Grey's Anatomy

ABC/RON TOM

Yep it's true, McSteamy is back on the market.

As Eric Dane told me at the USA Weekend cover photo shoot, "I think this year he's going to find somebody." Could it be Callie (again)? What about Izzie?

I've got the latest word...

According to my sources, McSteamy's new love is not Izzie, who will be very much occupied elsewhere this year (more on that later). Callie is settling down with Hahn, Rose is leaving, Cristina and Meredith are hooking up with other doctors and Bailey wouldn't touch McSteamy with a 10-foot pole, so where does that leave the good Dr. Mark Sloan?

Quite possibly, it seems, with a new woman, if one recent Grey's Anatomy casting call for a guest star who may recur is to be trusted:

The eye-catching notice in question described this new character as a female patient in her late 20s or early 30s, but, most important of all, they are looking for "star names only," meaning someone with a recognizable face they could effectively splash all over billboards and TV ads because the character will be in the midst of a hot fling with one of their hot male leads...

One other note of interest, this character is "an empowered type A personality." In my humble opinion, this is good for two reasons:

  1. McSteamy loves those man-eaters, as evidenced by his crushes on Addy and Hahn
  2. This means that the new girl's nickname is a gimme: Little Miss Type A. Just like Reese Witherspoon's nickname, and now that I think about it, Reese would be perfect for the part. (Do it, Reese, do it!)

Now, my brainstorming aside, who should play Little Miss Type A? Post your picks in the comments, along with any questions you have for the Emmy nominees amongst the cast and I'll try to corral them for answers this Sunday on the red carpet!
