You may have seen the dreamy Matt Czuchry as the preppy love interest in “Gilmore Girls”—and how could we forget him as a lawyer on “The Good Wife”?— now he’s celebrating the second season of FOX medical drama “The Resident” where he plays, you guessed it, a doctor!
Which would he rather be, a fake doctor or a fake lawyer? Turns out he’d choose suit over scrubs, “I’m afraid of needles!” he admitted. He also told us an amazing story about one of the show’s viewers.
“We did a show on MALS”, Matt says, a rare condition that causes people to rapidly lose weight among other things, “and I got an email from somebody who had been to three different doctors, and they couldn’t figure out what was going on.” The viewer had lost 25 pounds in 2 months and after watching the show, Matt explained, she looked at her scans again and realized that it was likely that she had this condition.
A doctor okayed her diagnosis, Matt said, she received surgery, and now she’s doing great, “That’s one of the reasons I’m passionate about [the show], because of the stories we tell”, Matt says. He explains, of course, that he doesn’t promote self-diagnosis of this kind (and obviously he’s not a doctor), but we have to admit, this is a totally wild story!
