GREY’S ANATOMY Admits Scott Foley

Scott Foley on Cougar Town

Scott Foley (The Unit, Felicity) has signed on for a major recurring role on GREY’S ANATOMY. Entertainment Weekly reports that he will play Henry, a patient who “stirs things up” for Teddy (Kim Raver).

If the above description reminds you of the Denny-Izzy storyline, you’re not alone, but executive producer Shonda Rhimes claims there are few similarities between the two arcs. According to her, “[Henry’s] very different from Denny, but I guess in the sense that he’s a patient who comes in and has an effect on one of our doctors, I guess that’s similar.”

There’s no word yet on how many episodes Foley will appear in, but he is expected to arrive at Seattle Grace in the tenth episode.

Grey’s Anatomy airs on ABC Thursdays at 9pm/8 central.
