Post 'Miranda', Tom Ellis heading to Los Angeles for USA's 'Rush'

Jessica Brown-Findlay recently discovered that Jamaica Inn is not next door to Downton Abbey. Kevin Doyle found out it’s actually more fun to give orders on The Crimson Field than take them from Mr. Carson in Downton Abbey. Now, you have Tom Ellis, who is finding that his new role in the upcoming USA Network series, Rush, is light-years away from his character of Gary Preston, Miranda Hart’s love interest on the situation comedy, Miranda.

When you’re the best doctor money can buy, you just need to make sure you don’t sell your soul…

In Rush, Ellis stars as Dr. William Rush, a first-class Harvard graduate and once-successful ER doctor whose addiction to pills and other drugs leads him to set up alone as a bad boy doctor-for-hire. My thought is that this is definitely not the type that Miranda and Stevie would be chasing after. Ellis, who became a name and face with as the dashing Dr Oliver Cousins in EastEnders said, “He’s not a bad guy… he just does bad things sometimes. It’s set in Los Angeles so, medically we’ll see it all. He doesn’t say no to any clients, as long as they can pay his fee.

No broadcast date as to yet on USA Network, but word is that it will be in the next several months.
