The Private Practice cast is so crazy, Shonda Rhimes added a second full-time psychiatrist.
Sources confirm to EW that Brian Benben, who has played Sheldon Wallace for the better part of two seasons, has been promoted to a full-fledged series regular.
Benben first joined the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off on a recurring basis back in Season Two as the resident shrink at Oceanside’s rival practice, Pacific Wellcare.
But it wasn't Sheldon's counseling that endeared him to PP fans - he’s jumped into doomed romances with fellow therapist Violet and, more recently, Charlotte.
Maybe next time, Sheldon won't be someone's second choice.
Glad to see he received a promotion in any case. What's not to like about Sheldon, neuroses aside? What do you think Rhimes has in store for him in Season 4?
