General Hospital actor moonlights on CBS drama.
General Hospital actor John Lindstrom (Port Charles’ Kevin Collins and Ryan Chamberlain) recently revealed on Instagram that he’s been in New York City filming an episode of CBS’ Bull. His latest post indicated he had finished filming before the city began to shut down due to the Coronavirus pandemic. The actor wrote, “Atzawrap NY! One last look at the Freedom Tower. Thanks to the A-list team at ‘Bull’ for a stellar time. #MichaelWeatherly @freddyrodriguezofficial @mackenziemeehanactor #DennisSmith #BethanyRooney & the 1st rate cast & crew that made it all so easy and nuthin’ but FUN! @bullcbs #bullcbs @generalhospitalabc #gh.” Currently, there is no information on his role or when the episode will air. As Soaps.com recently reported, General Hospital has shut down production due to the Coronavirus. Many other ABC shows have shut down, and other studios are expected to follow suit.
The CBS drama Bull is inspired by the early career of Dr. Phil McGraw, the founder of one of the most prolific trial-consulting firms of all time, who is better known for his daytime talk show, The Dr. Phil Show. The drama stars Michael Weatherly as Dr. Jason Bull, a brilliant, brash, and charming psychologist. Dr. Bull combines psychology, human intuition, and high-tech data to learn what makes jurors, attorneys, witnesses, and the accused tick. His personal life proves trickier to manage, as he strives to live a healthier lifestyle following a heart attack and is expecting a child with his ex-wife. Dr. Bull employs a team of experts at his company Trial Analysis Corporation to shape successful narratives down to the very last detail.
His team includes his former brother-in-law, Benny Colón (Freddy Rodriguez), a lawyer who takes on the role of a defense attorney in the company’s mock trials. Marissa Morgan (Geneva Carr) is a neurolinguistics expert from the Department of Homeland Security who monitors shifting jury reactions in real-time. Former NYPD detective Danielle “Danny” James (Jaime Lee Kirchner) is the firm’s tough but relatable investigator. Taylor Rentzel (Mackenzie Meehan) is an expert in coding and computer hacking. Rounding out the team is Chunk Palmer (Christopher Jackson), a former all-American lineman and stylist, now a law student, who helps clients prepare their look and testimony for trial. In high-stakes trials, Bull’s combination of remarkable insight into human nature and his team creates winning strategies that tip the scales of justice in his clients’ favor. Bull premiered on September 20, 2016 and is now in its fourth season.
Soaps.com will continue to provide updates on Lindstrom’s episode of Bull as they become available.
