‘Crossing Jordan’ Cast Member Crossing Over To Director’s Chair

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Crossing Jordan is giving one of its cast members a chance to cross over to the director’s chair.

Actor Miguel Ferrer – who plays Dr. Garret Macy on the NBC drama – recently got a chance to try his hand at directing an episode and says it was the result of four years of hard work.

That’s how long Ferrer has been begging producers for the chance, but the extra time he spent pleading was a good thing because when the opportunity finally came he “...had an enormous amount of support from cast and crew. You spend hours every day with these people and they become closer than family.”

Directing isn’t easy but Ferrer says he found it quite relaxing.

However, he admits he’s more anxious about it now than before he did it. In his words, “As soon as I finished the episode, the first thing I wanted to do was direct again so that I wouldn’t forget what I learned.”

Ferrer’s directorial debut airs March 20.
