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

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 Brenneman
Based 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?

I'm not too crazy for this spinoff...I feel like it will ruin the present Grey's, whether it's bad or good...plus I don't like the idea of Shonda splitting her creativity waves into two, in order to pour into both shows....I need one outstanding show, not two so-so shows....two Grey's running at the same time? And I don't care if the cast is experienced or not; just because they are famous/were on other shows doesn't necessarily mean they would click with the audience/characters themselves...look at Grey's. I know this sounds awful of me, but as a very devoted Greys fan, I'm actually hoping the spinoff won't come through...

Me either. I think it might ruin the whole reality affect with signing on stars that we know already have been on other shows...the best thing about ga is that the cast had not been in the lime light before they were on ga.....these other people have been...i dont know....just sounds like a flop to me....

Oh bummer. That doesn't strike me as a fun cast addition.

I'm still not too thrilled about Addison leaving the regular cast. Sigh. But we'll see how it goes.

I'm loving this new show already!! :) I think that Amy Brenneman would be a good choice to play Addison's sister...if she has one. They look like they could be sisters in real life!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
