On set at 'Grey's Anatomy': 'Switched at Birth' star Vanessa Marano talks tonight's 'disturbing' episode

Behind the scenes at Grey’s Anatomy, the pace moves exactly as it does at Seattle Grace: People move quickly, always in the zone. After eight years of production, it’s a well-oiled machine.

Guest star Vanessa Marano is unfazed by the flurry of activity. It’s amusing watching her calmly observe in between takes — while covered head-to-toe in grizzly cuts and bruises. “I have a bloody massacre of a face, and they just keep adding more as the day goes on. It’s all over, and I’ve got this leg thing happening,” she says, pointing to the horrific bloody marks the makeup team has made on both of her ankles.

In tonight’s episode, Marano plays a torture victim found in the woods, a departure from the teen she plays on ABC Family’s Switched at Birth. While that role provides a dose of weekly drama, it’s not like this. “This is a disturbing one,” she says of the episode. “It has a lot to do with psychological issues and every parent’s worst nightmare. It’s a very gritty episode. And not so much in what you see physically — as far as the marks — but the torture mentality that my character now has because of what has happened to her.” READ FULL STORY

'Grey's Anatomy' star Kevin McKidd previews Owen's struggles -- EW VIDEO

Owen continues to pay the price for his infidelity on tonight’s Grey’s Anatomy.

After confessing to cheating on Cristina just a few episodes ago, the chief is under more pressure than ever at home and on the job. And when EW caught up with Kevin McKidd on the set of Grey’s last month, the multi-hyphenate (he directs and sings too!) said he has great sympathy for his character’s tough position. “There’s a lot of stress in his life at the moment, so he’s trying not to let that affect his efficiency as chief,” he tells us.

But it’s not as easy in practice as it is in theory. And as some sneak peeks from tonight’s episode show, the stresses of every day life are what, in a way, put him face to face with the woman with whom he’d ultimately cheat on his wife. (See the sneak peeks in the video below, along with our interview with McKidd.)

“The thing about Owen is that he tries to do things perfectly, and obviously, he messes up as the chief because you have to make these odd black-and-white decisions and sometimes you make the wrong decision,” says McKidd. “So I think he’s going to do that for a while and try to make better decisions and not let the pressure get to him.” READ FULL STORY

'Castle,' 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'Hawaii Five-0,' 'Once Upon a Time': Find out what's next in the Spoiler Room

I had a revelation recently when chatting with my colleague Mandi Bierly about her sharing a dish of lobster mac and cheese with Pauly Shore during a recent interview. (You could ask her for details on that story, but that’s really all there is to it.): My life is weird.

In the past week, I’ve party-stalked Charlie Sheen (with no luck getting two minutes alone for an interview), talked about Titanic with Ringer‘s Ioan Gruffudd (he’s in it!), watched Megan Mullally steal from my colleagues, and hung out with the cast of the fantastic new drama Scandal. Yes, life is strange. But also wonderful. I guess this is my long-winded way of saying thanks for being part of my wonderful, strange life, Roomies.

And let me return the favor by seeking out some scoop for you. E-mail all requests to spoileroom@ew.com or ask me on Twitter. See you next week!

'Grey's Anatomy' sneak peek: Really, Owen? It was 'just sex'? -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

In Thursday’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy, Owen (Kevin McKidd) attempts to smooth things over with Cristina (Sandra Oh) after admitting he did the hibity with someone else.

“It was just sex,” he says to Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). Yeah, riiiight.

What's the cast of 'Modern Family,' 'Grey's' and 'Two and a Half Men' worth?

tv-shows

Just three years ago, Eric Stonestreet was another no-name actor working in Hollywood, getting by with occasional appearances on shows like Nip/Tuck and CSI. Today, he’s an Emmy-winning co-star of Modern Family who easily ranks as one of the funniest men in primetime TV. Does he deserve to earn as much as 30 Rock’s Alec Baldwin or The Big Bang Theory’s Jim Parsons?

