Peter MacNicol to Play Doctor on Necessary Roughness

by at . Comments

Peter MacNicol is checking in to Necessary Roughness.

The veteran actor (Ally McBeal, Grey's Anatomy, 24, Fairly Legal, Game Change) will appear on three episodes of the USA drama this season, TV Guide confirms, coming on board as Dr. Gunner, Dani's mentor.

MacNicol will debut on the 12th installment of Necessary Roughness Season 2, though it's unclear what brings him back into Dani's life. Perhaps his protege is in need of some counseling herself, considering the recent upheaval with the Hawks and her baby talk with Matt?

Necessary Roughness airs a new episode tomorrow at 10/9c on USA.
