Private Practice Casts Barry Bostwick, Plans to Explore Addison's Family

by at .

Last season, Private Practice viewers watched as Addison's brother Archer suffered through a life-threatening disease.

It like like this was just an initial look into the Montgomery family, as a series rep tells People that fans will soon learn a lot more about her privileged background.

In a November episode aptly titled "Sins of the Father," Barry Bostwick will guest star as The Captain, as Addison's dad drops in to Oceanside Wellness Center.

  • Barry B.
  • Kate is Addison

Daughter and father “have bad blood between them,” the show insider said. “It’s a tense relationship.”

Bostwick is best known for his former role as the Mayor on Spin City. In 2009, he appeared on Nip/Tuck, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural.

UPDATE: This role has been changed. Stephen Collins will now portray Addison's father.
