Keith Robinson on "ER" (2001)

Back in 2001, Keith Robinson (Joel, Lightspeed) made three guest appearances on the hit medical drama "ER" during its seventh season. Robinson played William White, a college student hoping to get into medical school. He first appears in the episode "A Walk in the Woods." When William never even gets an interview, he seeks out Dr. Peter Benton (series regular Eriq La Salle) who takes him under his wing in an attempt to help him get in, after Benton discovers that he had lower test scores than William but was accepted to fill a racial quota. This entry features screencaps from all three of Robinson's episodes, given that he only appeared in one scene in both his first and last episodes. The bulk of his role comes in his second appearance during the episode "The Crossing," where Dr. Benton forces William to tag along on his rotation so he can get a feel for the emergency room, which William appears reluctant to take on after spending time with real patients in life and death situations. In his last scene in the episode "Sailing Away," he thanks Dr. Benton for helping him get into medical school.
