The veteran actor (Body of Proof, Desperate Housewives, Perception) has landed a recurring role on the ABC drama, Deadline reports, coming on board this fall as a well-respected surgeon named Dr. Parker.

Considering the unknown fates of many of our favorite doctors a the conclusion of the May finale, it's unknown whether Culp's character will be based in Seattle Grace or a different hospital.

Christina is not the head of cardio. She can't be. She's not going to jump from 5th year resident to chief cardiothoracic surgeon; she still needs to complete 3 years of cardio fellowship.

Maybe his speciality is plastic surgery...With Lexie's dead, Sloan might go back to NY. And Cristina will be the head of Cardio.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
Derek: Anger.
Bailey: Bargaining.
Lexie: Depression.
Richard: Acceptance.
