In this case, Michael Scialabba will be trading his hammer for a stethoscope. HGTV fans will recognize Michael as Vern Yip’s carpenter on the show Deserving Design. But he’s also a talented actor who completely captured the awkward adorableness of Dr. Stroud, the caring doctor at the senior care facility where the story takes place.
Michael has a goofy charm that will help make the budding romance between Dr. Stroud and nurse Kathy an endearing subplot. And as an added bonus, we will have an extra set of skilled hands on set in case something needs carpentering.
