FROM ER TO ELEKTRA

Goran Visjnic

After six seasons saving lives as ER's Dr. Luka Kovac, Croatian native Visjnic, 32, finally needs some rescuing himself. In Elektra he plays a dad who comes under the protection of assassin Jennifer Garner.

ON CONNECTING WITH GARNER The first time we met was in a gym working out our fight scenes. I was really impressed. She was working so many hours and so hard, which makes her look great in every shot.

ON COMIC BOOKS I'm still a big fan. I like [the classic French comic] Asterix. I have at least 100 issues in my house in L.A.

ON MEETING GEORGE CLOONEY It was my third or fourth day of filming ER six years ago. He recognized me as the new guy. He said, "Come on, man, you're going to enjoy yourself. This is a great crew, great cast." I admire him for that because he made my life so much easier. I felt at home. He's a generous guy.

ON ER'S FUTURE I just signed for another year and a half or two. We're running pretty strong, and nobody sees a reason to shut it down. I can tell you that Samantha [Linda Cardellini] and Luka are still together in the season finale. Of course, there's going to be a lot of troubles in that relationship.

ON BEING THE RESIDENT HUNK I wouldn't know about that. If that's the case, it doesn't have anything to do with me. It's genetics. [Thank] my parents.
