Finally, some real, solid news about Grey's Anatomy Season 9! Thanks to TVLine, we now know the name of a new cast member who will join the docs at Seattle Grace-Mercy West this fall.

Friday Night Lights alum Gaius Charles has been cast! The details of his part are still being worked out, but it is a recurring role, so he's probably either a new doc or a long-term patient. Given Teddy's (Kim Raver) departure and Lexie's (Chyler Leigh) death, our money is on the former.

Besides being super talented, Gaius is also super cute, which immediately makes us wonder if he might end up being someone's love interest. There aren't many unattached characters at the moment, but perhaps sparks will fly between April (Sarah Drew) and Gaius's character.

Miss Grey’s? Us too. Luckily the show will return to Thursdays at 9 p.m. with all-new episodes in the fall on ABC.
