I’ll cop to being a co-viewer of Grey’s Anatomy (mostly at the behest of my wife, Jenn) but it is an entertaining show.
While the music used to be a lot better, and there have certainly been more cringe-inducing, shark-jumping moments as the melodrama has wound its way through 6 seasons (and a spin-off), I do enjoy seeing a new cast of characters joining the ensemble every season.
Jenn & I were also fairly devout viewers (fans is too strong a term) of Dawson’s Creek. Early WB shows were like Crack and Dawson & Company were the biggest pushers. This explains my still-lingering attraction to Joey Potter (aka Mrs. Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes).
One of the better characters in that series was Gretchen Witter played by Sasha Alexander. She was a good older sister counterpoint to the delinquent Pacey and was a nice non-Joey love interest for Dawson.
Ok. I’m far to familiar and invested in the fictional lives of the people in the Dawson-verse. Backing away from the keyboard now.
Anyhow, I just figured that Grey’s Arizona (Jessica Capshaw) and Dawson’s Gretchen (Sasha Alexander) looked (and sounded) very similar.
Hence the post.
|Sasha Alexander||Jessica Capshaw|
|Date of Birth||May 17, 1973||August 9, 1976|
|Height||5′ 7″||5′ 5″|
|Television Drama||Dawson’s Creek, where her character slept with Dawson (even though she played his best friend’s older sister).||Grey’s Anatomy, where she plays the lesbian lover of Callie Torres|
Full Disclosure: Sasha Alexander stars in the new TNT Series Rizzoli & Isles (premiering July 12th). Since I work for TNT I figured I’d share.
