Isaiah Washington by Jean Baptiste Lacroix/ WireImage.com
has been booked for a guest-starring role on A&E's
, which premieres this Tuesday at 10 pm/ET. Though details were few at first, I have since uncovered lots more on how the
alum will fit into the episode.
In "The 11th Hour," Washington will play a traditional, well-schooled interventionist who crosses swords with Benjamin Bratt's title character - a recovered addict who has his own "unconventional" ways of helping others - when they both attempt to treat the same girl.
Since parting ways with ABC's
, Washington's only TV appearance has come in the form of a mini-run on NBC's short-lived
. (Well, that and as a newspaper clipping on the Seattle Grace bulletin board. But
let's not go there
.) He also has done the occasional indie.
Other guest-stars on
will include Tate Donovan (
), Annabeth Gish (
), Kathy Baker and Eric Roberts. -