That’s what the producers behind ABC’s hit family comedy will begin asking this summer, when the ensemble is expected to seek substantial raises for working on the three-year-old series. Similar renegotiations are already in the works on Two and Half Men (where deals are up for Ashton Kutcher and Jon Cryer) and Grey’s Anatomy (Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey and Sandra Oh, among others), but the MF talks have the potential to be the juiciest — depending on whether the adults band together à la Friends back in 2000.

OLIVIA PHONES HOME ON ‘FRINGE’
If you thought the Altivia stuff so far was as tense as it could get, wait until you see the Dec. 2 episode. I promise it will knock you (and Altyou) on your butt in the first minutes of the episode and keep you there the entire hour. The tension begins with Peter getting a message relayed to him from Olivia. The question is: Does he believe it? Should he? Meanwhile, a phrase Olivia once told Peter will play a huge part in this episode, and there’s a blink-and-you’ll miss it tender moment between Peter and Walter. Speaking of, Walter introduces us to the term “vagenda” (use your imagination), and we learn of a new (old) device that has the ability to communicate with the other side. Most importantly, to answer a question posed to us by Twitter pal @val04, those of you hoping for Olivia’s return to our world (erm, everyone) should tune in to this episode. Just sayin’.

'Grey's Anatomy' remains healthy, NBC gets great boost from local football game

greys-30-rock-bonesImage Credit: Adam Taylor/ABC; Mary Ellen Matthews/NBC; Adam Taylor/FoxCBS took Thursday among adults 18-49 (3.0 rating/8 share) and viewers (12.6 million) while NBC got a sweet little boost from the Raven/Falcons game that aired on a Peacock affiliate in Baltimore, according to early results. For the exception of The Office - which, at 3.8/10 and 7.6 million, was flat versus last week – all the NBC shows were up on Thursday. Community was up 11 percent to a 2.1/6 (4.8 million), followed by 30 Rock (up 8 percent to a 2.6/7, Outsourced (up 4 percent to a 2.8/7, 6.0 million), and The Apprentice (up 14 percent to a 1.6/5,  4.5 million). Each 18-49 point represents 1.3 million people.

NBC got a nice kick in the pants from the NFL game that aired on the Baltimore station, which is a No. 26 market that reaches 11 million homes. As a result, NBC pretty much tied Fox for third place for the night among 18-49 (2.4/7 versus 2.4/6), according to early returns. Fox averaged 6.9 million viewers for the night while NBC lured 5.5 million. Fox aired originals of Bones (2.5/7 and 9.1 million) and Fringe (1.8/5, 4.8 million). Speaking of which, read Doc Jensen’s super walk-up to last night’s Fringe episode here.

ABC was second for the night in the demo (2.7/7) and viewers (7.7 million).  The repeat of Grey’s Anatomy at 8 did a 1.0/3 and 4.0 million, but the original at 9 averaged a timeslot-winning 4.0/10. It lured 11.2 million. Private Practice scored a 2.9/8 and 8.2 million.  On CBS, Big Bang Theory earned a 4.2/12 and 13 million, followed by $#*! My Dad Says (2.8/8 and  9.7 million), CSI (2.8/7, 12.9 million), and The Mentalist (2.8/8, 13.7 million). It’s always worth reminding everyone that advertisers don’t buy total viewer averages, they buy demo ratings, but boy those audiences stay big for the likes of Marg Helgenberger and Simon Baker.

On the CW, The Vampire Diaries won its timeslot among female teens (2.6/9) and came in second in women 18-34 (2.6/8). The fifth-place network was first from 8-10 p.m. among female teens.

'Grey's Anatomy' scoop: Kevin McKidd to take over the director's chair

Kevin-McKiddImage Credit: Sylvain Gaboury/PR PhotosWe already know that Kevin McKidd can act. Now let’s see how he directs! ABC has confirmed that McKidd – aka Dr. Owen Hunt – will helm episode 13, which will air in early February. It will be his first time directing an episode of the drama.

McKidd has helmed some of Grey’s webisodes, which likely led to this new development. It’s unclear what will happen in the 13th episode, but McKidd isn’t the first employee of Seattle Grace to sit in the director’s chair. Chandra Wilson (Dr. Miranda Bailey) also got a chance.

The Scottish actor – who previously appeared in Journeyman and Rome – has been on Grey’s since 2008.
