NBC appeals to the heartstrings of ER fans—and reminds the rest of us that the thing is still on the air—by announcing that it will bring back Anthony Edwards for one episode of the we-swear-this-is-the-last season:
BURBANK – September 4, 2008 — NBC announced that Golden Globe winner and Emmy® nominee Anthony Edwards will reprise his role as Dr. Mark Greene for one episode of NBC’s long running show “ER” (Thursdays, 10-11 p.m. ET/PT). Edwards will return in the episode entitled “Heal Thyself,” which was written and directed by executive producer David Zabel, and will air on November 13, 2008.
The installment will feature Dr. Greene in a series of newly shot scenes that will feature other characters from the show’s past while also giving insight into Dr. Banfield’s (Angela Bassett) past and her experiences within the walls of County General.
