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?

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

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
