KERR SMITH ('DAWSON'S CREEK') JOINS REGULAR CAST OF NBC'S
'E-RING' AND REPRISES ROLE AS GUNG-HO MEMBER OF SPECIAL OPS TEAM
BURBANK - December 5, 2005 - Kerr Smith ("Dawson's Creek") has joined the regular cast of NBC's freshman drama "E-Ring" (Wednesdays, 8-9 p.m. ET) reprising the role of Bobby Wilkerson, a gung-ho member of the Pentagon's Special Ops team whom Smith has played in three earlier episodes this Fall.
Smith, a native of Pennsylvania, first gained attention for his performance as Jack McPhee in "Dawson's Creek" from 1998-2003. His feature-film credits include the upcoming "Accidental Murder," as well as "The Forsaken," "Hit and Runaway," "Lucid Days in Hell" and "The Broken Hearts Club: A Romantic Comedy."
Among Smith's other television credits are a recurring role as Kyle Brody in "Charmed," and guest-starring appearances in such series as "The Closer," "CSI: Miami" and "Miss Match." Smith's first television work came in the daytime drama "As the World Turns."
In addition, Smith's television movies include "Silver Lake," "and "Critical Assembly."
Smith will continue to portray Wilkerson, who is a close friend of JT (series star Benjamin Bratt) and carries out dangerous missions in secret foreign operations.
Dennis Hopper also stars in the high-octane drama set inside the nation's ultimate fortress: the Pentagon. It's a hub of highly explosive conflicts between American military heroes and the civilians to whom they report -- a world where crises can escalate into life-and-death climaxes for individuals or entire nations. Critical decisions are made by intelligence officers in the war room and executed by covert "Special Ops" on the battlefield that results in a delicate balance between protecting the homeland -- and protecting the life of a lone soldier.
Jerry Bruckheimer Television in association with Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. produces "E-Ring." Thirty-time Emmy nominee Bruckheimer serves as executive producer along with Jonathan Littman ("The Amazing Race," "CSI: NY"), Ken Biller and co-creator David McKenna ("S.W.A.T.," "Blow").
