Zimmer will play Dr. Cahill, a confident, self-possessed and laser-focused professional with a wicked sense of humor and appear in at least four episodes of ABC’s Shonda Rhimes drama.
She’s scheduled to make her Grey’s debut in episode 12, tentatively slated to air in late January.
The actress, who most recently guest starred on NBC’s freshman comedy The New Normal, has a major role in David Fincher’s upcoming Netflix drama House of Cards. She’s with UTA and Sweeney Entertainment.
