On Royal Pains, an intense Hollywood method actor named Cole Chapman Smith wants to shadow Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein, What Women Want) to prepare him for his next big role. Hilariousness ensues. And yes, he drives Hank crazy.
The intense dramatic actor is portrayed by British actor Ed Weeks. He’s best known for his role as Dr, Jeremy Reed on The Mindy Project. But if you want to see another side of Weeks — one where he’s not pretending to be a doctor — check out the indie film 3rd Street Blackout with Janeane Garofalo. The romantic comedy was recently shown at the 2015 LA Film Fest. Royal Pains airs Tuesdays at 10pm on USA.
