An Elementary favorite returns, Big Love star Patrick Fabian lands a recurring role on Grey's Anatomy. Comedian Roseanne Barr will guest star on The Millers and Grimm gets 80's heartthrob C. Thomas Howell. Read on for more casting news on Grimm, Elementary and an old favorite sitcom couple reunites on The Neighbors.

Rhys Ifans returns to Elementary as Mycroft for the show's last four episodes of the season and it's going to be big. According to TVGuide, Rhys' return will involve a Mycroft-centric storyline that will round out the season. Could there be another fling in store of Mycroft and Joan? 

West Wing alum Ron Canda is also headed to Elementary. A report by TVGuide reveals that Canda will play a Brooklyn school teacher who is all about helping the community. His mission is to keep the kids in his area out of gangs and off drugs. In the episode, which does not have a set airdate but will be in late March, Ron's character will butt heads with Detective Bell. Who will win this battle the detective or teacher? 

Former Secret Life of The American Teenager star Philip Anthony-Rodriguez
joins the cast of NBC's Grimm. According to TVLine, he will play Marcus, man on a mission for Prince Viktor & Co and will be around for a few episodes. Marcus is Verrat and has a big task that will affect the royals. Phillip will make his mysterious debut in episode 17 titled "Synchronicity". Sounds like quite the character change from his days on The Secret Life

Another big name is headed to Grimm as well. TVGuide is reporting that C. Thomas Howell is set to make a guest appearance on the hit sci-fi show this season. Howell made a name for himself back in the 1980's as a teen sensation starring in films like The Outsiders and Secret Admirer. Can't wait to see him on Grimm

It is a mini Full House reunion on The Neighbors when Candace Cameron Bure and Scott Weinger guest star on the season finale of the ABC comedy. Entertainment Weekly confirms that the actors who played teen lovebirds on Full House will play visitors to the alien community. They may not be DJ and Steve but seeing Scott and Candace together will be amazing. 

Roseanne Barr will showcase her comedic talent on TV once again. This time she will guest star on the CBS show The Millers. Barr will play the super critical mother of one of Nathan's Will Arnett, co-workers played by guest star Andy Richter. TVLine broke the news that Roseanne will return to the medium that made her a star in the 90's. Putting Barr, Arnett and Margo Martindale all on screen together sounds the perfect comedy trifecta. 

A new doctor is checking in to Grey Sloan Memorial. Patrick Fabian joins Grey's Anatomy as a pediatric surgeon, TVGuide reports. The role will be recurring but in true Shonda Rhimes fashion details of the character are being kept under wraps. Perhaps he will be a little competition in the pediatric area for Alex. Whatever his character is up to or all about one thing is for sure, he will make a great addition to the show.
