Geena Davis Joins the Cast of 'Grey's Anatomy'

Yesterday it was announced that Geena Davis will be joining the ranks of surgeons at Seattle’s Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital for upcoming season of the medical drama. “Wait, Grey’s Anatomy is still on?” Yes. Obviously. Otherwise why would Geena Davis be joining the cast?

There’s no word on what role on the series her character will play, other than delighting me by dwarfing Derrick Shepherd on a regular basis. The show lost series regular Sandra Oh after the end of the last season when she abandoned Seattle Grace Mercy Death for Zurich, and most of us still watching heaved a huge sigh of relief that the last reason to care about the show had elegantly departed. This news means I may have to tune in once or twice just to see if Ms.Davis will be bringing any semblance of sanity to the most poorly run hospital with the “best” surgeons. Is it wrong that I’m rooting against her success? I like Geena Davis, but without Cristina Yang, I feel like the best thing for the show is a final season to wrap up the other characters before ending with as much dignity as it can muster at this point. Perhaps Davis can help it with that.

    Maybe she can show up with her bow and a quiver full of arrows, and the whole season can just be her taking out the rest of the staff, one by one.

    I like Geena Davis. It is good that she gets a nice paycheck, and SAG health insurance for the next year. Now if someone could give her a GOOD show.

  • e jerry powell

    The thing about SAG is that for somebody with Geena Davis's pay grade and years of employment eligibility, all she really had to do was keep her membership in good standing and keep the premiums paid for that health insurance (she's over 40 with more than ten years of earned eligibility).

    That, or she could just pay for her own policy, I suppose, but why, if her union gets her group coverage?

    [I'm going off topic to share a yay excellent NY Times review for my opera company. Esp since you should enjoy the man love in the accompanying photo.]

    [For some reason, all the bitchy queens at parterre box have been far too devoted to Glyndebourne and Glimmerglass this summer.]

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Our parterre review went up today.

  • e jerry powell

    Yup. I saw that.
    :-D

  • Sara_Tonin00

    It's our least glowing review, but not off the mark. Btw, the commenter is correct; the male fairies all have one gilded nipple.

  • Rebecca Hachmyer

    This may be just the PR that Seattle Reaper Drama Mercy Grace needs!

  • NoPantsMcLane

    Even the star of Cutthroat Island does not deserve this.

  • Billybob

    Yeah, but the star of The Long Kiss Goodnight can probably use a regular paycheck.

    That said, I wish they would stop monopolising Kevin McKidd. Lucius Vorenus should be stabbing people on my TV.

  • e jerry powell

    It has been a while since "Commander in Chief," hasn't it? And with her ex having dumped TV for child brides, it's time Davis got some more attention.

  • F'mal DeHyde

    He should be stabbing people... in my pants.

    Not sure if that works but I really would like to see him in something besides a show I refuse to watch. Did you ever see Journeyman?

  • e jerry powell

    Kevin McKidd is walking, talking slash fiction. He needs to play an eighteenth century bisexual libertine, for my money.

  • Sara_Tonin00

    Whaaaaat. All the money to make this happen actually, even just seeing him as Valmont wiuld be delicious.

  • Christ, this thing is still on the air?!

  • emmalita

    Not even Geena Davis.

  • e jerry powell

    Or Meredith's black sister.
