Thursday marks the return of Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) to ER (10 pm/ET, NBC), which raises at least one tricky question. Like: Didn't that character die? Don't worry, Greene isn't returning spectrally to haunt his former place of employment. The episode, titled "Heal Thyself," is a flashback to approximately six years ago, when Dr. Cate Banfield (Angela Bassett), County General's current chief resident, first came to the ER: as the mother of one of Dr. Greene's patients. For Edwards, not only did he agree with the producers' creative vision for Greene's return during ER's 15th, and final season, it gave him an opportunity to spotlight his philanthropy with Shoe4Africa, a nonprofit organization that uses sports, specifically sneakers, to promote health and disease prevention in Africa. Edwards, an avid runner, took some time to tell us why he agreed to don Greene's scrubs again, reuniting with his former castmates and whether he sees another TV series in his future.
