Question: Is Cath's love interest Alan Rosenberg, Marg Helgenberger's real-life husband? — Joanna

Ausiello: Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ding! Ladies and gentleman, we have a winner! Rosenberg, an Emmy nominee for a 1995 guest turn on ER, will play a criminal defense attorney who catches Cath's eye in an episode to air this May. Exec producer Carol Mendelsohn says the role is "possibly recurring," adding, "We joke that it would be funny if the first guy Catherine really kisses on the show is her husband." Funny for everyone but Gary Dourdan. (And, I suspect, Marg Helgenberger.)
