The “Station 19” cast is growing.

Dermot Mulroney has been cast in a multiple-episode arc for Season 2 of the “Grey’s Anatomy” spinoff, an ABC spokesperson told TheWrap. Mulroney will play Ryan Tanner (Alberto Frezza)’s father in the firefighter drama.

Here is ABC’s official character description:

“Dermot will be playing a character who’s back in town after an extended leave – much to the surprise of pretty much everyone who has ever known him. He’s sharp witted, very perceptive, wickedly smart… and he can charm his way into and out of almost any situation.  He hasn’t always been on the right side of the law, which really affects him… especially in the eyes of his son, police officer Ryan Tanner!”

The star of “My Best Friend’s Wedding” is also starring in Amazon’s upcoming “Homecoming” alongside Julia Roberts and will be seen in Hulu’s “Flesh & Blood.” He’s also had roles on “Shameless” and the recently-wrapped “New Girl.”

Mulroney will be joining Frezza in addition to “Grey’s Anatomy” alum Jason George, as well as Jaina Lee Ortiz, Grey Damon, Barrett Doss, Jay Hayden, Okieriete Onaodowan, Danielle Savre and Miguel Sandoval.

“Station 19” is produced by ABC Studios. Showrunner Stacy McKee executive produces with Shonda Rhimes and Betsy Beers. Paris Barclay is producing director and also executive produces.

“Station 19” returns to ABC for Season 2 on Thursday, Oct. 4.
