Geena Davis to guest star on 'Grey's Anatomy' for major arc

By Kyle Johnson,

Oscar winner Geena Davis has been tapped for a role in the upcoming 11th season of ABC's medical drama Grey's Anatomy.

At the moment little is known about the Accidental Tourist actress' role on the upcoming season, Variety reports, with the exception that Davis will play a surgeon and it is said to be a major guest arc.

She previously starred on ABC's Commander in Chief back in 2005 and 2006. She recently appeared in the indie film In a World..."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Davis' addition to the Shonda Rhimes series could help out following the exit of longtime star Sandra Oh.

The plan at the moment for the next season of Grey's is to have Ellen Pompeo's Meredith Grey take center take, with Rhimes saying as much earlier last month. "It's really a Meredith-centric season."

Rhimes added, "There's a lot of growth. She's lost her person. Her sister has showed up. Her husband is chafing to go someplace else. She's got al these things going on." Meredith's mother Eliis Grey, played by Kate Burton, is also expected to return during the season.
