Morris Chestnut has been tapped for a season-long arc on the Showtime hit Nurse Jackie.

According to Deadline, the veteran actor will play “Ike Prentiss, a new trauma doctor, a former Army medic who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is very good at his job but can learn a lot from Jackie (Edie Falco) about bedside care.”

The site adds that Chestnut will also be doing three studio films back to back. The first is Fox Searchlight’s Kick Ass 2, Universal’s Identity Thief and Sony’s The Hive. He is also in negotiations to play a part in Fox Searchlight’s Baggage Claim, which stars Trey Songz.
