Jeff Perry, who plays Mer and Lexie's dad on Grey's Anatomy, has joined the cast of Shonda Rhimes' new pilot, based on PR guru Judy Smith and titled Damage Control.
The Hollywood Reporter first broke the scoop, which is not a surprising one, given Rhimes' propensity for working with actors and actress she loves on multiple occasions.
Perry joins a cast that includes Kerry Washington (Ray) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost).
No, he won't be playing Thatcher Grey. But we expect Thatch will resurface in Seattle before too long, as well. The guy always has a health problem or unresolved family issue!
