Pete Wilder returns to TV... sort of Private Practice alum Tim Daly has joined the cast of The Mindy Project for a season 2 guest role. The news was tweeted by Switched at Birth's B.K. Cannon, saying that he's working with Tim, so we're guessing this is a two-for-one news item!
Tim Daly previously played the ill-fated Pete Wilder on Shonda Rhimes's Private Practice for five seasons, although his character technically debuted on Grey's Anatomy during PP's backdoor pilot. He should be right at home at the OB/GYN office The Mindy Project centers on; Pete was a holistic OB/GYN that practiced both Western and alternative medicine.
57-year-old Tim also starred in episodes of The Sopranos and Hawaii Five-O, and was a main castmember on Wings. In addition to his live action work, Tim has provided the voice of Superman in both the '90s Superman: The Animated Series and a handful of animated films.
What do you think of this casting news? Are you stoked to see Tim possibly birthin' some babies once again? Weigh in below!
