Constance Zimmer to Recur on Grey's Anatomy

by at . Comments

Constance Zimmer has signed on for a recurring role on Grey’s Anatomy as Dr. Cahill, who's described as "a super-confident, self-possessed, laser-focused professional with a wicked sense of humor."

In other words, her character is cut straight from the Shonda Rhimes cloth.

Speaking of Rhimes, and based on the recurring nature of Zimmer's role, it's possible Dr. Cahill could be the new love interest for Alex that the series creator and executive producer has promised.

Just one theory, of course, but one that doesn't feel far-fetched.

Zimmer's many TV credits include Entourage, Royal Pains, Boston Legal and The New Normal. You can also see her in Netflix’s upcoming original political thriller House of Cards, which looks awesome.

With the way the season has been going so far, I thought they were going to fix Alex up with Jo.

Izzie, Izzie, Izzie... Just shut up, already. Lexzie is boring and it doesn't deserve the popularity it has. Izzie became a selfish bitch after leaving Alex. Poor guy, was left broken. Izzie's real love WASN'T Alex. It was Denny. We show that in season 5, when she kept sleeping with his ghost while she was with Alex. Lexzie fans shut the fuck up. Alex deserves a grown person (Not cry babies like Izzie and Jo) and I hope Constance Zimmer will be that one. I prefer her a million times over stupid Izzie. Alex deserves love and since Izzie didn't love him like he did, it better not be her.

So I just watched some grey's reruns the other day and after that I just can't get behind Alex being with anyone but izzie. They are end game and there is just just no one else for him but her. If next season is grey's last season they really need to suck it up offer Katherine heigl anything she wants because Alex deserves love and there is just no other person. Alex and izzie it's just something undeniable. It has to happen

What's happening to the Love scenes promised between Mer&Der? They have been apart for the last two episodes. Please lets get these two together as should be...........

As much as I'd love to see Alex with someone new with no relation to anyone else or in the hospital as a matter of fact, I'd still prefer this doctor over that stupid intern Jo. However, if she's only in it for roughly 3 or 4 episodes, I'd hate to see Alex's heart get broken. Nevertheless, Jessica Capshaw was only meant to be in 3 episodes, much like Kevin McKidd in 2 episodes. I guess we never know!
She could also be for Jackson, seeing as there is meant to be a road bump for April and himself coming ahead in January, I think.

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)

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.
