Alex Landi will play Dr. Nico Kim on the ABC drama's upcoming 15th season.

Help, doc! We’ve fallen hard!

Scrubbing up behind hunks like Patrick Dempsey and Eric Dane, Alex Landi is joining the cast of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.

The Shondaland series will welcome the newcomer to the upcoming 15th season as Dr. Nico Kim, the show’s first gay male surgeon, TVLine reports.

Born in New York City, Landi, who is half Korean and half Italian, takes on the recurring role beginning this fall. No additional details are known about Dr. Kim or the length of his residency at Grey Sloan Memorial Hospital.

Landi, a model who has appeared as a juror on Bull, will also star in the upcoming film Broken Land.

Grey’s Anatomy has featured numerous LGBTQ characters, most notably bisexual orthopedic surgeon Dr. Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) and lesbian pediatric surgeon Dr. Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw).

Last season Candis Cayne played a trans patient seeking vaginoplasty surgery, and trans actor Alex Blue Davis has appeared as trans intern Casey Parker.

ABC previously announced the season 15 addition of Chris Carmack, who played gay country singer Will Lexington on Nashville, and returning guest star Jeff Perry, who played gay White House villain Cyrus Beene on Scandal.

Grey’s Anatomy returns September 27 on ABC with a special two-hour episode.
