How fitting that this episode is titled "Longworth's Anatomy." Guest director Randy Zisk has directed a number of episodes of Grey's Anatomy. Zisk has also executive produced Monk, Off the Map, Lois & Clark, and other TV shows.
The scenes at Tampa Tech were filmed at the multi-campus Broward College and Florida Atlantic University. Students, faculty and staff at the adjoining schools were excited for us to film there. We even used FAU's anatomy lab as Tampa Tech's lab.
And speaking of Tampa Tech, almost all the students used in the scenes at the school were hired background extras, though we did have the occasional "looky-loo," who got caught up in the mix of things. That's something you can't help in a shoot this big.
Taylor Cole, who plays Jennifer Starke, has also appeared on CSI: Miami, The Event, Heroes, and Summerland. She also starred in My Secret Girlfriend, along with Sara Fletcher, who plays Erica in this episode.
Callie may have taken the job at Atlanta General, but Kiele Sanchez, who plays her, didn't have to go far. We just redesigned and painted the set of Palm Glade Regional to make it the new hospital.
The body of Peter Osborne was played by a real-life guy, who needed over three hours of prosthetics and latex applied to his body to make him look dead. The make-up was applied by our special effects artist Bill McCoy.
Do you recognize the Dolphin Bar where Daniel and Erica have drinks? We used it as the biker bar in the "Marriage Is Murder" episode from Season 1. It's really a Hollywood Beach staple called McGowan's Bar.
Carlos Sanchez and guest star Jonathan McClain, who plays Zach Ferguson, both worked on the series 24, though not at the same time.
The large research lab that Jim and Carlos walk through wasn't really there; it was produced using a green screen.
The junk yard where Jim and Carlos investigate Peter Osborne's car is a real junk yard. There are several throughout our shooting area. If it looks familiar, it's because we used the same one where we shot Season's 2, "Iron Pipeline." There's nothing like using the real thing, or filming in a real place, whenever you can.
