Watch the Los Angeles Times' Glenn Whipp interview Andre Holland of "The Knick." (Michelle Maltais)

Andre Holland's character on the period medical drama "The Knick" enjoyed an eventful first season. As one of the country's only black surgeons, Dr. Algernon Edwards battled discrimination from within the ranks of the turn-of-the-century New York hospital and, outside its corridors, was derided by fellow blacks for his education and "fancy clothes." He carried on a clandestine affair with Cornelia Robertson, the hospital's head of board of trustees, which led to all sorts of complications and the good doctor finding himself in a very bad place by season's end.

Holland will be dropping by The Times' studio on Tuesday at 11 a.m. PST to talk about all these things and whether Edwards might catch a break in "The Knick's" upcoming second season. We're guessing from Holland's point of view, the answer to that last question will be: Hopefully not.

We'll also talk a bit about Holland's work in Ava DuVernay's "Selma," in which he played civil rights leader Andrew Young. If you have something you'd like to ask him, leave your question in the comments section or tweet it to us using the hashtag #AskLATimes. See you Tuesday.
