Rhimes: Summer Glau to Greys’s Anatomy
According to the talented and always busy Shonda Rhimes, geek-fan favorite Summer Glau will have a guest role in an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season. This news is so conflicting for me. As a proud geek, I love Summer Glau. She does some of the best work in the weirdest shows, such as Firefly, Alphas, Chuck, Dollhouse, and The Sarah Connor Chronicles. And that’s just naming the ones I’ve seen. She’s the go-to girl for science fictiony type roles. So my question is: why Grey’s Anatomy?
Don’t get me wrong; Grey’s is great. If it weren’t it wouldn’t be on its eighth season! But it is strange to see her on a normal television show. I can barely even imagine her fans tuning it to see her; that’s how big of a departure this is for her. I would think it’s a misquote, but Rhimes posted the news right to her Twitter account, leaving very little room for error for this type of casting news. So she’s doing the part and I can’t say I’ll watch it. I don’t watch Grey’s and one person isn’t going to change that. Sure, some diehard Glau fans will catch the episode, but it won’t make a difference in viewer count. I’m 95% sure Glau’s casting had nothing to do with her geeky fanbase.
Now the problem with Twitter news is you have to limit your post to 140 characters. I think it goes without saying you can’t fit a lot of information in a single Tweet. Right now, we know nothing about who Glau will be playing, but not knowing is half the fun, right?
