ABC is not officially confirming the news yet, but reliable sources tell me that
Journeyman Kevin McKidd has just signed on the dotted line to join ABC's
Grey's Anatomy for its upcoming season.
Playing a surgeon who arrives at Seattle Grace fresh from a tour of duty in Iraq, McKidd will first be (barely) glimpsed during the two-hour season premiere. McKidd's character, by some accounts, ultimately will play doctor with Cristina, who has been nursing a broken heart and a seriously bruised ego ever since you-know-who
didn't stop talking skedaddled out of Seattle a season ago.
Word of McKidd's possible casting first appeared at EW.com.- Matt Mitovich
