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

by at . Comments

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.

Private Practice Quotes

You ever been violated? Anybody rape you lately? Let me tell you what its like. You know those made for TV movies where some woman's crouched down naked in a shower holding her knees and sobbing because when she closes her eyes she can still feel the guys hands on her? How when they show the attack the woman's eyes go all blank and still and she goes to some other place in her mind just to deal with the horror of what's happening to her while some Lillith Fair song plays. It is nothing like that. He's sturdy and sweaty and he licks your face and wipes himself off in your hair and when you try to scream he punches you so hard you see God. And then he goes at you again reaping stuff you didn't even know you had because he enjoyed it so much the first time. I know you're trying to help but if helping me means that everyone is gonna be looking at me the way you're looking at me now please do not help me.
