When Grey’s Anatomy returns for its 15th season with a two-hour special on Thursday September 27 (8/7c), there will be another new face joining the cast in a recurring role.

Alex Landi, a relative newcomer, had been cast in the role of Dr. Nico Kim, the series’ first gay male surgeon character.  While “Grey’s” has had LGBT representation throughout its run with several characters including: Callie Torres, who was bisexual and Arizona Robbins, who was a lesbian, very few have been men, and none of have been in a key surgeon role.

According to TV Line, who broke the casting news, Land is s half Korean and half Italian and while ABC confirmed the casting they did not provide any additional details about Dr. Kim’s story, or how long he will be in story.

In addition, to his acting, Landi is a trained martial arts expert.

So does this mean they will also have to bring on another new male character to be his love interest – since everybody on Grey’s Anatomy has to have one.

I don’t recall any existing male member of the cast who has identified as anything other than 666% heterosexual. I’m going to guess that one of them suddenly identifies as bisexual, even though they never showed any interest in dudes before.

Not that these things don’t actually happen in the real mortal world, but for a bunch of doctors in Seattle, you would think they would be a bit more accepting of themselves and/or others. Especially if you are familiar with the city and know that most of the hospitals are located fairly close to the most LGBT friendly part of town.

EDIT: now that I think about it, there’s a single gay fireman on the spinoff Station 19. Maybe they will pair the new doctor up with him, so they have more excuses for crossovers between the two shows (shamelessly stealing the strategy from the “Chicago” shows on NBC.)

To be fair, Grey’s used to have crossovers with its earlier spin-off, Private Practice.
