Caterina Scorsone to return to 'Grey's Anatomy'

Season 10 of Grey’s Anatomy is quickly filling up with familiar faces. First, there was the news that Isaiah Washington will return as Dr. Burke, and now, EW has confirmed that Caterina Scorsone will once again set foot in Seattle.

Scorsone plays Amelia, Derek’s youngest sister and a fellow neurosurgeon, who many fans might recognize from the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off Private Practice. Scorsone appeared briefly on Grey’s but was a regular on Practice, where her character’s main story dealt with drug addiction. After Amelia’s fiance died of an overdose, she got clean in enough time to give birth to a child that had only half a brain.

By the end of Practice‘s run, Amelia was clean and happily involved with fellow doctor James. As for her return to Grey’s, we only know that she will first appear sometime in May and will then recur for the rest of season 10. TV Guide first broke the news of her casting.

Paul Adelstein is coming back to Shondaland!

EW has confirmed that the former Private Practice star has booked a recurring role on the third season of Shonda Rhimes’ hit drama Scandal, playing an as-of-now secret role. His episode is set to air in late October.

News of his casting, first reported by TVLine, comes on the heels of Lisa Kudrow’s recently announced role on the upcoming season. The former Friends star will reportedly play a politician.

Adelstein played pediatrician Cooper Freedman on Rhimes’ Grey’s Anatomy spin-off for six seasons until its conclusion in January and is also known for his role as Paul Kellerman on Fox’s Prison Break.

Scandal returns Oct. 3.

The hair and makeup trailer at Private Practice became a homebase of sorts for the cast, according to star Kate Walsh. Over six seasons, she says, it has become a “magical”, “sacred place.” Somewhere the actors could go to “be ourselves.”

Thanks to KaDee Strickland, the video below gives an inside look at this laughter-filled center of action, helmed by makeup department head Sergio Lopez-Rivera and hair department head Arlene Chavez:

Over six seasons, Charlotte and Cooper have been through thick and thin, good times and bad, and everything in between. And this season, they took on one of their greatest challenges yet: the impending arrival of three babies. It hasn’t gone smoothly, but as executive producer Barbie Kligman tells Strickland in today’s behind the scenes video diary, the couple’s ability to handle trying times has been partly why their journey has touched audiences. “There’s something so lovely about their relationship because it’s real,” she says.

Kligman isn’t the only one with nice things to say about CharCoop. Click below to hear Kate Walsh’s thoughts on the couple and see some exclusive rehearsal footage from their dances earlier this season.

'Private Practice': Paul Adelstein on tonight's Cooper-centric hour, saying goodbye to the series

Cooper (Paul Adelstein) and Charlotte’s (KaDee Strickland) journey toward baby town is about to hit a snag.

In tonight’s episode, the couple will find themselves battling to keep their triplets from being born prematurely after complications arise — and viewers will get to see it all unfold through the eyes of worried father Cooper. “You kind of get a glimpse at how his head is working through all of this stuff, which is fun and funny. And then some stuff goes on with the pregnancy that gets a little more serious, so the audience is taken along on that ride, too,” previews Adelstein.

And while the Cooper-centric hour will give us a glimpse into the doc’s mind, it’s also a window into the “tensions” between the parents-to-be, says Adelstein. “He’s very excited to be a father to three more children. But he’s concerned for their life because it’s risky to carry multiples, and he’s a little concerned about Charlotte’s reticence, in general, I think,” he says. “He wants to make sure she’s fully on board and at least appreciating the level of commitment this thing is going to take.”

'Private Practice' ending

Private Practice‘s current season will be its last.

Creator Shonda Rhimes made the announcement today, saying that the decision to make the 13-episode sixth season the show’s last came after “a lot of discussion and debate.”

Her full statement is below.

“I’m sad to say that Private Practice‘s run will end after episode 613 this season. There was a lot of discussion and debate but, in the end, the guys at the network and the studio and I all decided that Private Practice was reaching its finish line. Creatively, we are all extremely proud of the show and especially proud of this season — which you will all soon discover is a creative renaissance. I can’t wait for you to see it.

