Davis will guest star on Grey’s Anatomy as a surgeon hitting the operating rooms of Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital, reported Variety. Details are scarce on Davis’ character, but the actress’s guest role is purported to be a major one.

ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy is bringing out the big guns for its 11th season, casting Academy Award winner Geena Davis in a recurring role.

It is not too shabby in what the Northeast (New England) part of the United States has produced in terms of past and present actors/actresses making their show business dreams come true. Film careers can be a lot like ice cubes–they start out solid and cool but if you sit around in stagnation your efforts and hard work can melt away before one’s very eyes. Certainly no one can accuse this talented crop of thespians of being one-hit wonders on the big screen. After all, one does not become a recipient of an Academy Award by just sheer luck and charitable fortune.
As a native Bostonian and life long New Englander, I felt compelled to spotlight those Massachusetts-born and bred actors from the same region that had ultimate success on the big screen in winning the Oscar for their acting achievement and contribution to the motion picture industry. »

What is your favorite film and why?
My favorite film of mine would have to be Romancing the Stone because I really like how Joan Wilder changes. Change is what attracts me to a character and because I loved shooting in South America - it was like going home.
I had the pleasure of seeing you and Mr McDiarmid last Friday and I thought it was such a rare »

Exclusive: Management 360 has signed Geena Davis, who’s one of those actors you could see getting a second career wind. Davis, who at last blush was vying to shoot arrows for her country as an Olympics archer, won her Oscar for The Accidental Tourist, and her other credits include Thelma And Louise, A League Of Their Own, Beetlejuice, The Fly and Stuart Little. Things went awry with Cutthroat Island and Long Kiss Goodnight, though the latter was a pretty darn good B-movie from a $4 million Shane Black script. She was most recently seen in the Lake Bell-directed In A World, and the Australian indie Accidents Happen. She remains with CAA. »
