Grey's Anatomy caught viewers off guard (sort of) by wrapping up the medical drama with a wedding the saw Izzie (Katherine Heigl) and Alex (Justin Chambers) tie the knot instead of Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey). Although Meredith and Derek have already taken their relationship further by declaring their own vows, some fans are still hoping to see the day when Meredith walks down the aisle. And word on the street is that casting directors are currently looking for actors to play guest roles for the season 6 premiere of Grey's Anatomy for what sounds like a possible wedding in the works.

Grey's Anatomy is always casting for guest stars and the season opener is no exception. One role, however, has caught spectators' eyes: Producers are looking for someone to play a Catholic priest in his 60s.
While this poses the question "could this mean that Meredith and Derek are finally getting married?," another theory has come to light. This could also mean that someone would be receiving last rights. Perhaps Dr. George O'Malley since his portrayer, T.R. Knight, is not returning next season? My money's on this one since Knight has already issued an official statement regarding his departure on the show.

"Leaving Grey's Anatomy was not an easy decision for me to make. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play this character and will miss my fellow cast and crew very much. I continue to wish them the very best, and wholeheartedly thank all of the fans who have supported me and the show with such passion and enthusiasm," Knight said.

Meanwhile, fans can expect more guest actors to grace Grey's Anatomy's season opener. Producers are also reportedly looking for "an 18-year-old male patient, Andy Smith, and his mother, Pam, for a two-episode arc, in addition to what appears to be a few foreign gals backpacking across America who end up in the hospital."

The season 6 premiere, which will be written by executive producer Krista Vernoff and directed by Ed Ornelas, of Grey's Anatomy is slated to begin production on Wednesday, July 15.
