Tim Daly Teases Pete-Addison Romance on Private Practice
She recently slept with Mark and flirted with Sam. He just had a baby with Violet. But might Addison and Pete still become the Private Practice "super couple" soon?
Tim Daly, who plays Pete, offers some intriguing teases about Thursday night's episode, "Love Bites," and beyond in an interview with TV Guide. Excerpts below ...
Q: The undisputed super couple on Grey's Anatomy is Meredith and Derek. Whom would you choose as the Private Practice super couple fans are most rooting for?
A: Interesting question. A year ago, I probably would have said Pete and Addison, and I may just say Pete and Addison again.
Q: You think it’s time they got it on?
A: TV romances take time. If they burn out too quickly there’s no place to go. But the spark between Pete and Addison has a good chance of combusting again.
Q: Perhaps as soon as this Thursday night?
HEAT: How long until the Paddison passion boils over?
A: Let’s just say they have not consummated their relationship yet on the American Broadcasting Corporation. But I’m not saying they won’t.
Q: So can we assume that the hypothetical Pete/Addison love scene is one of those "less is more" scenarios or is it all out there on display?
A: Let me just say that I think the moisture level of the fans will be high.
Q: Addison has obviously slept with both Derek and Mark – and carried on a flirtation with Sam. Does all her doctor playing with associates bother Pete?
A: Oh for God’s sake, Pete can’t be worried about that. Especially not Pete, who has banged receptionists and psychiatrists. Please. It’s a freaking Petri dish on Private Practice. We’re all swimming around in each other’s bodily fluids all the time.
Q: What’s the big medical case in "Love Bites"?
A: It’s funny, oddly topical and definitely creepy. It’s about some teenagers who are living out their Twilight fantasies by pretending to be vampires.
