Tyne Daly Cast as Derek's Mother

by at . Comments

Here's a minor Grey's Anatomy spoiler / casting note in case you haven't heard about it yet - for the January 15 episode, "Sympathy for the Devil," Tyne Daly (Judging Amy, Cagney and Lacey) has been cast as Derek's mother! Wonder how that will go ...

Tyne Daly

In the episode, the mother of Derek (Patrick Dempsey) will meet Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) for the first time. Will this lead to some Mer-Der drama, which has been lacking? Elsewhere, Owen (Kevin McKidd) and Cristina (Sandra Oh) go on their first real date.

Tyne Daly as Der's Momma is pure genuis. My hat off to who ever thought up this one!!!
I love Tyne Daly. She is an extraordinary actress and is always first class, while always keeping it real. This should be quite entertaining. Now, are the Greys writers up to meeting the challenge of writing for this exceptional woman??? You must know by now, you can't come up with any weak ploy for her. She will have no problem telling you about it. Is it Jan 8th YET???
I'm truly looking forward to seeing her interact with Der, Mark Mer,Cristina and Owen. This is just wonderful.!!!!
