'Grey's Anatomy' Exclusive First Look: Jesse Williams (nearly) naked!


In what’s bound to be Grey’s Anatomy‘s most talked about character reveal since Eric Dane’s McSteamy stepped out of that infamous shower four years ago, Jackson Avery—as played by Jesse Williams—will ditch his scrubs in the Oct. 14 episode during a tense confrontation with his supervisor, Teddy (Kim Raver). But before you call the Gratuitous Nudity Police, know that he has a serious medical reason for doing so: He tries (and fails) to use his impressive body of work to get ahead.
“He and Teddy butt heads throughout the episode and it leads to a faceoff,” explains Williams. “[Jackson] learns what benefits him and what doesn’t in terms of flirting and sexuality.”
Though Teddy may be immune to his charms, Williams—who “put down the cake and ran a few more laps” in preparation for his first semi-nude scene—confirms that Jackson will get a love interest this season.
Rumor has it series creator Shonda Rhimes may pair him with the incoming doc played byTransformers babe Rachael Taylor. “I have not heard that,” says Williams. “But we did an HBO pilot together called Washingtonienne. She was a very nice girl.”

When Amelia Met Derek: Caterina Scorsone Reveals Grey's Anatomy-Private Practice Crossover Details

Shepherd Squabble
Grey's Anatomy. Private Practice. The worlds cross over again October 7.
At the center of this latest Shonda Rhimes-created event? Caterina Scorsone, who plays Amelia Shepherd, sister of Derek. She says we can blame Addison for this one.
No, really.
"Basically Addison kicks her in the keester," the actress tells E! Online of the siblings' awkward reunion. "Amelia has been kicking and screaming and doing everything she can do to avoid the inevitable, but Addison somehow convinces her that she's gotta go to Seattle."
"[Derek and Amelia] have been at an impasse for years after their father's tragedy," Caterina Scorsone says. "She has some pretty bad behavior and Derek's got his quirks. I'm not going to give Amelia all the blame, but there's some cathartic movement in that relationship."
In addition to bringing Grey's Anatomy and Private Practice characters together again, this should offer some new insight into the mind of the former's leading man.
"You find out a lot about Derek," Scorsone promises. "That's one of the things that'll be interesting for a lot of people who have been watching the show for years, myself included. You really get to find out about that tragedy that's colored both of our lives ever since."
"We were young when we witnessed our father's murder, and so fans really get to learn about that. Amelia is pretty focused on Derek and trying to mend that relationship," the actress continues. "And I'm really happy with how it all went."
We can't wait. Both shows premiere Thursday at 9 and 10 p.m., respectively.

SPOILER! Grey’s Anatomy Wedding Secrets Revealed

After surviving the shooter rampage that claimed the lives of two doctors at Seattle Grace Hospital on the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy, Cristina (Sandra Oh) and Owen (Kevin McKidd) realize that life is too precious — and will tie the knot during the show’s Sept. 23 premiere on ABC.
“It’s very surprising,” Oh tells PEOPLE. “Hopefully it will make sense [to viewers]. After something as obliterating as the shooter comes in, when push comes to shove Owen says, ‘I want to spend my life with you.’ It’s almost clearer and easier to make that decision.”
Of course, this isn’t the first time Cristina was about to say “I do.” In season 3, she and Burke (Isaiah Washington) nearly tied the knot. But in the end he backed out, leaving her heartbroken in her wedding dress.
Things are very different this time around. “When she was about to marry Burke many of the decisions weren’t really hers,” Oh says. “She never wanted to get married or wear ‘the dress.’ Having a much more relaxed and casual wedding is closer to who she and Owen are.”
The happy occasion was well-received by all the actors on the set of Grey’s, but perhaps not for the reasons you’d expect. Says Oh, “I think people were more happy and giddy not to be wearing scrubs.”

