NBC ANNOUNCES GOLDEN GLOBE WINNER AND EMMY NOMINEE ANTHONY EDWARDS TO REPRISE HIS ROLE AS DR. MARK GREENE FOR ONE EPISODE OF 'ER' FOR ITS 15TH AND FINAL 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.

"We had hoped to bring back some of "ER's" stars for the final season and think that our loyal fans will enjoy seeing some of the shows most beloved and memorable characters," said executive producer John Wells.

Edwards first appeared in the "ER" pilot and after nearly eight memorable seasons, completed his run in a highly rated episode at the end of the 2001-02 television season.

Edwards has received four Emmy� nominations for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series. He also won three Screen Actor's Guild Awards (Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Drama Series in 1996, Best Ensemble Cast in 1998 and 1999), the Golden Globe Award in 1998 for Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Drama and a People's Choice Award in 1995 for Favorite Male Performer in a New Television Series.

Edwards can next be seen in the feature film "Motherhood" with Uma Thurman. He was most recently in the film "Zodiac," directed by David Fincher. Other recent credits include "Thunderbirds" for Universal, "Northfork" written by the Polish brothers and "Don't Go Breaking My Heart," which he executive produced in association with his production company Aviator Films. The company also produced the NBC television movie, "Borderline," that starred "ER" alumna Sherry Stringfield.

Edwards has appeared in more than 20 features, including his memorable turn as "Goose" in the blockbuster feature "Top Gun." His other feature credits include; "Playing by Heart," "The Client," "Miracle Mile," "Mr. North," "Hawks," "The Sure Thing," "Gotcha," "Revenge of the Nerds," "Heart Like a Wheel," and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High."

Edwards made his film directorial debut with "Charley's Ghost Story," a modern-day Mark Twain adaptation starring Cheech Marin and Linda Fiorentino.

NBC renewed "ER" for a 15th and final season in April. Combining the extraordinary talents of multiple award-winning producer John Wells ("The West Wing" "Third Watch"), best-selling author Michael Crichton ("Jurassic Park") and the creative team at Steven Spielberg's Amblin Television, the venerated series "ER" explores the inner workings of an urban teaching hospital and the critical issues faced by the dedicated physicians and staff of its overburdened emergency room. Currently beginning its 15th season, the highly acclaimed drama series now holds the distinction of being recognized as the most Emmy�-nominated series in the history of television with 122 nominations. Crichton, Wells and Zabel serve as executive producers, along with Christopher Chulack, Joe Sachs and Janine Sherman Barrois.

A winner of the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award, the series has also earned 22 Emmy Awards, including Outstanding Drama Series in 1996, among many accolades. In addition, the cast has been honored with four Screen Actors Guild Awards for Outstanding Ensemble Performance in a Drama Series.

The long-running series stars Maura Tierney ("Diggers," "Welcome to Mooseport,"), Mekhi Phifer ("Dawn of the Dead," "Curb Your Enthusiasm," "8 Mile," "Slow Burn"), Parminder Nagra ("Ella Enchanted," "Bend It Like Beckham"), Linda Cardellini ("Brokeback Mountain, "Scooby-Doo" films, "Grandma's Boy," "Freaks and Geeks"), Scott Grimes ("Band of Brothers," "American Dad," "Party of Five," "Mystery, Alaska"), John Stamos ("A Raisin in the Sun," "Jake in Progress"), David Lyons ("Blue Heelers") and Angela Bassett ("Akeelah and the Bee," "What's Love Got To Do With It").

On staff at County General Hospital are Abby Lockhart (Tierney), a recovering alcoholic trying her best to juggle a demanding residency and motherhood while everything around her seems to be falling apart; Dr. Greg Pratt (Phifer), an attending fighting for the chief spot on the floor as well as for a firm grasp on his love life; Neela Rasgotra (Nagra), a skilled surgical resident committed to growing in her craft as well as in her place on the surgical team; Sam Taggart (Cardellini), a spirited ER nurse who is finally getting some time to explore life and love both in and outside the hospital; Dr. Archie Morris (Grimes), the quirky-yet-talented attending dedicated to his work but constantly distracted by his own world; Tony Gates (Stamos), a paramedic-turned-doctor who has overcome numerous obstacles to take on the rigorous challenges of life in the ER, Dr. Simon Brenner (Lyons) the newest attending physician with a penchant for stirring things up and Dr. Cate Banfield (Bassett) as a tough-as-nails attending physician whose arrival shakes up the ER.

"ER" is a production of Constant c Productions and Amblin Television in association with Warner Bros. Television.
