At FOX, Sadowski will play a public defender in "Courtroom K," a drama from "House" executive producer and "Donnie Brasco" writer Paul Attanasio. Sadowksi guest-starred on "House" earlier this season and has also appeared in "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" and "Chuck."Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
