Since "graduating" from Greek in 2011, James has also notably appeared in Torchwood: Miracle Day and guest-starred on both CSI: NY and Shameless.

In other Grey's news, it looks like the future of the show is still bright.

Ellen Pompeo and Patrick Dempsey each signed two-year deals that will keep them on the long-running drama through the end of Season 12 (Spring 2016).

While ABC has yet to pick up the show beyond the current Season 10, that big piece of news made its already strong prospects for renewal even brighter.

Grey's Anatomy returns Thursday, February 27.

A Hard Day's Night
The series opens with Meredith removing a sofa pillow from the bare bottom of a man named Derek. The rest is history.

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.
