A.J. Langer to Guest Star, "Drop Bomb" on Private Practice

at . Comments

A.J. Langer of My So-Called Life fame will be coming to Private Practice in a recurring role this fall, debuting in the fourth episode of the coming season on ABC.

She will be playing “someone from an Oceanside doctor’s past.”

Whoever that person is, her arrival will shake things up. Private Practice star Kate Walsh told TV Line's Matt Mitovich that: “A good little bomb gets dropped.”


As for who that bomb is dropped on, speculation is that Cooper and Charlotte may be in for another bump in the road after enduring a traumatic Season Four.

“I cannot confirm or deny those rumors,” Paul Adelstein said, while conceding, “Something’s coming down the pike, and it’s a big bump in their relationship."

“I don’t know if it’ll threaten [Cooper's marriage], but it will be certainly something that would be hard for any couple to adjust to,” he said of the "bump."

KaDee Strickland, Paul's on-screen partner, wouldn't reveal much more, saying: “I can tell you that A.J. is playing a really key role on this show, and a really interesting role on this show, and I’m excited about her role on the show.”

Don't assume the worst for Cooplotte, either.

“People really root for Charlotte and Cooper, and I think Charlotte and Cooper are doing a really good job of making the relationship work,” Adelstein said.

“I think people will be happy with what they’re doing [in Season 5].”

Who do you think Langer will be playing? What sort of developments do you predict for Cooper and Charlotte, and on Private Practice in general? Discuss!

3. I am glad AJ has joined the show, she's probably the most talented actress of her generation. Welcome on board!


@Pandora She is mother of Cooper's child, not Cooper's child.


Well, I've just read that the actress was born in 1974, while Aldestein was in 1969. To close to be father and child, don't you think? Obviously she can look like she is younger, but wouldn't writers have chosen someone more adjusted to the profile?


I agree with DexterIdolizer that this is because the show is interested in these characters and pairing. So i'm glad they are going to have a big storyline.


@Dexter Idolizer: A sudden appearance of Cooper's illegitimate child -supposing that he has one- was the first thing that crossed my mind when I read this spoiler, but I wanted to learn more, because I really don't like this scenario. I want Char and Coop to have their own baby somewhere near the season finale or later and this to be their FIRST one!


I've just read this spoiler and I'm really interested in learning what's it about, as I really love Charlotte and Cooper! So I would be grateful if someone could tell me a bit more about this here or via private message. I am one of the few fans of Private Practice in Greece and I find it difficult to keep up with the show's latest news from here... :( Thank you in advance!


@Dexter Idolizer Have you seen the behind the scene video recently posted during shooting for this episode? Shows this incoming character already interacting with someone.


@Caitlyn: Thank you so very much! :D


I can't wait to see how this will play out.


@Dexter Idolizer Sure! I'll send it to you as a private message just in case not everyone wants to know this set of spoilers. :)

Private Practice Quotes

Charlotte: My mom always says God doesn't give with both hands. You're young, beautiful, brilliant. There has to be something you can't have.
Amelia: Some days I'd give that all up.
Charlotte: That's just the craving talking. The longer you go without a drink...
Amelia: I drank at your wedding. I thought it was ginger ale. I spit it out.
Charlotte: OK, since then?
Amelia: Nothing, but I can't stop thinking about it.
Charlotte: It was an accident. Don't let a slip turn into a fall. Get your butt to a meeting.

Having a conscience is brutal.
