After trying to keep Gilmore Girls' Lorelai and Luke apart, this is gonna be a cakewalk. Sources confirm that David Sutcliffe is being added to the cast of Private Practice as a love interest for - but of course - Kate Walsh's mantrap, Addison.

What's that, you say? "But Addison is already pretty flirty with Tim Daly's Doc Wilder"?

Yeah, don't expect things to go smoothly there. But for Sutcliffe, at least, the gig ought to be a breeze. Whereas GG's L&L had a legion of supporters already in place when his Christopher eloped with his on-again/off-again Girl-friend, Addison and Pete have scarcely begun their mating dance.

So what do you think, gang? Do you predict fireworks between Sutcliffe and Walsh... or just a wee sparkle? If it's the latter, be nice. I think after the beating he took from Gilmore fans last season, the guy's been through enough. - Additional reporting by Ben Katner
