Oscar-winning actress Geena Davis is joining an ABC drama series. Deadline.com reports that Davis, who won an Oscar in 1989 as best supporting actress for “The Accidental Tourist,” will have a major guest arc on the medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy.”
Davis will play a surgeon on the show, but it’s not clear whether she will be replacing Cristina Yang, the character portrayed by departed cast member Sandra Oh, after she moved to Zurich. The show kept the question of her replacement unanswered in the finale of its 10th season.
Davis previously starred in the ABC drama “Commander in Chief.”
