Peter MacNicol to Appear on Multiple Grey's Anatomy Episodes

at . Comments

Former Chicago Hope, Ally McBeal, Numb3rs and 24 star Peter MacNicol has joined the cast of Grey's Anatomy for a multi-episode arc this season, TV Guide reports.

The actor will play Dr. Stark, a pediatrics attending who will be working closely with Alex (Justin Chambers), and presumably Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) as well.

MacNicol will pop in during November sweeps for at least two episodes, so you know the role is significant. Any thoughts on what the upcoming plot line might be?

Oh no, it seems like in every TV show Peter MacNicol has to show up... Why?! Aren't there any other actors? I'm fed up with seeing his face all the time on TV to whichever show I switch to...

This has to be JC maternity leave cover cos Arizona is gonna win that research grant. But I think it'll be interesting to see how Callie handles her live in girlfriend leaving.

Don't care about the storyline, anything Peter does will have some element of humour to it, he is just naturally funny and I don't think he plans on doing it's just the characters he portrays. I think Dr Stark, may be funny because he works with children, and maybe there is a child that needs his attention and Alex is good in peds, and maybe Arizona is off on her holiday with Callie?

Arizona will win the grant and be out for research/fellowship/smth (as Jessica will be on maternity leave) and he will be her replacement. Ans AZ always said Karev was good for peds.
Though, honestly, I thought that with Az out for maternity we'll se Bailey on some peds cases.
Wondering how the leave of Az will be written in terms of Callzona. Callie deserves to be happy (so far all her relationships ended bad).

He'll probably be in while J. Capshaw is out on maternity. That's what I'm thinking.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.

Callie: Did anyone ever think you two were a couple?
Meredith: No, because we screw boys like whores on tequila.
Cristina: Then we either try to marry them or drown ourselves.
Callie: Huh.
