McDreamy, McVet and... McDonald?
The Insider has learned that McDreamy, McSteamy and McVet are about to get some competition from another studly character.

That's right, a new hunk is joining the cast of Grey’s Anatomy in January. Although the character’s name is Ronald, he’ll be referred to by women on the popular nighttime soap as "McDonald."

McDonald sports bright red hair and a pale complexion, and will be hired by Dr. Webber as Seattle Grace's newest cardio-thoracic surgeon. He will give McDreamy and McSteamy a run for their money, but primarily because of his sense of humor.

"McDonald isn’t traditionally good looking, but he’s really funny and he’s great with kids, which are very sexy qualities to a lot of women," said creator Shonda Rhimes. "McSteamy and McDreamy will dismiss Ronald as a ‘clown’ at first, but they’ll soon learn he’s serious competition for the attention of the women at Grace Hospital."

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)
