Angela Bassett and Courtney B Vance will be able to spend a lot more time together as they have each inked a deal to appear on the hit NBC series âERâ. According to NBC, Courtney B. Vance, Bassett’s real-life spouse, has taken a recurring role for the NBC drama’s 15th and last season. He’ll be playing the husband of Bassett’s character, a new attending physician at County General. “We are excited to see the on-screen chemistry and emotion this incredibly talented husband and wife team will bring to our show,” executive producer David Zabel says. “Fans are in for a treat, and we couldn’t be more thrilled that they chose ‘ER’ to make their first appearance together.” Vance starred on NBC’s “Law & Order: Criminal Intent” for five seasons, playing Assistant District Attorney Ron Carver.
