Former TV doctor Eriq La Salle (ER) has been cast in an unnamed role in 20th Century Fox's Wolverine 3, according to Variety. This purported casting follows several other reported castings including Boyd Holbrook and Stephen Merchant for the film, which Newsarama suspects will be tited "Death of Wolverine."
Best known as Dr. Peter Benton in the long-running NBC hospital drama ER, La Salle has appeared in numerous television series like Under the Dome and CSI: Cyber. The Connecticut-born actor has also transitioned behind the camera, directing numerous TV shows including Once Upon a Time and even the DC/Vertigo-based Lucifer.
Wolverine 3 is scheduled for release March 3.
