'Grey's Anatomy' Admits Amy Madigan
'Field of Dreams' actress to play Seattle Grace psychiatrist
They'll soon have one, in the form of Amy Madigan.
The "Carnivale" and "Field of Dreams" actress has taken a recurring part on ABC's medical drama, which returns to the air on Thursday, April 24. She'll play a psychiatrist on the staff at Seattle Grace, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
As with many things "Grey's"-related, other details about Madigan's role are hard to come by. We can only hope, though, that her character will help straighten out the very tangled psyches of Meredith (Ellen Pompeo), Derek (Patrick Dempsey), George (T.R. Knight) and the rest of the surgeons on the show.
Madigan is a past Oscar (for 1985's "Twice in a Lifetime") and Emmy (for 1989's "Roe vs. Wade") nominee. She recently co-starred in "Gone Baby Gone" and did a two-part guest arc on CBS' "Criminal Minds" at the end of last season.
Her other credits include "The Laramie Project," "Pollock" and the HBO film "A Bright Shining Lie."
