Peter MacNicol to Appear on Multiple Grey's Anatomy Episodes

by 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?

Sadly, i havent see these episodes, but im sure, he was awesome there :)

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.


Arizona out for maternity and new doct 's arring to Sgh ,i like this actor ,but there was to need of another doc ,with more screen-tv for the old characthers without the Capshaw...this was the way...


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.


The biscuit?
