Fall TV Preview

Exclusive: True Blood Hunk Bites Into Juicy Private Practice Role

A new man is about to enter Amelia’s life on ABC’s Private Practice — for better or perhaps for worse.

Wes Brown, whose TV credits include the role of True Blood‘s Luke McDonald and NBC’s Trauma, is joining the Thursday-night drama for a four-episode arc, TVLine has learned exclusively, playing Ryan, a handsome stranger who will figure into Amelia’s ongoing addiction storyline. And not necessarily in a good way.

Private Practice Scoop: Addison’s Got a Dirty Little Secret!

Private Practice boss Shonda Rhimes didn’t have to reach too far into her Rolodex to find Brown — he plays a soldier suspected of murder in the pilot for Scandal, her midseason “fixer” series starring Kerry Washington.

Private Practice premieres its new season on Sept. 29; Brown first appears in Episode 6.

  • ‘True Blood’ Hunk?

    You mean, “Hunk from a small role on True Blood comes to Private Practice”

    • I believe you are thinking of Mark Matkevich, who played Drue Valentine. They do look very much alike though.

  • I have followed this actor for awhile. He is VERY good. You all must not have been big followers of true blood, b/c I knew EXACTLY who they were talking about when I read this. And I am excited to see the handsome “lukinator” return to a big show for a new role!! I know this same actor will also be in a couple of new shows that I am looking forward to watching.. Heart of Dixie, and Scandal!! Can’t wait!
