Missy Pyle Cast as Bailey's Boss on Grey's Anatomy: Circa 2000!

at . Comments

Are you ready to meet Bailey's boss on Grey's Anatomy?

No, we don't mean her current boss, The Chief. We mean the boss Miranda Bailey had when the impressionable surgeon first came to Seattle Grace in the early part of the 2000s.

Bailey, who herself went on to become The Nazi as we know, clearly got that from somewhere. Perhaps from Missi Pyle, who has been cast as Miranda's old Seattle Grace boss.


Don't mess with the Nazi ... or the previous Nazi!

Pyle’s appearance comes in a February episode that features several flashbacks to such formative times, including Dr. Richard Webber's infamous affair with Dr. Ellis Grey.

Similarly, viewers will see a younger Bailey (played by the talented Chandra Wilson) get ridden hard by the domineering resident she had to answer to as an intern.

Sounds rough, but at least there's a new love interest waiting for her in the present time this spring. Or so we've been hearing ... and crossing our fingers for. You?

Grey’s Anatomy resumes its sixth season on January 14.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
