Check out the first photos of James Van Der Beek guest starring on the upcoming MERCY episode "Can We Talk About the Gigantic Elephant in the Ambulance?" airing Wednesday, February 3 on NBC (8-9 p.m. ET)
Here is what Michael Ausiello had to say about Van Der Beek joining the show:
Cocky, womanizing, and manipulative, Dr. West will frequently clash with Sands, Harris, and the nurses. But beneath the alpha-male swagger lies a brilliant MD whose primary goal is to make Mercy Hospital money. The new doc is also hiding a deep, dark secret. Word has it that Van Der Beek could become a series regular if the character clicks.
