Dr. Taub, is that you?

TVLine can exclusively reveal that House vet Peter Jacobson will guest-star in the Feb. 27 episode of ABC’s The Good Doctor, reuniting him with House creator David Shore.

Jacobson will appear not as a doctor, but as a patient. He’ll play Sal Zacharia, who is brought into the emergency room at San Jose St. Bonaventure Hospital when he’s hit by a car. “An avid sports fan and gambling addict, he’s willing to take a few more chances with his medical care than the team is comfortable with,” according to the character breakdown.

Jacobson is best known to TV audiences for his turn as Dr. Chris Taub on Shore’s previous medical drama House. He scrubbed in during Season 4 and remained a series regular through its eighth and final season, which concluded in 2012.

His five-season stint on the Fox hit was followed by a starring role on the USA Network sci-fi drama Colony (opposite Josh Holloway and Sarah Wayne Callies), and recurring roles on AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead, CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles and Showtime’s Ray Donovan.

Jacobson is the fourth Princeton-Plainsboro alum to visit San Jose St. Bonaventure. Scroll down to see all the House vets who have crossed over to The Good Doctor during its seven-season run.
