Cutie-patootie Justin Chambers is making a welcome return to acting.
The former Grey’s Anatomy star will portray screen icon Marlon Brando in Paramount+’s limited series The Offer, based on producer Al Ruddy’s experience of making Francis Ford Coppola’s 1972 classic The Godfather.
He’ll join Miles Teller as Ruddy and Dan Fogler as Coppola in the 10-episode event series.
Chambers, an original Grey’s Anatomy cast member and a fan favorite, left the hit medical drama in late 2019 after 15 years on the show and 350 episodes playing Dr. Alex Karev.
He said at the time:
“There’s no good time to say goodbye to a show and character that’s defined so much of my life for the past 15 years,” Chambers told Deadline at the time. “For some time now, however, I have hoped to diversify my acting roles and career choices. And, as I turn 50 and am blessed with my remarkable, supportive wife and five wonderful children, now is that time.”
Justin as Marlon… I wonder how he’ll pull it off.
