BREAKING: Joshua Jackson Coming to GREY’S ANATOMY

October 21, 2007 by  

HALLELUJAH!! My prayers have been answered. My favorite Dawson’s Creek alum, Joshua Jackson (who played Pacey Witter) is coming back to television and has landed a mutli-episode arc as a doctor on GREY’S ANATOMY!

For those of you who are regular readers of GMMR then you may now how huge this is for me. As long time fan of Jackson’s I have been suggesting for over a year now, right here on this very blog, that Josh would be a perfect fit for Seattle Grace Hospital. Josh is a brilliant actor, but also has the charm and personality to fit in with the doctors on GREY’S. Looks like Shonda is a reader of GMMR too…nah, but she certaintly knows how to get me completely reinvested in GREY’S ANATOMY.

Josh Jackson will appear for the first time during the show’s 11th episode of the season.

I’m not sure I could be any more excited right now!! And here I thought The Beek’s return to UGLY BETTY was big news!! Now if someone could only tell me what Joey Potter has been up to these days…Katie Holmes has gone completely MIA since her days on The Creek.

Thanks to Mandy and ALL of you that tipped me off to this news (I was wondering what was going on when I logged in to find over 25 new email messages).

    Yes!!! Pacey is coming back to TV. This is great news!! I have loved him since his Mighty Duck days and will forever think he is the greatest actor to ever grace the TV Screen. Ok probably not the greatest but to quote Meredith, Seriously!!

    Seriously. This is amazing news. Seriously. JJ back on my tv every week – and sharing the screen with PD – seriously?. Now my question is who’s love interest will he be??? I can’t wait to find out and watch the fun – I hope we get to see a little bit of Pacey charm.

    Savhynot – that’s the other part of the news I forgot to post. Shonda called and asked if I would be interested in coming on board to play opposite Josh. I’m consulting my schedule.

  7. katayla on October 21st, 2007 9:27 pm

    I’m so excited! I could definitely use some more Pacey in my life.

    Love interest for Cristina, maybe? Or Callie?

  8. janet on October 21st, 2007 9:47 pm

    I think he’ll be a love interest for Izzie!!!!
    Kath, consulting your schedule eh? Wow…. hahaha. Oh, I have to go now, JohnKras is waiting for me to finish his backrub (on my bed)…. 🙂

    Hooray! I am so glad that Joshua is back on tv! First the news of David Sutcliffe on Private Practice and now this! I agree with you GMMR, this is a great way to keep me hooked on Grey’s for a little bit longer!

    I think I am going to go watch Dawson’s (season 3 of course)now to remind me why I love me some Joshua Jackson…

  10. jen on October 21st, 2007 11:28 pm

    OMG! I adore Joshua Jackson and have loved him forever! I was just saying to a friend of mine that he is such a good actor (anyone see him in “Bobby”? he was GREAT!), and adorably cute and I couldnt understand why he’s wasn’t in any movies or on tv.
    This is the best news for Grey’s…and for Pacey, I mean Joshua fans every where!

  11. Beth on October 21st, 2007 11:33 pm

    I forgot to mention that I think he could play a love interest for the other Grey! That is if they want to give her a larger story line…

    I was just coming to email this to you!!!!!!

    Seriously, this is what I had already as a “Copy”, ready to “paste” to you:

    Starting with this season’s 11th episode, the Dawson’s Creek alum will guest as a doctor on ABC’s soapy hit.

  13. annewa on October 22nd, 2007 11:44 am

    Seriously great news! Will he be McPacey, McYummy or ??? I’m excited too.

  14. Kristi on October 22nd, 2007 11:46 am

    Oh my gosh! No way, this is awesome news! I can’t wait – I have missed Josh as well!

  15. Nicole on October 22nd, 2007 4:10 pm

    I have never seen an episode of Grey’s – and especially after hearing the fan disappointment over last season, I had no intention to begin watching. THIS, however, may cause me to check it out. I’m wavering – even the great Nathan Fillion hasn’t caused me to start checking out Desperate Housewives, but this is Pacey for crying out loud! Maybe I’ll just have to suck it up – is the show at least improving on itself this year? My friends who do watch mostly gave it up after the season finale – hopefully it’s on an upswing. Joshua Jackson playing a doctor on a t.v. show – one more step to his becoming the next George Clooney, lol.

  16. Rosemary on October 22nd, 2007 6:16 pm

    They better not make him some swarmy character! I was just telling someone that I would love to see Pacey on Dancing with the Stars…but Grey’s is just as good.

  17. Jen on October 22nd, 2007 6:38 pm

    Seriously? I love it.

  18. Amy Carter on October 24th, 2007 8:44 am

    This is brilliant news. As a massive Joshua J fan, I’m thrilled. He is a fantastic actor and I loved him forever since his Pacey days. I’ve never watched Grey’s but I will be now. Amy

    […] that I am most anxious to meet. You can imagine my joy when it was revealed earlier this year that Josh would be starring in a guest arc on Grey’s Anatomy. Sadly due to the strike, those plans have been put on hold […]
