“Grey’s Anatomy” Alum Joins “Extant”
Jeffrey Dean Morgan will play a future cop and bounty hunter in the second season of Extant, according to a recent statement from CBS.
Morgan’s character is a big drinker, who feels that he has absolutely nothing to lose. However, his life changes when he meets Molly Woods, played by Halle Berry, the astronaut who discovers that she and a stranger may be the the only hope for survival of the human race.
Morgan, of course, is known for his roles in Grey’s Anatomy and Supernatural. He will also be in The History Channel’s miniseries Texas Rising – an eight hour miniseries which highlights the rise of The Texas Rangers, America’s oldest law enforcement organization. That project, which airs later this year, also stars Bill Paxton, Ray Liotta, Thomas Jane and Michael Rappaport, among others.
The actor also stars alongside Robert De Niro, Kate Bosworth and Dave Bautista in the upcoming Bus 657 – director Scott Mann’s crime thriller about a father who conspires to rob a casino in order to pay for his daughter’s medical treatment.
