BURBANK, Calif., March 27 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Hal Holbrook is to make a guest appearance on an upcoming episode of the U.S. television medical drama "ER," NBC announced Thursday.

The five-time Emmy Award-winning actor, who was nominated for an Oscar this year for his role in "Into the Wild," will play Walter Perkins, a terminal cancer patient who impacts the life of Dr. Kovac and affects a major decision in his life, the network said.

The episode is scheduled to air April 24.
