Cuba Gooding Jr. to Bring His Gifted Hands to TNT

Cuba Gooding Jr. has been tapped to star in TNT's upcoming original movie, Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story. Gooding will play Dr. Ben Carson, whose life story took him from a tough, inner-city childhood to become the director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University Hospital.
