Chandra Wilson returns to “Grey’s,” on both sides of the camera

All together now: Whew!

EW.com reported welcome news for Grey’s Anatomy fans yesterday: Chandra Wilson has signed on the dotted line to continue playing Dr. Miranda Bailey.

I’m not sure why Shonda Rimes and company waited so long to finalize the deal, since Dr. Bailey is the most entertaining character at Seattle Grace. I mean, please — the woman brought “va-jay-jay” into our consciousness. The word, I mean.

Wilson also is about to become the first Grey’s cast member to direct an episode. No word yet on story details, but this will be the actress’ directorial debut. If Wilson directs anything like Bailey commands the hospital, we should be in for a treat.

The new season of Grey’s Anatomy premiers on September 24. If you want to refresh your memories of any Calzona scenes in the meantime, you can catch the last few episodes of Season 5 on Hulu.

In other Grey’s news, Ausiello asked Melissa George if she might return next season as Sadie Harris, given the fact that the show seems to have some openings for cast members.

“I don’t think so,” Melissa said. “I think she did so much damage that she needs to go.”

Since I can barely remember anything about Sadie, I guess it doesn’t take much.

That did get me to thinking, though. Now that we know who’s coming back to Grey’s Anatomy, who would make a good addition to the cast? Any ideas?
