'Grey's Anatomy' Firefighter Spinoff Casts Miguel Sandoval as its Captain

The firefighting spinoff of Grey's Anatomy has finally found its final leading role, tapping veteran actor Miguel Sandoval as the Captain Pruitt.

Sandoval is most well-known for his starring role in Medium, but he was also featured in Bad Judge and Dallas 2.0. Surprisingly, this is the second time the actor has been seen on a TV series about firefighters, as he had a prominent role in the short-live Fox drama, L.A. Firefighters.

Grey's Anatomy fans may also recognize Sandoval from his role in a 2012 episode of the series.

Jason George, who is currently featured on Grey's Anatomy, will depart to star in the untitled series. The cast of the new spinoff also includes Grey Damon, Jay Hayden, Okierete Onaodowan, Danielle Savre and Barrett Doss.
