Skylar Astin will appear in a recurring role on Grey's Anatomy in season 18. The long-running medical drama, developed by Shonda Rhimes, first aired on ABC in 2005. It has followed Dr. Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) on her path from intern to Chief of General Surgery throughout the course of the series. The core cast of the show has changed a lot over the years, however Pompeo and her co-stars Chandra Wilson and James Pickens Jr. have featured in every episode.
Season 18 of Grey's Anatomy, which is currently running, premiered on September 30, 2021. This season has already seen some huge cast changes, such as the return of You's Scott Speedman after a one-episode cameo many seasons ago and a major character departure on episode 9 last week. The return of Kate Walsh as Dr. Addison Montgomery, who hadn't seen since Grey's Anatomy season 8, has perhaps been the season's greatest news.
According to Variety, the Grey's Anatomy season 18 cast is growing by one. Skylar Astin will appear as Todd Eames, the brother of a pregnant patient, in a recurring role on the show. The lovely environmental sciences PhD, who will make her debut on the March 25 episode "Put the Squeeze on Me," might be positioned as a new romantic interest who causes a kink in Camilla Luddington's character Jo Wilson's love life.

Skylar Astin, an experienced stage performer, first made his name onscreen as Anna Kendrick's love interest in the 2012 a cappella comedic smash Pitch Perfect and its first sequel. Since then, the actor has been in a number of films, although he has lately shifted his focus to television. After a stint playing Greg (the role previously portrayed by Santino Fontana) on the musical romantic comedy show Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, he stayed in the musical genre to appear in both seasons of NBC's Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist along with The Roku Channel's follow-up special Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas.
Although the actor has left his imprint on the television scene in recent years, Grey's Anatomy will undoubtedly be his most popular non-musical program. Fans of Astin know that he has the versatility to provide a straight acting performance, but it will be fascinating to see how he performs in a program that is substantially more serious and tragic than what he has been doing previously. To create the gravity required for the medical drama, he will almost probably have to lean on his theatrical experience.
