'Body of Proof's' Nicholas Bishop to guest star on USA's 'Necessary Roughness'
USA's new summer series, "Necessary Roughness," is currently shooting in Atlanta, Ga. and we hear that it has picked up some heat with a new guest star.
An USA Network rep confirms that "Body of Proof" star, Nicholas Bishop, is guest starring for one episode in the show's inaugural season.
He plays Griffin Page, a dashing former war correspondent who goes on to host his own cable news show. Page seeks treatment from psychotherapist Dani (played by Callie Thorne) after inexplicably cracking up during a somber report and getting suspended from his job.
"[He's modeled] a bit like an Anderson Cooper or Wolf Blitzer," Bishop tells us of the role. "And he basically has a meltdown at the news desk. It's actually pretty funny and the lead [Thorne] kind of starts working with me to get over my issues and to get me back on the news desk."
"It's a great role and they all seem like a good bunch of people," he adds.
Bishop plays Peter Dunlop on the ABC crime/medical drama starring Dana Delany. The Australian actor has also starred on the short-lived series, "Past Life," on FOX and the Australian soap opera, "Home and Away."
"Necessary Roughness" premieres June 29 on USA. It stars Thorne, a therapist whose life unravels when she finds her husband cheating. She takes on the challenge of rehabilitating a football player ("True Blood's" Mehcad Brooks) whose misbehavior off-the-field threatens his career.
