Lowell Lands Grey’s Spinoff Role


Chris Lowell has landed a coveted role in the pilot for ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff, reports Variety.

The actor currently plays Piz on the CW drama “Veronica Mars.” He also starred in ABC’s short-lived but well-reviewed “Life as We Know It.”

Creator-executive producer Shonda Rhimes is keeping the name and description of Lowell’s character secret. Mark Gordon and Betsy Beers are executive producing what ABC Television Studio is calling an “enhanced two-hour episode.”

“Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff stars Kate Walsh, reprising her role as Dr. Montgomery.
