Jessica Capshaw Signs Grey's Contract
According to Entertainment Weekly, it looks like Callie (Sara Ramirez) may be hooking up with another broad - Arizona Robbins. Her portrayer Jessica Capshaw (ex-The Practice) has inked a contract to keep her onboard for the rest of the current season, with an option of being picked up as series regular for season six.
Following the firing of Brooke Smith (Erica Hahn), there were rumblings that ABC was uncomfortable with a same-sex relationship on Grey's Anatomy. Speaking about Smith's exit on a press tour last month, network president Steve McPherson had this to say:
The character was not working for us and the relationship was not working for us.
I'm hoping Callie's latest potential love-interest sticks around for the long-haul. Sure beats watching Dead Denny.
