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 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

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.


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."
