The drama has a few lonely ladies in need of lovin’, so whose heart will he heal? With Amelia on the mend, perhaps the  young doc is her best chance at finally finding a healthy relationship? Or might he romance the recently widowed Violet? And most importantly, what do you think of his longer ‘do?

Check out the gallery below and then hit the comments with your thoughts.

    • I typically like long hair but his looks absolutely ridiculous.

  • Maybe it’s because I’ve not seen him with short hair but I’m diggin the long locks (and I normally dislike long hair). He’s a super hottiepants!

  • Not a fan of the long hair, but I am a fan of him, so it’ll be great to see him on PP. I’d love to see him romance Amelia.

  • I was totally going to stop watching, but he is awesome. Loved him in Jack & Bobby. I will hang in a bit longer.

  • Yikes! Look who’s back in photo number 3! This just made the ‘missing child’ storyline a whole lot scarier!

  • Its Sheldon’s patient from the second episode! He appears to be a patient in the ER.

  • Buddy needs a haircut.
    He looks much more delightful with short hair – not to mention far more professional and sophisticated.

  • Love Matt Long! He was great in The Deep End, a one-season wonder from a few years back. I think he’d be a nice match for Amelia. I’m not a fan of the long hair, though. It makes him look shorter, I think.

  • That hair is just wrong. It’s a shame since he looks really good with short hair.

  • Maybe its part of the storyline, nobody cares about him, and as soon as he cuts his hair, Amelia is all over him

  • Love Matt Long. But that hair tho…

  • It’s time for Amelia to be happy, preppy, annoyingly cheery again! <3

  • Should be interesting to have him on the show. I like that he’ll be taking over Pete’s role as an ER Dr. Also hope that he becomes involved with Amelia. She does need a happy ending already especially if this will be the last season of PP.
    I see the lady from Martin and My Wife and Kids will be a patient… She’s always a hoot.

  • Oh yes! Pic 3 has Sheldon’s patient who had thoughts of sleeping with a young child. Makes sense why Sheldon fears the worst.
    Carter Macintyre is seriously good. He play a weird almost cheesy guardian angel in Drop Dead Diva and her a creepy would be paedophile. Gonna be an interesting ep all round. Now Violet just needs to not mess it up being all annoying…

  • I don’t like the long hair and please, let’s just leave Violet alone for a while. Let her grieve.

  • I hope he will be involved with Amelia

  • Matt is a great looking guy, even if he were bald. It’s exciting to see him looking more mature and as handsome as ever—-and he is a superb actor. I am sure he will make PP even better. I love the show!

  • He has amazing beautiful hair and it suits him really nicely!!
