In new medical drama series The Resident on FOX takes place at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital. In the series premiere, it’s Dr. Devon Pravesh’s (Manish Dayal) first day as an intern. The idealistic intern is befriended by third-year resident Dr. Conrad Hawkins who has an unconventional approach to treating patients which Chief of Surgery Dr. Randolph Bell (Bruce Greenwood) does not approve of. But Hawkins is onto Bell. He accuses Bell of killing patients and suggest that he become a TV doctor. “You have the looks for it,” Conrad says. (Well they all do, obviously!)
Conrad Hawkins is portrayed by Matt Czuchry (pronounced zoo-crie). He’s known for his roles on The Good Wife (lawyer Cary Agos), Friday Night Lights (Chris Kennedy), Gilmore Girls (Logan Huntzberger), Hack (Jamie Farrel), and Young Americans (Sean McGrail), among others. Fun facts: Czuchry made his TV acting career in 2000 in a Freaks and Geeks episode, and he was a NCAA tennis player and captain of the men’s tennis team at the College of Charleston in South Carolina. The Resident airs Sundays at 10pm on FOX.
