Scott Foley to join True Blood

True BloodGrey’s Anatomy actor Scott Foley is to join the cast of True Blood.

TVLine reports the actor will appear in the season four finale in a major role which will likely carry over to the show’s fifth season. As yet True Blood hasn’t been renewed for a fifth year but it seems almost certain that it will – we simply can’t imagine that it won’t! Foley will lay Patrick, an old army buddy of Terry (Todd Lowe) who arrives in Bon Temp to visit him.

Foley has most recently been seen in ABC’s medical drama Grey’s Anatomy as Henry Burton and his other notable roles include Cougar Town, The Unit, Scrubs, Dawson’s Creek and Scream 3.
