Gaius Charles

Gaius Charles (Friday Night Lights alum) has joined the cast of Shonda Rhimes' long-running medical drama series Grey's Anatomy, although details on his role aren't available yet, as they are reportedly being "worked out," says TVLine, adding that he'll likely be playing a young doctor at Seattle Grace, which saw 2 major staff losses recently.

Gaius Charles’ resume also includes stints on Pan-Am, NCIS and Necessary Roughness - all in the last year.

He also has a few big screen credits, including parts in Takers and Salt.

    Hmm congrats to the bro. Im not a big Greys watcher. But I think Ive noticed something: the show hasnt featured GOOD LOOKING black actresses. Nothing against the sister on there but she isnt eye candy. Many of the white actresses are considered attractive. Theres been a couple of attractive brothers on there. Now lets do sisters.

    Yes talent is of supreme importance. Good actors can be pretty too.

    There have been other black female doctors, they're just not eye candy. Right now, Debbie Allen recurring as a renowned doctor, mother to Jesse Williams, and love interest to James Pickens. Don't know why they need to be hot when so few of the women on the show are in the first place (several butter & horsefaces in the group). I will take a good actor over "eye candy" any day; keep the Paula Pattons, Gugu Mbatha Ras, Rochelle Aytes, Michael Micheles, Jennifer Freemans, and other acting lightweights off my screen please. I'm starting to understand what you look for in an actor first!

    I thought as much. The show needs more than one black female doctor. Theres like 5756 white ones. Each with a story. And yes she should be eye candy too.

    They're all young, so Tessa, Camille, and Jurnee were patients, Amber was an intern or med student.

    Ooooh nice! Were they doctors or residents though?

  • Akimbo | July 17, 2012 4:56 PM

    For the most part, I didn't know their names, but off the top of my head Tessa Thompson did two eps as the Chief's niece and the role was later reprised by Camille Winbush. Jurnee Smollett did an arc as well and Amber Stevens was a guest star.

    Can you please give me some quick names if you remember? Were they series regulars or at least recurring for more than one episode like Jesse Williams and Jason George?

  • Akimbo | July 17, 2012 11:05 AM

    You'd have to watch the show; they've got beaucoup guest stars coming in and out of the hospital, many of them black, and among them are the eye candy you seek. Anyway, particularly since the departure of Katherine Heigl, and even more so with that of Chyler Leigh, the men of the series are more attractive than the women across the board. Shonda & the network know who they're catering to.

    God bless Miss Rhimes for continuing to give black people work but even I have to say maybe it is time she hired more Asian actors and actresses for her MEDICAL drama/soap opera. I mean it is kinda like doing a TV show about pro football (USA version) and having lonly one black cast member. And I guess Gaius is another promising black actor to suffer from having an agent who is unable to get him any real gigs other than TV. Then again I guess the the few fluff supporting roles in Hollywood films for black actors are all being taken by Anthony Mackie. It is kind of a step down for Gaius to go from the quality of "Friday Night Lights" (even if it was overrated) to the melodrama of Grey's. At least Grey's has a bigger audience but one can't expect the show to be around for much longer.
