Matthew Morrison Joining Cast of ABC Medical Drama GREY'S ANATOMY

TV Line reports that GLEE alum and Broadway vet Matthew Morrison will be joining the cast of ABC's hit medical drama GREY'S ANATOMY. Although the network has not officially confirmed the casting news, photos have popped up on social media showing Morrison on the 'Grey's set alongside series regular Justin Chambers:

On the same day, a Twitter post teased that Morrison will be taking on the role of "Dr. Paul Stadler," although the title of the series is never specifically mentioned. Check out the post below:

As TV Line previously reported, the long-running ABC drama was looking to cast a "Caucasian actor in his mid 40s to play a new DOCTOR WHO is appealing, charismatic and charming, but also manipulative with a scary dark side." The character will most likely continue a story arc into next season.

Morrison is perhaps best known for his role as Mr. Schue on TV's GLEE. His Broadway credits include FINDING NEVERLAND, SOUTH PACIFIC and THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA.