'Grey's' exec explains love triangle end

Grey's Anatomy
 creator Shonda Rhimes has revealed that one of the romances on the show has ended.

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Rhimes explained that the love triangle between Mark (Eric Dane), Lexie (Chyler Leigh) and Alex (Justin Chambers) will no longer exist.

"At the end of the season, Alex was asking for Izzie," Rhimes said. "It's really hard to feel like there's a love triangle going on if the man Lexie loves is clearly asking for another woman."

Rhimes also revealed that Lexie will understand the situation quickly, saying: "She's very clear on that by the time the [season premiere] is over."

Grey's Anatomy returns for a new season on September 23 on ABC.

Filming of 'One for the Money' brings out onlookers, happily displaced homeowners

Debbie Reynolds, her trademark blond hair tucked under a gray wig and a long maroon scarf looped around her neck, waved at the folks on South Pacific Avenue watching Janet Evanovich's book "One for the Money" come to life.
Stray onlookers also saw both Katherine Heigl and her stand-in -- in matching short-sleeve T-shirts, jeans, sneakers and dark ponytails -- enter or exit a house in Friendship.
The former "Grey's Anatomy" star portrays Stephanie Plum, a lingerie buyer who loses her job and improbably finds herself working for her sleazy cousin's bail bonding company.
She's half-Italian and half-Hungarian and hails from Trenton, N.J., being played by such locations as Friendship-Bloomfield, the North Side, Braddock, Wilkinsburg, Shadyside, Mc Kees Rocks, Ambridge in Beaver County and Kittanning, Armstrong County.
"I have an 87-year-old uncle who was a bomber pilot in World War II and I'm telling him about this movie being filmed in our house and he said, 'I read that book,' " Mr. Pizzuto said with a laugh.
So have millions of others. If all goes as planned, the movie being directed by Julie Anne Robinson ("The Last Song," some "Grey's Anatomy" episodes) will arrive in theaters in July with a PG-13 rating.
In addition to Ms. Heigl, it stars Jason O'Mara as irresistible vice cop Joe Morelli; Daniel Sunjata as Ranger, sexy bounty hunter extraordinaire; John Leguizamo as a boxing manager; Debra Monk and Louis Mustillo as Stephanie's blue-collar parents; and Ms. Reynolds as spry, eccentric Grandma Mazur.

Casting questions
Producer Wendy Finerman read "One for the Money" in galley form and optioned the novel before it was published in 1994. She was sold on Stephanie as an "everygirl, a hometown girl."
The project went through various incarnations and rumored actresses before going into production with Ms. Heigl and an adapted screenplay by "Nurse Jackie" executive producer-writer Liz Brixius. Why so long?
" 'Forrest Gump' took 10, 11 years," said Ms. Finerman, who shared the Oscar for best picture for the Tom Hanks movie. "Some of them take many years, some of them don't. ...
"One of the things with this was just finding the right tone in the script and the right actor to play it and also, at times, different kinds of movies come in and out of fashion," with women-driven pictures a bit more challenging, to say the least.
Some fans of the series have criticized the choice of Ms. Heigl but, with dark curly hair, she looks very unlike TV's Dr. Izzie Stevens or the romantically challenged heroines of "Knocked Up," "27 Dresses" or "The Ugly Truth."

