Would you be willing to have an autopsy performed on you after you’re dead? “When I’m dead, I want Jill Hennessy to perform my autopsy. She’s had a lot of practice. And if not Jill, then at least Miguel Ferrer.”

Why do most medical dramas seem to perform so well? “I think people like to watch little mysteries. I don’t know if our show is a medical show per se. Our show basically starts off with a murder at the beginning of every episode and then becomes an instant story: Now, how are we going to solve it?”

Would you like to see your character given more of a personal life in the show? “The nice thing is we get to do a little more personal stuff than the ‘CSIs.’ They give me a couple girlfriends a year and some sort of emotional arc. As an actor, I think that’s really good.”
