Grey’s Anatomy Recast Kaley Cuoco Role

April 23, 2009

Well that was quick! Kaley Cuoco’s role has been recast already. Such a shame she wasn’t able to take on the job since she was a fan of the show :(

It appears the case of Kaley Cuoco’s disappearing Grey’s Anatomy guest stint has been cracked!Although the actress’ rep says an unforeseen “publicity commitment” forced the Big Bang Theory star to back out of a top-secret appearance on Grey’s Anatomy‘s May 14 season finale, multiple sources now tell me that it was her current employer, CBS, that put the kibosh on the deal. An Eye spokesperson couldn’t be reached for comment, but as one insider explains, “They didn’t want one of their biggest stars appearing on one of ABC’s biggest shows.”

As a result, Grey’s has tapped former O.C. starlet Shannon Lucio (she played Caleb’s illegitimate daughter, Lindsay) to fill Cuoco’s shoes.
Still unknown: Who the heck is she playing? Some of you initially (and understandably) speculated that, based on Cuoco’s resemblance to Katherine Heigl, perhaps the character is a relative of Izzie’s. That possibility seems less likely with the casting of Lucio… or does it? ABC isn’t spilling.

Kaley Cuoco Pulls Out Of Grey’s Anatomy!

April 23, 2009

The mystery surrounding Kaley Cuoco’s top-secret role in Grey’s Anatomy‘s May 14 season finale has been solved! She’s playing… no one!A spokesperson for the Big Bang Theory star just released the following statement: “Due to unforeseen scheduling conflicts on behalf of The Big Bang Theory, Kaley Cuoco regrettably will be unable to guest star on the season finale of Grey’s Anatomy. Kaley is a big fan of Grey’s Anatomy and hopes to work with them in the future.”

Is there more to this story than meets the eye? You tell me: BBT wrapped production for the season last Tuesday and Cuoco clearly told us that she wasn’t needed on the Grey’s set until this week. Sounds a little fishy, right? Let me put my detective hat on and see what I can suss out.

THIS JUST IN: Cuoco’s rep just e-mailed to say, “To clarify, it was a publicity related commitment, not a production conflict.”

Another Guest Star Cast For Season Finale

April 17, 2009

The list of awesome guest stars appearing in Grey’s Anatomy’s two-hour finale on May 14 just got a little longer. At last night’s Big Bang Theory event at PaleyFest ’09, leading lady Kaley Cuoco revealed to EW exclusively that she’s Seattle Grace-bound.

“I am working on Grey’s Anatomy next week,” she confirmed. “It is a big ol’ secret. I have no clue what I am doing. I swear on my life that I have no idea what I am playing because it is the finale and they are keeping it under wraps until the last possible moment.”

Adding to the mystery, Cuoco said she didn’t even have to audition for the top-secret part. “They called me directly last week and asked if I would do a part on the finale episode,” she explains. “I didn’t hesitate because I am a fan of the show, and it’s a huge show so it’s probably good for the career, too. And I haven’t been able to do any drama in a long time.

“My guess is that I will be a patient of some kind,” she continues. “I’m practicing my scared-sad-I’m-dying face.”
