Skylar Astin Joins Grey’s Anatomy in a Recurring Role

Skylar Astin has joined the cast of Grey’s Anatomy as a new recurring character. The Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist star will make her debut on ABC’s hit series on March 24.

Variety reports that Astin will play Todd Eames, who is “charming and handsome with a gentle soul.” Eames, who has a doctorate in environmental science, is close to his sister who is currently a pregnant patient at Gray Sloan Memorial.

Astin played Georg in the original Broadway production of Spring Awakening, a role he reprized for the recent reunion concert and which will be featured in the upcoming HBO documentary surrounding the event. On television, he has been seen as Greg on Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and as Max on Zoey’s Extraordinary Girlfriend. He also appeared in Pitch Perfect.

Additionally, Astin played Finch in the Kennedy Center concert production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, opposite Betsy Wolfe and Michael Urie, and the Baker in the Hollywood Bowl production of Into the Woods.

Recipient of the 2007 Golden Globe® Award for Outstanding Television Drama Series and nominated for multiple Emmys®, including Outstanding Drama Series, “Grey’s Anatomy” is considered one of the great television shows of our time.

Now in its 18th season, the high-intensity medical drama follows Meredith Gray and the team of doctors at Gray Sloan Memorial as they face life-and-death decisions on a daily basis. They seek comfort from each other and, sometimes, more than friendship. Together, they discover that neither medicine nor relationships can be defined in black and white.
