Grey's Anatomy is adding 10 ccs of hunk to its set, stat.

Wilmer Valderrama is joining the cast of ABC's long-running drama, E! News has confirmed. The That 70's Show star will play the role of Kyle Diaz in a multiple-episode arc that will begin in April. Par for the course in Shondaland, details about the character are being kept under wraps, so let the speculation begin! Is he the latest patient to check into Sloan Grey Memorial with a problem that can't be easily solved in just one episode? Or might he be a suitor for Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo)? Time will only tell.

Variety first reported Valderrama's casting news.

Valderrama has been busy as of late. Aside from his new gig on Grey's, he also co-stars on El Rey Network's From Dusk Till Dawn, which has been renewed for a third season. He also co-starred on Fox's short-lived Minority Report, which premiered last fall.

Whether or not he's the one who date Meredith, we do know the titular doc is wading back into the dating scene following Derek's death. In a recent interview with Cosmo, Pompeo shared her excitement over the development in Mer's love life. We're moving toward Meredith dating again, so everyone has to get ready for it," she said. "I can tell you that I've shot a few scenes, although I don't know where they're going to go, but I have shot a few scenes, and I'm very happy and excited with the way this is unfolding. It's exciting for Meredith, and it's some happiness, some light. I hope we get to keep going to down that path."

Grey's Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. on ABC.
