Dermot Mulroney is the latest addition to Station 19, the red-hot spin-off of Grey's Anatomy.
The popular actor has landed a recurring role on the firefighter drama's second season, which is slated to debut Thursday, October 4.
Mulroney will appear in a multi-episode arc as Ryan Tanner's (Alberto Frezza) father.
Ryan's father makes his big return to Seattle after a long time away, and everyone is surprised by his out of the blue return.
He is described as "sharp-witted, very perceptive and wickedly smart," and is apparently so charismatic that he resolve any problems that may arise for himself.
He hasn't always been on the right side of the law, which really affects him in the eyes of his son.
The character sounds like a perfect addition to the ABC series, and he will surely help peel the layers back on his son.
Mulroney is the second big addition for Season 2, with Code Black alum Boris Kodjoe also landing a recurring role as a firefighter with a secret-filled past.
Even though CBS canceled Code Black after three seasons, there are rumors that the medical drama could return in some form.
The cast currently includes Jaina Lee Ortiz, Jason George, Miguel Sandoval, Grey Damon, Jay Hayden, Frezza, Danielle Savre, Okriete Onaodowan and Barrett Doss.
