More Guest Stars Lined Up For Spring Grey's Anatomy Spin-off Episode

by at . Comments

Sources confirm that Alias' Merrin Dungey and Judging Amy's Amy Brenneman (pictured) have joined the cast of the Grey's Anatomy spin-off (or the potential spin-off, as it's being called, beginning with a special two-hour episode of Grey's scheduled for this spring).

Amy BrennemanBased on recent reports from Michael Ausiello of TV Guide, Dungey may be playing a psychiatrist, and Brenneman a fertility specialist or the other way around. It's all speculation at this point, but nonetheless fun to consider.

The hiring of this duo puts to rest speculation that Kate Walsh would find herself surrounded by a mostly-male ensemble - buzz that only intensified with the recent casting of stars Tim Daly and Taye Diggs.

We've also confirmed that Paul Adelstein (Prison Break) and Chris Lowell (Veronica Mars) have been added to the cast.

With Shonda Rhimes at the controls and a cast loaded with experienced, successful actors, it seems to us this thing has a pretty good chance of being picked up as a full series. What do you think?

    Best site. But me many that porno


    is addison such a complex/huge character that she needs her own show? porno god, this sounds like a gold digging consp


    I disliked the pilot. Do not like the known cast. Story is insipid and overly self-indulgent. Let's have some real charaters please


    Hate the spinoff...boring, and I do not like the cast. I love love love Addison though, but i wish she would stay on the original the way, does anyone know who plays the pregnant girl named Lisa? Its driving me nuts!


    I have to disagree, a spin off can be a good thing. Kate Walsh is great! I'm afraid it could take some of the focus out of GA, Addy just adds perkiness to the others. Who will they tell all their naughty little secerts to? But it doesn't mean that Addy cant come back to visit and add her own kind of spice to Ga occasionally! Seriously!!!!!


    sorry about the last comment. i meant wouldnt instead of want.


    i wish addison want leaving the show because she makes it come alive in a way. you know?
