Balthazar Getty Returning For Brothers & Sisters' 100th Episode

by at . Comments

Brothers & Sisters is about to reach the coveted 100-episode milestone, and one of its departed, original cast members is reportedly coming back for the occasion.

Balthazar Getty, who plays Tommy Walker and who has returned in the same role several times since leaving the show as a full-time cast member, will guest star.

Tommy will also be bringing his girlfriend. Yes. Girlfriend.

Balthazar Getty, who split from his wife Rosetta around the same time Tommy and Julia Walker (Sarah Jane Morris) divorced, has reconciled with his real-life spouse.

His TV persona, it appears, has moved on to someone else.

The girlfriend storyline for the 100th episode, slated to air sometime in January, is still being written and subject to change, but that's where we are at the moment.

Are you happy Tommy's coming back? Might Rebecca or Robert follow suit? Maybe the latter's a bit of a stretch, but still. This is Brothers & Sisters. You never know.

I've been a huge fan since the beginning of this show. But Justin has never had better chemistry onscreen with anyone than with "Rebecca." They really need to bring her back on the show! And it's tough getting used to Calista Flockhart being gone so much. She needs an exciting new love interest to follow up Rob Lowe - I still love the show, but it's not the same as when it started with the 5 Walker children! They should all be on - including Rebecca!

phyllis, what a downer you are! Your statements sound very bigoted and hateful. How wonderful these people would be if this were real life! To show love and compassion for a child that needs love is only a good thing. Not a bad. If you choose to live your life with hatred fine, but why not keep it to yourself! I love that Tommy is back! I hope he stays. He surely looked thin and I am researching online now to find out if he has been sick. I hope he gains weight again. He is a very handsome man!

I agree,,
too much political correctness overload. I would think that minorities out there are insulted about these plot lines. Tess

Why would Scotty and Kevin even think of adopting that fat little Latino girl when they could be going for a baby that would resemble one of them? And now Kitty is left stuck with an African American kid who is getting to old to be cute and will just be a handicap to her with her young boyfriend. Really stupid plot development! And is Saul the only Jewish member of a totally WASP family? Come on! Your writers are destroying this show. It's just getting too token-filled to watch...one of every poticially correct characters to please everybody and nobody.

Even though his character WASN'T a favorite of many**

I may be the minority in this but I'm happy Getty is returning. Even though his character was a favorite of many, it's been odd this season (and even last) watching the Walker family interact with hardly any mention of Tommy, as if he doesn't exist anymore. He was on the series for three years, it seems to strange to just not see him at all anymore. Also, bring back Sarah Jane Morris, reconciliation or not!
