McKidd may journey to Grey's

Actor Kevin McKidd has played heroin addict, Roman soldier, and time-traveling journalist, but now it looks like he'll be playing something we all did as kids: doctor.

The star of NBC's failed Journeyman is in talks to join the ABC hit Grey's Anatomy, according to EW.com. He's allegedly in line to play a doctor who recently served in Iraq, and would be in several episodes.

The Scottish actor broke into the business in 1996's Trainspotting, but only recently got noticed by American audiences thanks to his role as Lucius Vorenus in HBO's Rome, Dan Vasser in Journeyman, and a recent part in Made of Honor, which starred Grey's Anatomy's Patrick Dempsey.

Former Sopranos star Jamie-Lynn Sigler is headed back to HBO, says E! Online. Sigler, who played Meadow Soprano on the mob hit, will play herself in a three-episode arc in the upcoming season of Entourage. In the show, she'll play a possible love interest for one of Vincent Chase's boys.

Late last week, another Sopranos alum found a new job. Michael Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti, joined the cast of ABC's Life on Mars--assuming the troubled show makes it to the air. Imperioli will play a rough-and-tumble detective and partner of the show's main character, a cop that somehow gets transported back to the 1970s, played by Jason O'Mara.

Sticking with the cop thing, The Shield's Jay Karnes will appear on FX's new drama Sons of Anarchy, according to The Hollywood Reporter. He'll play an ATF agent in about half a dozen episodes of the show about a motorcycle gang. In The Shield, also from FX, Karnes played Detective Holland "Dutch" Wagenbach.

Also from the Reporter, 90210 has added Meghan Markle and Kellan Lutz as students at the wealthy high school. She'll play a sexy student, he'll play a rich (and probably sexy) lacrosse player.

OMG, this show is awesome!!!

The first ep is so well done and its playing out very nicely.

If you don't know what this is about, think of Soprano's, but for a gang of bikers.

Great show... highly recommend it!!!

McKidd on Grey's would be great. He would surely be an interesting character. Fingers crossed!

Seriously, what FU at NBC was responsible for our losing ONE OF THAT NETWORKS BEST DRAMAS OF ALL TIME?!

Yup, I'm still EXTREMELY PISSED OFF that Journeyman didn't survive, and LAX for that matter (that was also a really great drama)... so, although Grey's has whiny characters that have yet to grow up (writers?!) I will cross my fingers in hopes that Kevin will join the cast and mature them up!

ABC's Life on Mars better fail, the original would be better either way!

He'd make a nice addition to Grey's. Christina needs someone to interact with now that Burke is gone.

That would be fantastic to see him on Grey's. He was so good on Rome and he would give Grey's a much needed shot of energy.

I'd pay good money to see Lucius Vorenus stab McDreamy and McSteamy and McCreamy in their smug faces with a gladius. TOP DOLLAR I TELL YOU!

Grey's Anatomy would be a huge step down for McKidd.

I don't usually watch Grey's, however I would for McKidd, love him as an actor. Miss Journeyman, great show. Too many reality shows bumping these good shows. Tee me off;

I loved McKidd in Rome. I wish Journeyman had made it. I guess I'll try Grey's if he joins.

Journeyman was awesome. I am glad they got to give it a decent ending even if it really really should have been given a second season altogether.
