Patrick Wilson stopped by 'Today' (weekdays, 9AM ET on NBC) to talk about his new CBS series 'A Gifted Man' and his character Michael Holt, a cocky, hot-shot surgeon whose ex-wife appears to him as a ghost, inspiring him to give back.
Wilson said it was Holt's complexity that really appealed to him. "I felt like if I was going to do TV, then at least I wanted it to be a real conflicted guy, something I could really find my way around. This guy, on the outside, he's hard-edged and arrogant but I knew he had this other side going on."
The show was originally going to film in Los Angeles, but Wilson wasn't prepared to leave or relocate his young family. CBS moved the entire production to the East coast to accommodate him. Wilson said he was "humbled" their decision.
