Daniel Sunjata has been cast in the recurring role of a nurse who will first appear in this season’s 10th episode, set to air December 2, Fancast has learned exclusively.
And the lucky lady doc? Let’s just say that Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is about to get her groove back, following a few months of lamenting the end of her brief romance with anaesthesiologist Ben “The Gas Man” Warren (played last season by Jason George).
George is now a series regular on the midseason ABC drama ‘Off The Map,’ which is exec-produced by ‘Grey’s’ creator Shonda Rhimes and premieres Wednesday, Jan. 12, at 10/9c.
In addition to his run as ‘Rescue Me’s Franco, Sunjata’s credits include ‘Law & Order: SVU,’ ‘Lie To Me’ and the role of New York Yankees great Reggie Jackson in the HBO mini ‘The Bronx Is Burning.’
What’s your diagnosis, ‘Grey’s’ fans? Is Daniel Sunjata just what the doctor ordered? And are you happy to see hard-working Bailey get another shot at (hot!) romance?
