"When I was first approached about this role, I'll be honest, I didn't really get it," Keaton said.

"I don't come from that world and I'm not a doctor.

But the more I learned about this devastating crisis and about the people who are fighting it, I realized that this story is not just about addiction, it's about hope."

Keaton went on to say that he was "humbled" to be a part of the show and to have been given the opportunity to tell Reed's story.
