Coming to Private Practice: Addison's Father

at . Comments

Last season, Private Practice and Grey's Anatomy viewers got to know more about Addison's past as her brother Archer battled through a life-threatening disease.

From her tenure on Grey's Anatomy to her role as the leading lady of Private Practice, her history has been hinted at more than it has been explored. Until recently.

Fans will soon learn a lot more about her privileged background in this third season, according to reports, in a November episode aptly titled "Sins of the Father."

That's when Addison's dad drops in to Oceanside Wellness Center. Barry Bostwick will guest star as the man known as The Captain, so you know he's important!

To the surprise of no one, the redheaded daughter and her father “have bad blood between them,” the show insider revealed. “It’s a very tense relationship.”

Bostwick is best known for his former role as the Mayor on Spin City. But in 2009 alone, he has appeared on Nip/Tuck, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural.

Private Practice is all-new tonight after Grey's Anatomy.
