If laughter really is the best medicine, he just might pull through. Sam Page has been cast by Grey’s Anatomy in the recurring role of Sam Sutton, a new patient who, though seriously injured, still has his sense of humor, our sister site Variety reports.
The actor, a veteran of The Bold Type and Mad Men, will make his first appearance in the Thursday, May 4, episode. His character, an Air Force pilot, is dealing with trauma in the aftermath of a base-jumping accident. But he remains quite the charmer, ABC hastens to note. So perhaps he could catch the eye of Jo, who still isn’t with Link (despite the fact that they both really want to be with each other!), or Jules, who insists that she and fellow resident Blue are just having sex, not embarking on a relationship. (Sure, Jan.)
The logline for Page’s episode, “Come Fly With Me,” reveals that Chris Carmack’s Link will be struggling “with his own self-doubt as he preps for a massive surgery.” Who could blame him, considering that he’s become the most hated man in Seattle after football star Tank died on his operating table?
Grey’s Anatomy was recently renewed for Season 20 with executive producer Meg Marinis stepping in for showrunner Krista Vernoff. Season 19’s finale, a two-hour affair directed by Kevin McKidd (hour one) and Debbie Allen (hour two), airs Thursday, May 18, at 9/8. It will mark Ellen Pompeo’s first guest spot on the show since leaving her series-regular role of Meredith Grey in February.
What say you? Could you see Page throwing sparks with anyone at Grey Sloan? Hit the comments with your suggestions.
I would prefer he be a permanent addition to the cast as a new doctor. The cast is seriously lacking in that McDreaminess/Steaminess factor. Would be fun to have some of that back!
Agreed…love Sam Page & can’t wait! 🔥
I love this guy. Glad he’ll be recurring. It would be even better if he became a regular somehow.
I miss Bold Type. Acting was excellent. Chemistry amongst the leads was amazing.
Hey now, he could charm Levi! We don’t know – let’s not just default that he must be straight.
Please THIS ! But I think Levi train is heading to nurseland…
btw, why not Amelia or Teddy ?
How could he need Jo, who works in OB ?
It doesn’t say he needs her as a doctor, it just says “catches her eye” because she’s not with Link
Agree! The hiring and letting go of actors on this series never fails to astound me. They
consistently miss…or miscalculate
I wonder if the character’s last name is a shout-out to the Bold Type. Would have loved if he’d been cast as a new doctor though, he’s definitely the dreamy type of addition the show needs.
So this is the new Denny Duquette? And Dr. Jules will cut his …well I would say any other wire tham the infamous Lvad one LOL ..seems like they keep recycling things this season
I hope not! I hated the Denny storyline!! And hated him & Izzy together.
Why not? Sam Page turns up everywhere eventually. This sounds like a Denny or Henry character. I love both of them so this sounds like something that worked well in the past that should be repeated.
Ugh. I hate this guy. He treated Joan so poorly on Mad Men. Joan was the best.
You actually hate Sam Page or you hate the character he played on Mad Men? There’s a difference really…
He was on Scandal too!
I remember him as the stone fox from Popular and David DeCoteau gay softcore horror movies like The Brotherhood.
I think it’s time for Grey’s Anatomy to end. I have been so bored with season 19, that I have not watched it since it came back from break.
So a show, that you don’t watch, should end?!
