Grey's Anatomy: Casting For Two New Surgeons

at . Comments

It's unclear exactly when Grey's Anatomy Season 9 will pick up relative to where May's finale left off, but the show is now casting for two new surgeons in the wake of this spring's tragic death and departures.

Two new surgeons to be hired at Seattle Grace Mercy West this season:

  1. Dr. Parker, described as an elite physician in his 40s or 50s
  2. Dr. Mel Barnett, a slightly younger surgeon than Parker

And then there's this additional casting note: Seattle Grace is reportedly looking for two medical professionals, a man and a woman, who are “smart” but “not Hollywood handsome / pretty.”

No word on how regular these characters will be, or how they will fit in with the main cast, but we welcome your theories, as well as thoughts on who you think should play them, below!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

You think that true love is the only thing that can crush your heart; that will take your life and light it up or destroy it. Then you become a mother.
