‘Grey’s Anatomy’ Casts Alex Landi As First Gay Male Surgeon Character On Show
Grey’s Anatomy continued efforts to diversify its cast on Friday, this time by adding a gay male surgeon character.
According to several reports, Alex Landi will play Dr. Nico Kim on the show’s 15th season, which will premiere on ABC on Sept. 27. Grey’s Anatomy, created by Shonda Rhimes, is ABC’s longest-running primetime drama series. The season premiere of the ABC series will be a two-hour episode.
The show has already featured two LGBTQ characters: Callie Torres, a bisexual doctor played by Sara Ramirez, and Dr. Arizona Robbins, a lesbian physician played by Jessica Capshaw.
Landi, an actor of Korean descent, previously played a jury member on the CBS series Bull in 2017. No details on his character from Grey’s Anatomy are known, and it also remains uncertain how many episodes he will appear in.
