Private Practice: Matt Long and Alfre Woodard Sign On For Season 6

It appears that the doctors of Private Practice will be welcoming two new cast members for appearances during season 6!

According to TV Guide, actor Matt Long has officially joined the cast of the Grey’s spin-off in a recurring role.  Best known for his portrayal of one of the title characters of Jack & Bobby, Long will be playing a new doctor at St. Ambrose hospital this coming season.  A new love interest for one of our cast members?  Or perhaps a rival?

Long’s credits also include The Deep End, Mad Men, and most recently an appearance on The Newsroom.

Also guest starring this season is Desperate Housewives alum Alfre Woodard.  The actress is slated to appear in a November episode of the drama, as Sam Bennett’s (Taye Diggs) mother.  Will the doc have engagement news to share?

Known for playing less-than-stable mothers on Desperate Housewives and True Blood, one can only hope that Woodard’s Private Practice role will be a bit more normal.  But then, after all, it wouldn’t be a Shonda Rhimes drama if she were, would it?

When Private Practice returns at the end of the month, two to three months will have passed since the finale, meaning that Addison (Kate Walsh) will have made her decision between Sam and Jake (Benjamin Bratt).  The drama will also deal with a farewell to Pete Wilder, as Tim Daly will not be returning for the show’s sixth season, as previously announced, and Kate Walsh’s exit after her final thirteen episodes with the series.

Season 6 of Private Practice premieres Tuesday, September 25th at 10/9c on ABC.
