Jeff Perry Cast in Shonda Rhimes' Damage Control Pilot

at . Comments

Jeff Perry, who plays Mer and Lexie's dad on Grey's Anatomy, has joined the cast of Shonda Rhimes' new pilot, based on PR guru Judy Smith and titled Damage Control.

The Hollywood Reporter first broke the scoop, which is not a surprising one, given Rhimes' propensity for working with actors and actress she loves on multiple occasions.

Perry joins a cast that includes Kerry Washington (Ray) and Henry Ian Cusick (Lost).

Thatch is Back

No, he won't be playing Thatcher Grey. But we expect Thatch will resurface in Seattle before too long, as well. The guy always has a health problem or unresolved family issue!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Arizona: Oh my God! I mean, I understand why you're into her. She's hot. Wait, she likes you?
Nathan: What? I mean, I'm going to try not to be offended at that.
Arizona: No, no, no. It's just that Derek was--Derek was epic for her. They were the great love story. I mean, that girl's heart beat for Derek Shepherd. It just...it never occurred to me that she would ever be with anyone else. He was perfect. He was everything. That man turned her world. It...I spooked you. Don't be spooked.

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)
