Rush Preview: Watch Hunky TV Doc Tom Ellis Geek Out Over Debbie Gibson

For hotshot renegade doctor William P. Rush, the right music can make the whole day better — especially if there's Debbie Gibson in the mix! In a sneak preview from USA's upcoming medical drama, Rush, actor Tom Ellis can't help but bop to the beat of Gibson's "Only In My Dreams" while tooling around town in his Mercedes — however foolish it makes him look.

"You're living in the stone age!" Dr. Rush's sexy assistant Eve (Sarah Habel) chides him over the phone as the physician barrels down an L.A. freeway popping pills, late (again!) to a client meeting.

Once the disheveled doctor arrives at the hotel he uses as a makeshift office, he's forced to contend with even more bitterness from his short-tempered colleague.

"You look like s–t!" Eve fumes, angry at how the day has started for them both. Rush, on the other hand, is oblivious to her efforts to keep their schedule on track. "You look very pretty!" he replies in an effort to win her over.

Watch more from Rush in the video teaser above before the medical drama premieres Thursday, July 17 at 9 p.m. (EST) on USA.
