Dominic Monaghan to Join Cast of ABC Series ... Grey's?

at . Comments

Dominic Monaghan is appearing in ABC's new promo campaign, but according to EW, it has nothing whatsoever to do with Charlie Pace being resurrected on Lost.

But that's what the network wants folks to think.

Why? Because they're trying to keep under wraps the real reason he was playing table soccer with Patrick Dempsey, Courteney Cox, and Ed O'Neill in that clip.

Monaghan is featured in that spot because rather than coming back to Lost, where he starred for three seasons, he's actually joining the cast of another hour-long ABC drama series as a full-time regular. And ABC wants it to be a surprise.

A big surprise.

Our question: Why on earth wouldn't ABC want people to know which of its shows' casts would be augmented by Dominic Monaghan, a popular actor from Lost, and also the Lord of the Rings trilogy and the summer blockbuster X-Men Origins: Wolverine?

  • Could it be because the show Monaghan is joining is none other than Grey's Anatomy, and making the announcement could spoil the show's summer cliffhanger?
  • Could Monaghan be taking over the role of George O'Malley from T.R. Knight, or playing a new character altogether that ABC nonetheless wants to keep secret?

We have no evidence to suggest this is actually happening other than what you just read above. It's just a rumor, and we are just throwing that out there. Thoughts?

any one think that Dominic Monaghan COULD be playing George.. anyone think a face reconstruction is to out done on Grey's already? He could survive but get new face, allowing room for a a different actor playing the same character.... think about it :)

its not impossible that they will use Dominic Monaghan as new George O'malley its bec his face is messed up by the accident.. and ofcourse McSTEAMY will do the honor to fix the face by having a new look.. but i dont think it will give the shows a good vibes.. o'malley will be only TR and no one can replace it.. and also for DOM sake .. i dont think its good for hus carrier to portray a second hand role right???

I will miss T.R Knight sooo much, but the character of George i will miss most, if the plot is to do plastic surgery on his face i think this is a great idea. Cant wait for the next series, coming from England will have to wait longer tha US, sooo not fair. Roll on series 6. Avid Fan :)

T.R. Knight has said he wants out, and now it's official. That Dominic guy wont be coming onto Grey's..he's going to be on Private Practice instead. No one can take T.R. Knight's place as George O'Malley.
I think his characters time is up..but i loved him while he lasted on the show. Can't wait to see how they start up the season in September.

Guys, didn't you read? Dom is going to another show. It has been confirmed. I'm glad because he is so not even in the same planet as TR acting and looks-wise. TR is tops!

he would make the show so much better! he'd take it to the next level of AWESOMENESS! but the question is, who would he be falling in love with or have any possible love sences with? and what will he specialize in?!

Didnt George die at the end of the final episode? He met izzie up in heaven (he was wearing his military uniform and greeted her in the elevator when she passed too). So, how is Dom going to play george????

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.
