'Grey's Anatomy' Exclusive: Eric Stoltz lands killer role

Ericstoltz_lHere’s some news that should comfort Izzie “I have sex with ghosts” Stevens: This January, she won’t be the only crazy person roaming the halls of Seattle Grace.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Eric Stoltz has been cast as a serial killer in need of immediate medical attention on Grey’s Anatomy. The actor and future star of Sci Fi’s Caprica, who proved himself to be a believable sociopath in Pulp Fiction and Killing Zoe, is on board for three episodes.

I’m told Stoltz’ story, which takes a surprising turn around the second episode, will raise a myriad of thorny ethical questions for McDreamy and Co.

Stoltz didn’t have to travel far for his audition: He directed several episodes of Grey’s this season, including the Nov. 13 installment, “These Ties That Bind.”

In other Grey’s news, did you know that Jessica Capshaw is scrubbing in as a pediatric surgeon named Arizona Roberts for a multi-episode arc? If not, you just scored a bonus scoop. Congrats!

    Hopefully this arc will help bring Grey’s back up to par. Eric Stoltz is great! I’ve been a fan of his ever since Some Kind of Wonderful.

  • Bren

    as long as denny is around what is the point? this show is lower than low

  • Corinne

    Man, that is some kind of wonderful!!
    Heh. I’ll watch.

  • The Tooth Fairy

    Sigh. More anonymous “Grey’s Anatomy” news. Is the well running dry over there?

  • Katie

    A surprising turn? Will he kill someone? Because I think that would be fun.

  • Sheri

    Hey, maybe since he’s a serial killer he can kill Denny for good and make the silliness stop once and for all.

  • Jacob

    This news depresses me. This just smells of another writing stunt to melodramatize Seattle Grace some more. I like Eric Stoltz, but as a serial killer? Puh-lease. This show is about a helicopter amputation away from becoming ER…

  • matt

    Love Jessica Capshaw! She was great on The Practice as the character Jamie Stringer!

  • kim

    a serial killer? really? because this show totally needs more unnecessary drama. hey, maybe he’ll kill izzie. or george. who wants to bet someone will be held hostage? put in mortal danger?

  • Lauren

    I wish it were Esai Morales. Just for the lols.

  • Erin

    God, I love Eric Stoltz! He should be good to watch (although I have a hard time picturing him as a serial killer since my mind immediately conjures up Little Women and House of Mirth)

  • Anonymous

    He was believable in Pulp Fiction, but definitely not a sociopath.

  • meg

    Little Women! Thank you, I was staring at his picture and could not place him. I knew I liked him and now I realize it’s because I associate him with Christian Bale.

  • Virginia

    Great he does a killer sociopath…literarily! It will be great to see him go crazy at Grey’s! When did you say it will be?

  • Debbie

    Seriously more guest stars…
    This show is out of control and getting more and more ridiculous each week. It makes no sense. Let’s fire a great actress and then bring on additional cast members and guest stars. Wow. Not sure if it is worth watching anymore.
