Michael Ausiello wasn't just the bearer of bad news yesterday. He countered the sad T.R. Knight news with some truly fantastic scoop: Jessica Capshaw will be back for a full season of Grey's Anatomy as lesbian Dr. Arizona Robbins!
Via The Ausiello Files:
Finally, some good news for poor, lovelorn Callie: Grey's Anatomy has officially promoted her on-screen leading lady, Jessica Capshaw, to a full-fledged series regular, sources confirm to me exclusively.
The news hardly comes as a surprise. Last month, series creator Shonda Rhimes all but signed off on Capshaw's promotion when I interviewed her after the finale. "I love Jessica Capshaw," she gushed. "And when I say love I mean love. She couldn't be a more wonderful person, and I feel like the chemistry Arizona and Callie have feels like the Meredith and Derek chemistry to me. I find them delightful to watch."
Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) fans rejoice! After having her heart broken by George O'Mally and Erica Hahn, our favorite bisexual orthopedic surgeon will be getting a steady love interest! Of course, this being Grey's Anatomy, relationships are never smooth sailing, are they?
