Facinelli will play veterinarian Dr. Lucas Court, "whose bond with his animal patients verges on the uncanny." He'll be working alongside Marsha Thomason's (White Collar) Dr. Kara Marins to pioneer cross-species medicine.
Currently, Facinelli has a recurring guest star role on Supergirl as tech billionaire genius Maxwell Lord. Lord has become Supergirl's greatest human threat in the show's freshman season. If Zoobiquity is picked up to series it may mean that Lord's time in National City may end sooner rather than later.
