Actor Dorian Missick — husband of Simone Missick (Judge Lola Carmichael) — played DJ Tailwind Turner on last night’s season finale of the CBS legal drama All Rise.

The episode, titled Dancing at Los Angeles, followed a virtual bench trial presided over by Judge Lola Carmichael (Simone Missick). Judge Carmichael remotely oversaw the trial involving a dispute between two brothers over a stolen car.

Dorian Missick, an emcee and DJ, appeared as DJ Tailwind Turner, his real-life moniker.

Missick narrated Monday night’s coronavirus lockdown-themed episode of the show that explored the subject of social distancing. In the episode, Emily (Jessica Camacho) and Luke (J. Alex Brinson) have a virtual date and DJ Tailwind Turner hosts a virtual house party.

The cast of the series, including Simone Missick, Marg Helgenberger, Wilson Bethel, Jessica Camacho, and J. Alex Brinson, came together to remotely create a virtual episode. A virtually produced episode allowed the cast to avoid breaking social distancing guidelines put in place to control the spread of coronavirus infection.
