Justin Chambers, who plays the OG Grey’s character, isn’t leaving the show. But it doesn’t look like Chambers’ Alex be getting his old job as Head of Pediatric Surgery at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital back anytime soon. Why? That position will reportedly be filled by someone else, and soon.
Shameless alum Richard Flood has been cast in ABC’s flagship drama in the unenviable role of Alex’s replacement. We say unenviable because, c’mon. There will surely be resistance to someone other than Alex sliding into that role at Grey Sloan, especially considering the circumstances of his firing (along with Meredith Grey and Richard Webber for falsifying an insurance claim to save a little girl’s life). So, Flood’s new character Dr. Cormac Hayes will likely have his work cut out for him when it comes to winning over his peers.
