Benjamin Bratt Cast in PRIVATE PRACTICE

Benjamin Bratt

Looks like PRIVATE PRACTICE isn’t done with changing up the cast this season.

According to The Hollywood Reporter the ABC drama has just added Benjamin Bratt to its cast.

Right now the details of Bratt’s role are being kept hush hush, but I can tell you that he will make his first appearance on the show in the season finale. Then he will join the series next season as a regular.

News of Bratt’s addition comes just two months after cast member Audra McDonald made the announcement that she was leaving the show “to spend more time with her family in New York.” There were other changes earlier in the season, when the show brought both Brian Benben (Dr. Sheldon Wallace) and Caterina Scorsone (Dr. Amelia Shepherd) to regular cast members.

Bratt is anything but a stranger to TV audiences. He’s had leading roles in several series over the past decade, including NBC’s Law & Order and A&E’s The Cleaner. More recently, the actor guest starred on an episode of ABC’s Modern Family.
