‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Firefighter Spinoff Adds Four More Cast Members
The “Grey’s Anatomy” firefighter spinoff is heating up!
The upcoming new ABC drama has cast four more actors to join Jason George (who will play his “Grey’s” character, Dr. Ben Warren) and Jaina Lee Ortiz (“Rosewood”).
Playing firefighters are Grey Damon (“Friday Night Lights”), Okieriete Onaodowan (Broadway’s “Hamilton”), Danielle Savre (“Too Close To Home”) and Barrett Doss (“Marvel’s Iron Fist”).
The 10-episode spinoff follows a group of Seattle firefighters, from the captain to the newest recruit, as these brave men and women risk their lives and their hearts both in the line of duty and off the clock.
The lead characters will be introduced in an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” sometime this fall, as a kind of backdoor pilot ahead of its midseason debut. Ben, of course, is already well-known to the show’s fans. His role in the spinoff was foreshadowed in last season’s finale, which ended with a devastating fire at the hospital.
