You can very briefly see me etherize a young woman in this trailer for “The Knick.”

"The Knick" is a new Cinemax show about surgeons on opium in the early 1900s. It stars Clive Owen who does not need mustache in order to act, and was directed by the great Stephen Soderbergh. I hope he never retires.

This show starts on August 8. I will have more to say about the insane series of hooks and levers that were involved in 1900 just to put on a necktie, as well as details on how this whole thing was basically lit by small incandescent bulbs. It’s great. 

Meanwhile, MARRIED returns tonight with episode two, and I think I’m in this episode so you are safe to watch it.
