Melissa George to Play Spoiler For Callie-Erica?

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.

I read this article and posted a response on Shonda Rhimes' blog. Here's what I wrote: "Please tell me the rumor of Melissa George breaking up Callica isn't true! Shonda, you've made tremendous strides getting the public to accept (or begin to accept) their relationship only cause it to crash in a downward spiral. I can't stress enough how detrimental this will be to The Cause. PLEASE reconsider. If anything allow for Melissa George to be a test of their fidelity to one another and prove that women can be involved in committed, lasting relationships. All other portrayals of female relationships are finite and volatile-just look at The L Word. Writers search for conflict and plot but fail to realize they're contributing to a stigma and stereotypes that women can't be committed for anything more than a few dates. You're making this too involved for the public to maintain believability. These two women are acknowledging who they are, have yet to discern what's going on, and yet will chase after another woman? There comes a time when ideas become farfetched I've been loyal from season 1--through the prosperous times and tumultuous times--but destroying something that benefits the Gay/Lesbian/Bi community of the United States because you're enamored by an actress will certainly strip me of my allegiance. I'm begging you, don't do it! Develop the relationship of Callie and Erica, add the twists if you need numbers and ratings, but don't inaccurately portray the reality of the Gay community because you wield a powerful pen."


If she breaks Callie and Erica up I'll be absolutely sick! Where's the petition to keep Callica? Shonda, NO!


sorry.. I meant if they WANT any new characters ^^


c'mooon! in the season premiere callie said she turned lesbian especially for erica and vice-versa... and now they're lusting after female interns? makes no sence! and besides, if any new characters, they should be looking for someone to play the new ob/gyn attending(I want an ob/gyn attending so badly!)


Ahhh I love Melissa George, loved her in Alias (though wasnt a fan of her characters hook-up) but she will rock in this!


Oooh No! Please Shonda, give a chance to Callica first!


Ah lads come on - will you at least let Callica get off the ground before you bring in someone to ruin it. I mean I love Melissa George dont get me wrong - I remember her as Angel in Home & Away. But I want to see much more of Brooke & Sara together - they are brilliant!!


oh come on!! i love calica, Callie and Erica i hope you know !! lol !! ya, 2nd and 3rd season are the past! it is 5th season! even though i loved her!! oh well!!
love alawys Syd


We do not need more people. Let Callie and Erica be happy and concentrate on the cast you do have before they all get fed up and leave!!!


gosh! just bring back the 2nd and 3rd season cast and everithing will be just fine


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.
