‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ creator Shonda Rhimes recently told Fancast that Miranda Bailey “deserves some happiness, and I’d like to see her get some.”
Well, it looks like Chandra Wilson’s long-beleaguered divorcée doc is gonna be gettin’ some, indeed. Jason George is coming on board the ABC drama as Bailey’s new love interest, TV Guide Magazine reports.
“We’re excited that Dr. Bailey’s going to be getting a little bit of loving,” Rhimes tells the magazine. “It’s really cute to see [her] get some attention.”
George will first appear in mid-February – just in time for Valentine’s Day? – as anesthesiologist Dr. Ben Warren. “True to Bailey’s style, when she first meets him she doesn’t like him,” Rhimes previews. “But she learns to.”
George’s credits include the soap opera ‘Sunset Beach,’ ‘What About Brian‘ and ‘Eli Stone.’ He also had a role on ‘Inside the Box,’ the Rhimes-produced, D.C.-set drama pilot that did not get picked up by ABC this fall. ‘Box’ also starred Kim Raver and Sarah Drew, both of whom proceeded to turn up on ‘Grey’s’ this season.
What do you think, Bailey fans – do we have a nice match here?
