Melissa George to Play Spoiler For Callie-Erica?

by at . Comments

The relationship between Callie and Erica took a back seat for much of this week's premiere, but the exchange at the end hinted at good things to come.

That is, unless a certain ex-Alias vixen has something to say about it.

Melissa George is in final negotiations to join the Grey's Anatomy cast as an intern with, an, um open mind. Or so Entertainment Weekly reports.

Melissa George

Michael Ausiello indicates that she's being groomed as a love interest for either Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) or Dr. Erica Hahn (Brooke Smith).

Rumor has it that Shonda Rhimes was so enamored with Melissa George that she tweaked her initial plans for the role - which reportedly involved her being a patient in just one episode.

It will be interesting to see if this has long-term potential.

The probable hiring caps a busy couple of weeks for Grey's Anatomy casting department - The L Word's Janina Gavankar and newcomer Brandon Scott will both be new interns and Battlestar Galactica's inimitable Mary McDonnell is on board, too.

They are screwing this show up so bad. I am really pissed. The only good relationship that they had, they had to go and get rid of. They didn't even give the girls time to fall in love. I've heard it rumored that Callie is going to be the next to go. When this happens, I will not watch Grey's anymore.

OK..LOOK!!!! This Freakin out stuff is getting old!!
IF Callie doesn't wanna be with Erica then she needs to tell her instead of giving her hopes up!!!! Callie is starting to upset me. Erica is pooring her heart out and Callie is Blowing it!!!!

OMG I can't believe this. We don't need a new person right now. Callie and Erica are just beginning to fall for each other. They know they care about each other and this is all new and exciting. Please don't mess it up with. (As my brother says. A wrong fag. His words not mine.) LOL!!! She might be hot, but not as hot as the girls right now. So please if you have to take a break and rewrite this. LOL!!! PLEASE!!! Give the "Mc Yummies" a chance. We love them together!!!!

I think this is soo unfair for Callica. Please shonda gives them time to be together. This love is more stronger then nobody can separate them. I hope Melissa George only be a distraction for them, but her relationship is more stronger then "the new intern"

If they put Callie with Mark and Erica with new girl, that would SUCK. I know this is a drama, and they make things difficult for people, but really, can't we have a full on relationship, let them go for awhile, then give them difficulties (like coming out to family, etc.), and have them dealing with that as drama, and NOT making them break up or whatever!! COME ON!!!

I think Callie and Mark will get together. I think he realizes his feelings from seeing her with Hahn. And I think Hahn ends up with intern girl, but I'm just guessing.

Honey-tats

Noooooooo! I really hope she doesn't screw anything up. I love Callica. I'm with everyone else on this one. They really deserve chance here.

I love Callica like everyone else but the spoilers are saying that Shonda likes Melissa and wants to put her in but we have to realize that they have already shot 9 episodes......so it may already be half way through the season before we see her....and if Callie and Erica are going strong when this new chick enters shame on Shonda!

I'm with the others- give Callica a chance to get off the ground. Geez, they've kissed twice and we're already throwing in someone else?? Wait until at least 1/2way through the season at least . . . please?!?!!?!
