Grey's Anatomy spoilers reveal that actress Jennifer Grey has been cast on the ABC medical drama in a mysterious new role.
According to a Thursday, Dec. 13 report by the Daily Mail, Jennifer Grey will join the Grey's Anatomy cast in the second half of the season. The actress, who is best known for her role in the iconic '80s cult classic film Dirty Dancing, where she co-starred with Patrick Swayze, is currently staying mum on the role.
Although it is being reported that Grey will have a role on the series, the details are being kept under wraps. Some rumors suggest that the actress may be playing Jo's estranged mother, as actress Camilla Luddington did confirm that fans would meet her parents at some point this season.
The actress last appeared on an ABC show when she competed on the network's 11th season of Dancing With the Stars eight years ago. Grey partnered with professional dancer Derek Hough, and ended up winning the entire season, taking home the coveted mirror ball trophy with her partner.
Grey's Anatomy is currently in its 15th season, but opened to its lowest number of viewers ever for a season premiere back in September following a less-than-dramatic season finale, where fan favorite characters April and Arizona both left Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.
