After eight wonderful seasons, the medical drama Royal Pains took its final bow Wednesday night. USA Network conducted the last-ever interview with the cast, and learned what the stars hope is in store for their beloved characters. Will one of them run for office? Save the world? Let's hope!!
MARK FEUERSTEIN AS HANK LAWSON
What He Hopes Happens Now: "One part of me would love for him to join Doctors Without Borders and travel the world doing good internationally, but one thing I love about the way the writers handle Hank’s promise to his patients -- which he made in episode four of season one -- is that he’d be a Robin Hood of medicine, treating the rich and the not-so-rich alike. He made commitments to people like Don the policeman and Jim the fisherman. Hank ends up back in the Hamptons and I like the notion that he stays and takes care of everyone he ever promised to take care of for the rest of his life there."
Where to See Him Next: Catch Mark in the upcoming reboot of Prison Break, in which he'll play the husband of another USA star, Sarah Wayne Callies!
PAULO COSTANZO AS EVAN LAWSON
What He Hopes Happens Now: "I feel like Evan got into politics for all the wrong reasons in season five when he ran to be a councilman. And when the series ends, he’s grown into a totally different person. I feel like, with his moral compass now in the right place, if he directed his Type-A personality and energy and effort to running for office, I think he could be President of the United States."
Where to See Him Next: Paulo will appear this summer in HBO's new thriller The Night Of.
RESHMA SHETTY AS DIVYA KATEDARE
What She Hopes Happens Now: "I think Divya will become an amazing doctor and will cure cancer."
Where to See Her Next: Reshma is finally a doctor! She'll play Dr. Talaikha Channarayapatra in the upcoming series Pure Genius.
BROOKE D'ORSAY AS PAIGE COLLINS
What She Hopes Happens Now: "I would like to see her fall apart. I think I want to see Paige just, like, get messy and belligerently drunk. She needs a problem! I’d like to see the dark side of Paige!"
Where to See Her Next: Catch Brooke in the film comedy The Five Wives & Lives of Melvyn Pfferberg from across the pond!
BEN SHENKMAN AS JEREMIAH SACANI
What He Hopes Happens Now: "Jeremiah starts a heavy metal band and goes on the road."
Where to See Him Next: Ben joins Paulo as a recurring character in The Night Of this summer on HBO.
HENRY WINKLER AS EDDIE LAWSON
What He Hopes Happens Now: "Eddie is writing his second book now and will go on tour to become the Tony Robbins of the 2000s."
Where to See Him Next: Henry travels to Asia with buddies George Foreman, William Shatner, and Terry Bradshaw in the new show Better Late Than Never, coming to NBC on August 23!
