Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes has a Christmas present for us.
Okay, it's more of a Valentine's Day present, since we won't get to see it until then. But following her painful separation, Miranda Bailey's long romantic dry spell is over!
The lucky guy? Actor Jason George.
He will begin taking Bailey’s breath away in mid-February as anesthesiologist Dr. Ben Warren. The show's creator and executive producers promises good things then.
“We’re excited that Dr. Bailey’s going to be getting a little bit of loving,” Rhimes recently told TV Guide. “When we first read her pages with (Jason) in the read-thru, the actors went, 'Oooo.'"
"It’s really cute to see Bailey get some attention.”
Jason George is coming to Grey's Anatomy.
George may be recognizable from the ill-fated What About Brian, Eli Stone and Eastwick. Rhimes personally fell in love with him one of the stars of her (unaired) pilot, Inside the Box, which also starred recent Grey’s Anatomy visitors Kim Raver and Sarah Drew.
Rhimes says Dr. Warren take awhile to win over Miranda. “True to Bailey’s style, when she first meets him she doesn’t like him,” Rhimes teases. “But she learns to.”
How long might he be sticking around? “It’s been delightful to put them together,” she says. “We’re going to see what the chemistry’s like and see what happens.”
