James Tupper to Reprise Role on Grey's Anatomy

at . Comments

Having appeared early this season as psychiatrist Dr. Andrew Perkins, James Tupper will return for multiple episodes of Grey’s Anatomy later this spring, according to EW.

Originally brought in to perform evaluations on the residents after last season’s shooting (and romance Kim Raver’s Dr. Teddy), what brings him back to SGMWH is unclear.

Tupper will appear in three episodes toward the end of this season.
