See the First Photos of Geena Davis on 'Grey's Anatomy' (Exclusive)
Plus, find out the season premiere title — and who she's working with
ABC's Grey's Anatomy is poised to welcome the former commander in chief.
Little is known about Davis' role other than that the Thelma & Louise alum will have a major recurring arc in season 11 as a surgeon at the hospital previously known as Seattle Grace.
Below, Davis' character makes her Grey's Anatomy debut in the season 11 premiere, "I Must Have Lost It on the Wind," which takes its title from Elton John's song of the same name.
Judging from the photos below, Davis' character could be connected to Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw).
"It's going to be revealed very quickly that it is a Band-Aid," she said. "It's going to open up the opportunity for them to finally explore everything that's wrong and whether or not they should be together at all or whether or not they want to be together at all. Their entire relationship, by the way, has been a series of Band-Aids. It's heartbreaking and it's beautiful and it's either you choose to fix all the Band-Aids that are wrong and be together or you move on. But it's a choice of commitment and we're going to watch them explore that stuff."
Davis (who played the title role in Commander in Chief) will join new series regular Caterina Scorsone and returning guest star Kate Burton (as Ellis Grey) as part of Grey's Anatomy's 11th season, which will be the drama's first without star Sandra Oh. Davis' addition comes after the series also parted ways with Gaius Charles (Shane) and Tessa Ferrer (Leah).
