The traumatized staffers at Seattle Grace are about to find the silver lining in May’s deadly hostage standoff: The shoulder they’ll be crying on belongs to James Tupper.
Sources confirm to me exclusively that the ex-Mercy doc (and Men in Trees hunk) is joining Grey’s Anatomy in the recurring role of Andrew Perkins, a trauma counselor brought in to help Seattle Grace recover from that nightmarish season-ending bloodbath.
Tupper is on board for at least two episodes.
Grey’s kicks off its seventh season on Sept. 23 with an episode titled “With You I’m Born Again.”
Thoughts? Is Seattle Grace big enough for McDreamy, McSteamy, and McTreemy? Sound off below!
