Wolf is one of the cast members of the new ABC series, The Nine, and he says he researched the role by hanging out for a day with a real-life thoracic surgeon.
As he puts it, It was invaluable to see his physical world, especially because my character does open heart surgery in the first episode.
The former Party Of Five star even got to sit in on a surgery but, luckily for the patient, he only observed and didnt do any actual work.
Still, he says it was a humbling experience watching this man save a life, eat a turkey sandwich, than go save another one.
The Nine, which also stars Tim Daly, debuts October 4.
