Private Practice Exclusive: A.J. Langer Has Eyes For [Spoiler Alert]

My So Called Life alumna A.J. Langer is joining Private Practice in a recurring role, TVLine has learned exclusively.

There’s just one problem: It’s anyone’s guess who she’s playing.

Her character, Erica. “will be someone from one of the Oceanside doctor’s pasts,” is all an ABC rep would say.

Perhaps Shonda Rhimes is staging an onscreen reunion between Langer and her former Eyes costar Tim Daly? It’s doubtful considering A) Pete is a widower and B) we already met a woman from his past in Season 2: Meg Porter (played by Jayne Brook).

A likelier scenario has Langer’s Erica sporting ties to Paul Adelstein’s Cooper, who’s now happily married to Charlotte.
