Grey's Anatomy star and daytime TV fanatic Chandra Wilson got her game on during her hiatus as one of the inaugural celebrity contestants on The Pyramid, GSN's relaunch of the Dick Clark-hosted game show classic, premiering September 3 at 6/5c. Other stars on tap to help folks earn the $50,000 grand prize include The Office's Oscar Nuñez and Kate Flannery, Community's Yvette Nicole Brown and Danny Pudi, New Girl's Lamorne Morris and Scandal's Joshua Malina. To prepare, Wilson watched Billy Crystal play in classic Pyramid episodes on YouTube. "This version goes back to the Dick Clark look of the show," Wilson says. "It was a blast. I went to the Winner's Circle twice and won!"
Back on the Grey's set, the actress will also be going for the bonus round as Bailey prepares to marry Ben (Jason George). But Wilson, who'll direct the new season's sixth episode, reminds fans that "when Callie got married, Bailey told her, 'I've already done the wedding dress and the church and it didn't work out.' I have a feeling [her wedding] won't be all that traditional." And while I won't spoil how Eric Dane's Mark Sloane exits the series, Wilson says, "They've come up with a really creative send-off for Mark, especially for the die-hard Grey's fans. Eric gets the chance to do some really beautiful stuff in the first two episodes."