Kim Raver finds some of herself in strong characters

Kim Raver's characters are survivors.
"There seems to be a theme running through the women I play," Raver says. "They take their circumstances and try to make the best of them.
"Subconsciously maybe that's something I'm drawn to. I have an incredible role model in my mom. She was a single mother raising two kids in New York.
"Growing up the way I did, I definitely have an independent side to me. I didn't give it up until I met my husband (French filmmaker Manu Boyer). He's so wonderful I allowed myself to let someone else in and help out."
In Raver's new film, Bond of Silence, airing Monday on Lifetime, she plays a woman whose husband is mysteriously murdered while trying to quell a wild teenage house party. Trying to discover what actually happened, she must somehow break through the enforced secrecy the teens and their parents have thrown up around the case. The film is inspired by a true story.
"We never know how we'll react in those circumstances," Raver says, trying not to give away the twist in the story. "What she ends up doing in the end I thought was fascinating."
Raver, 41, has always sought roles that weren't simply love interests. Currently on Grey's Anatomy, she plays Dr. Teddy Altman, a cardiothoracic surgeon just back from a tour of duty in Iraq. She spent five years as paramedic Kim Zambrano onThird Watch(1999-2004). On 24, her character Audrey Raines started out working for the U.S. Department of Defense. But then she fell in love with Kiefer Sutherland's Jack Bauer and found herself in more jeopardy than she would have liked.
Currently, Raver lives in Los Angeles in order to film Grey's. What will her character Teddy be up to this coming season? "Teddy is definitely moving in the direction that maybe the triangle (involving Sandra Oh's character Christina and Kevin McKidd's Owen Hunt) won't be as prominent," Raver says. "It was a great device to get Teddy in there. It was really fun and exciting, and sparks were flying. But I think it will be really great to see her with a guy—hopefully but I'm not sure—that's not attached and explore that side of her."

EXCLUSIVE: Sara Ramirez: "Whether people are straight or gay, sh*t happens!"

Sara Ramirez: "Whether people are straight or gay, sh*t happens!" caught up with Grey’s Anatomy star Sara Ramirez to get exclusive insider dish on season seven of the medical drama (premiering Thursday, September 23rd). The smart and beautiful Mexican actress, 34, told us what’s coming up for her character, Callie Torres, why no relationship is ever perfect, and why she wouldn’t mind walking down the aisle—on TV.
 Last season, Grey’s Anatomy ended with multiple cliffhangers—one of which was Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) agreeing to have a baby with Callie. Does Arizona keep her promise in the new season? 
I feel like the shooting in last season’s finale—which was well received by a lot of people—caused a lot of characters to make decisions about their lives and their partners. It will be interesting to see how those promises play out. I don’t know if Arizona jumped the gun—or if she really meant it that she’s going to have a kid with Callie. I don’t know if she wants to be with Callie forever.
 Is there any chance that Callie and Arizona will enter into a domestic partnership?
Callie has been married once before and I know that she promised her father that she would walk down the aisle in a wedding dress—if Arizona were into that. But I don’t know where Arizona’s at with the whole situation. I think Callie would be into that.
 Do you personally want to see Callie walk down the aisle on Grey’s?
I would like to see Callie with someone who is not just her lover, but also her friend—somebody who’s in it for the long haul. Right now Callie is with Arizona and I’m really happy that she’s found someone that she’s happy with, at the moment. I want Callie to ultimately be really happy with herself. 
 If Callie and Arizona have a kid on the show, do you think one of them would get pregnant or would they adopt a child?
I’ve thought about that. I think adoption would be really interesting because it removes the whole sperm donor issue. Adoption is a global issue these days—it’s certainly current—and it’s encouraging for a lot of couples whether they’re straight or gay. 
 Is there any chance that Grey’s would introduce a new love interest to come between Callie and Arizona?
Jessica and I have talked about this a lot. I think [Callie and Arizona] need conflict. I think they should bring in somebody else to threaten the relationship, because that happens all of the time in real life. Whether people are straight or gay, you know, shit happens! Conflict happens. People aren’t happy all of the time.
 How do you think the fans would react to that?
It’s a touchy subject.  I know that there are many fans out there that feel represented and they are hungry for a lesbian or gay couple that is not dysfunctional, that is healthy, grounded and happy. On the flipside, that could be really boring to watch! [Laughs] Everybody’s really interested to see if Callie and Arizona are going to end up being the happy lesbian couple that nobody really pays attention to—because they’re happy in the corner. I hope they will continue to challenge the relationship because it’s more interesting and more real.
