New Grey’s Anatomy Season 15 Is Bringing On New, First Of Its Kind Male Character
Hey, “Grey’s Anatomy” fans. We’re back at you with another huge report in regards to what’s going down in the upcoming 15th season of your favorite medical drama. It turns out that the Grey’s Anatomy production team has been very busy at work, casting yet another new male to join the ensemble.
This new male will be the first of it’s kind though. First of all, he will be a surgeon. According to TVline.com, Grey’s Anatomy has never brought on a surgeon role. The other unique thing about this new male is that he’s gay.
TV line pointed out that there haven’t been many gay, male characters on the show in the past. We’ve obviously seen gay females with the the Callie Torres and Arizona Robbins characters and so on and so forth, but not many men.
This new male surgeon will go by the name of Dr. Nico Kim. He’s going to be played by actor Alex Landi. You guys can view photos of him on his official IMDB page by Clicking Here. It’s currently unclear how many episodes that Dr. Nico Kim will show up in. However, he is reported to be a recurring character. So, we can expect to see him from time to time.
It’s also been pointed out that Alex Landi is a mixture of Korean and Italian if any of you guys were wondering what his ethnic background is. It was immediately clear to us that he’s Asian, but the Italian mixture was very informative.
Alex Landi’s acting resume is not the most extensive, but he does have some acting experience. According to his IMDB page, he’s appeared in 262 Days (short), Bull tv show, Prillen Short Shorts tv show, Childlike tv show and Broken Land (production type is unknown).
We’re sure Alex will do a very good job if the Grey’s Anatomy production team decided to hire him. He’s definitely a newcomer to the acting game. His acting resume only dates back to 2016. So, we’ll see. Grey’s Anatomy is definitely his biggest acting gig. We wish him good luck. ABC refused to provide any further details about who Alex’s character Dr. Nico Kim will interact with or anything else. Again, we just know that he’ll be a recurring character for now. Hopefully, some other details will show up in the not-to-distant future.
How do you guys feel about Grey’s Anatomy bringing on a new, male, gay surgeon in season 15? Are you happy about it? Are you sad about it? Are do you just not care one way or the other? Let us know in the Facebook comments.
Alex Landi’s casting joins other big season 15 casting moves which include former Nashville star Chris Carmack’s hiring as the hospital’s new “ortho god.” His real name has yet to be reported. Before that, it was announced that Kim Raver’s Dr. Teddy Altman had been bumped up to a season 15 regular. The other big casting is that the show is bringing back Meredith Grey’s father Thatcher Grey played by actor Jeff Perry.
As previously reported, season 15 is being titled “The Season Of Love” by current showrunner Krista Vernoff. We’re going to see main character Meredith Grey get a new love interest. Alex and Jo are going to get a lot of honey moon time to kick off the season. We’ve heard reports that the big two hour premiere episode will feature a lot of funny moments as well as a lot of drama.
We’re looking for ABC to finally release their first episode press release this month if they haven’t already. When they do, we’ll certainly be letting you guys know what we’ve learned from it. So, be on the lookout for that.
Alright guys. That’s going to wrap it up for this latest Grey’s Anatomy season 15 report. As previously reported, the new season 15 premiere episode 1 is scheduled to debut on Thursday night, September 27, 2018 at approximately 7 pm central standard time on CBS. Once again, it’s a two hour premiere episode.
If you haven’t marked that important date down on your TV show calendars, you should definitely do it now as that day is getting closer and closer. Also, be sure to follow us on our Grey’s Anatomy Facebook page for more Grey’s Anatomy news by Clicking Here.