It’s heartbreaking to end. Truly. I feel so lucky to write for these characters and tell these stories and I truly feel this show has taught me so much as a writer. And there’s a family here, of crew and cast, people who have bonded over these past five and a half seasons. It’s rare for a show to go for more than 100 episodes and we are incredibly proud to have been such a show. And we’re grateful to all of you for spending time with us for an hour every week for the last 6 years. It’s meant the world.

Thank you.”

Star Kate Walsh had previously made it clear that she would be done with the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off after this season, but told EW last month that she thought the show could go on without her. Additionally, she left the door open for a return to either Grey’s Anatomy or Practice, should the latter continue in her absence. “That’s Shonda’s decision really. I wouldn’t want to do it all of the time but I certainly wouldn’t be opposed to it either especially if a good storyline came up that needed [Addison],” she had said.

It’s October!! Holy muffins. How did that happen?

It’s been a busy couple of weeks on my end. First, there was the Emmys, immediately followed by a series of set visits in Vancouver that sucked the life out of me in the best way possible. Now I’m back in New York, fall is in full swing, new shows are beginning to stick (and others, not so much), and hopefully we’re all enjoying having DVRs full of goodness. I know I am.

So let’s get to it. Remember to be sending me your scoop requests (spoilerroom@ew.com) and follow me on Twitter for witty commentary and TV news. Also, if you’re emailing, take a second to tell me your favorite new show of the fall. This is an informal poll, but I’m really curious what scoop you might be craving in the near future. Time for some dish. Nom. Nom. Nom.

Kate Walsh previews 'Private Practice': 'Huge news happens to every single character!'

As we head into Private Practice‘s sixth season this evening, there are so many questions: Who will Addison (Kate Walsh) choose — Jake (Benjamin Bratt) or Sam (Taye Diggs)? What will happen after Walsh leaves in 13 episodes? Will Addison get a happy ending? Will the series live on after her departure?

EW recently nabbed a little time with the series’ star to discuss the upcoming season — how it felt making it to 100 episodes, what will happen for Addison this season, how she’d like to see the character go out, and much, much more. Walsh, for her part, is feeling good about her decision to leave. “I can’t help but look back and be in the moment and look at the future all at once, which is a little crazy making,” she says. “But it’s exactly where I think I’m supposed to be.” And, she says, the season is really all about all the characters: “Huge news happens to every character!” Interesting.

Tune into the season 6 premiere of Private Practice tonight at 10 p.m. on ABC, but first, let Kate Walsh preview what’s coming to Oceanside this season.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How did it feel to make it to the 100th episode of Private Practice, which airs later this season?
KATE WALSH: Yeah, it’s huge! It was funny, leading up to it, I was like, “Oh, we’ve got that 100th episode celebration thing at lunch at 12,” and then I got very unexpectedly emotional, like very touched and moved, thinking, Oh my gosh! You can’t help but think back. From the beginning on Grey’s Anatomy, who would have anticipated a spin-off? And then, how rare do spin-offs even work, and then we had the writer’s strike. Lo and behold, here we are in our sixth season.

The Private Practice star appeared on Bethenny Frankel’s self-titled talk show and confirmed the rumors that have been swirling for weeks — the upcoming sixth season of Private Practice will be her last. “This is my last season for Private Practice, yes,” she told Frankel. “It’s been an incredible journey and an amazing ride…It’s bittersweet.

Tim Daly tweets he's leaving 'Private Practice'

When Private Practice fans last saw alternative medicine guru Pete Wilder, he had just returned from jail and reunited with his wife Violet (Amy Brenneman). But though Pete’s storyline still has more than a few loose ends, viewers shouldn’t expect to see them get tied up neatly: According to Tim Daly, the character he plays will not return for the medical drama’s upcoming sixth season.

“Wonderful fans of PPP. Shonda [Rhimes] informed my agent today that Pete wont be returning for season 6,” Daly tweeted late last night. “It was a great 5 yrs. R.I.P. Pete Wilder.”

Daly’s departure comes on the heels of two high-profile exits on a different Rhimes drama – Grey’s Anatomy‘s explosive eighth season finale revealed that both Chyler Leigh and Kim Raver are leaving the show.
