Fred Ward
This morning, we learned that veteran character actor Fred Ward has signed on for a guest starring role on the medical drama as well. He will appear on one of the first five episodes of the season, in what will be his first foray into prime time TV.

Ward, 63, has appeared in more than 70 movies, among them Escape From Alcatraz, Southern Comfort, The Right Stuff, Tremors and Sweet Home Alabama.

Grey's Anatomy is up for 11 Primetime Emmy Awards, including Best Drama series, which are being handed out Sunday. Will it win? Our readers seem to think so... but they may be a bit biased.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

CRISTINA: "There's a club. The Dead Dads Club. And you can't be in it until you're in it. You can try to understand, you can sympathize. But until you feel that loss... My dad died when I was nine. George, I'm really sorry you had to join the club."
GEORGE: "I... I don't know how to exist in a world where my dad doesn't."
CRISTINA: "Yeah, that never really changes."

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.
