James Tupper to Reprise Role on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Having appeared early this season as psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Perkins, James Tupper will return for multiple episodes of Grey’s Anatomy later this spring, according to EW.

Originally brought in to perform evaluations on the residents after last season’s shooting (and romance Kim Raver’s Dr. Teddy), what brings him back to SGMWH is unclear.

Tupper will appear in three episodes toward the end of this season.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."

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."
