Tony Shalhoub Joins ‘Nurse Jackie’s’ Seventh Season

Emmy Award-winner Tony Shalhoub (“Monk”) joins Emmy-winning actress Edie Falco in “Nurse Jackie,” the Showtime comedy about a flawed emergency room nurse. Shalhoub stars in a recurring role as Dr. Bernard Prince, a new ER doctor who has a great bedside manner, a special touch with his boss, Gloria Akalitus (Anna Deavere Smith), and who offers Jackie something she desperately needs – a friend.

“Nurse Jackie” also stars Merritt Wever, Dominic Fumusa, Paul Schulze, Betty Gilpin, Ruby Jerins, Stephen Wallem, Mackenzie Aladjem and Peter Facinelli. Clyde Phillips serves as showrunner and executive producer. Tom Straw, Richie Jackson, Liz Flahive and Caryn Mandabach also executive produce. “Nurse Jackie” is a co-production between Showtime and Lionsgate.

Best known to television audiences as the obsessive-compulsive detective Adrian Monk, in “Monk,” a role which earned him four straight Emmy nominations and three wins, Tony Shalhoub has been starring in hit television and movie projects for years, including the long-running sitcom “Wings,” and “Men in Black” and “Men in Black II.”

Other film appearances include Stanley Tucci’s hit “Big Night,” “Made Up,” “Barton Fink,” “Cars” and “Cars II,” and the current “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.” Shalhoub also has an extensive list of credits and accolades on Broadway, including Tony Award nominations for “Act One,” “Golden Boy,” “Lend Me a Tenor,” “Conversations with My Father,” “The Heidi Chronicles” and “The Odd Couple.”
