Academy Award-nominated actor George Segal ( Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?) will soon be visiting Oceanside Wellness - as a guest star on ABC's Private Practice. Segal has been cast as the grandfather of receptionist/midwife William "Dell" Parker (played by Chris Lowell).

Segal's episode is currently in production, so even with the writers' strike, Private Practice viewers should be seeing it this season. - Reporting by Stephen Battaglio
