For the role of a new doctor at St. Ambrose hospital, Private Practice is going long. Matt Long, that is!
The actor (The Deep End, Jack & Bobby, Mad Men) will scrub in for multiple episode of the ABC drama this fall, TV Guide confirms, only revealing the character's profession and leaving viewers to wonder whether he'll be a love interest for an employee of Seaside Wellness.
Long had previously booked a role on the Shonda Rhimes pilot Gilded Lilys, a period piece that failed to earn a pickup on ABC this season.
Private Practice Season 6, meanwhile, will premiere on September 25. It's unclear when Long will make his debut.
