGuide.com: Any other guest stars coming up?
Feuerstein: Have you heard of a wrestler by the name of Big Show? We had a great time together working on this movie we made for the WWE, so I threw out the idea of him coming to Royal Pains.
TVGuide.com: Do you get to show off your wrestling moves?
Feuerstein: I was a New York Private School State Champ, but none of that is going to come into play on Royal Pains. On June 16, I'm going to be hosting WWE's Raw, which will be a great thrill, although my coach from high school will [be annoyed with] me for turning to the other side.
