DJ Qualls Guest Stars on PerceptionDJ Qualls has landed a guest starring role on TNT’s Perception. The dramatic series starring Eric McCormack as Dr. Daniel Pierce will find Qualls playing a tech-savvy FBI agent “who specializes in investigating cyber crimes. When an online social game Caleidoscope becomes the center of a homicide case, Pierce relies on Fleckner to decipher the clues within this virtual world. By digging into a suspect’s online account Fleckner hopes to bring forth evidence that sheds light on a case in which the line between reality and fantasy becomes blurred.”
Qualls can also be seen this season on The CW’s Supernatural. His other credits include Memphis Beat, Scrubs, Lost, Breaking Bad, The Big Bang Theory, and Criminal Minds.
In Perception, McCormack plays Dr. Daniel Pierce, an eccentric neuroscience professor with paranoid schizophrenia who is recruited by the FBI to help solve complex cases. Pierce has an intimate knowledge of human behavior and a masterful understanding of the way the mind works. He also has an uncanny ability to see patterns and look past people’s conscious emotions to see what lies beneath.
Pierce’s mind may be brilliant, but it’s also damaged. He struggles with hallucinations and paranoid delusions brought on by his schizophrenia. Oddly, Daniel considers some of his hallucinations to be a gift. They occasionally allow him to make connections that his conscious mind can’t yet process. At other times, the hallucinations become Daniel’s greatest curse, leading him to behave in irrational, potentially dangerous ways.
Daniel’s mental condition and offbeat manner make it difficult for him to achieve the close friendships and intimate relationships he craves. He’s in his element when solving an intricate puzzle or a coded message. But in unfamiliar situations, he can quickly become overwhelmed, and only his favorite music and a crossword puzzle have the power to make things right again.
