If Addison Montgomery really leaves Seattle Grace, she might not need to take Mark Sloane with her. The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Taye Diggs will star alongside Kate Walsh in the as-yet-untitled "Grey's Anatomy" spinoff announced yesterday.
According to the story, the pilot episode would show Addison on the verge of leaving Seattle Grace, and if ABC picked up the show, she'd be gone. (Too bad, because I kind of wanted her to be chief.) There's no word yet on who Diggs would play.
I know I'm one of three people who watched Diggs' last project, "Day Break," but he totally won me over there. I could see him being a strong enough presence to hold his own with Walsh, and he's not tough on the eyes, either. I've been giving this spinoff a lot of thought, so read more
While it's cool to learn more about the cast, I wish I had a better sense of what this show would actually be about. After a day of thinking on it, I still think a spinoff seems too sudden and too disruptive to what "Grey's" already has going for it. I know some of you think it will work, though, and I'm ready to be convinced. Comment and tell why this is a good move. Also, anyone got a good potential title? My favorite so far, from TV Guide: "Montgomery's Ward."
