Sometimes we have the odd situation where an actor appears in two prime time series at the same time, often while they’re on the way out of one and a new series is debuting. Here are some examples from this season:
- Abraham Benrubi finished his run as “Jerry” on ER while starting a role as “Ben” in Men in Trees.
- Sara Gilbert has minor roles on both ER and the new sitcom The Class.
- Sally Field started the season reprising her occassional role on ER and is in the cast of the new ensemble drama Brothers & Sisters.
Odd how ER is one rung of all three ladders. Other examples?
