Alex Landi joins cast of “Grey’s Anatomy” as the long-running medical drama’s first gay male surgeon

Exciting news today from TV Line:

ABC’s long-running Grey’s Anatomy has hired newcomer Alex Landi to join the cast as Dr. Nico Kim, the series’ first gay male surgeon.

Landi — who is half Korean and half Italian — will kick off his recurring stint this fall.

Grey’s Anatomy, heading into its 15th season, has had no shortage of prominent LGBT characters over the years — most notably bisexual Callie Torres and lesbian Arizona Robbins, played by former cast members Sara Ramirez and Jessica Capshaw, respectively — but few of them have been men. And, of course, none of them have been surgeons.
