NBC’s ‘Revolution’ snags ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ alum Kim Raver

Kim Raver has just booked her first major TV role since leaving “Grey’s Anatomy” last season, and let’s just say that she has signed on to be a part of a “Revolution“-ary new show.

According to a report from TVLine, Raver is joining the much-anticipated new drama series from J.J. Abrams and Eric Kripke, and will play a part that is still very much shrouded in mystery. The one thing that we do know for sure? This is not going to be just a one-off guest spot, and her part is very important to the story of the show as a whole.

While Raver is understandably best known for her role as Teddy on the long-running ABC medical drama (as she was there for over 50 episodes), she does have experience as a part of high-concept serials. She played a part most on the short-lived series “The Nine” over on ABC, and also showed off some chops in action when it comes to action courtesy of “24.”

“Revolution” is developing quite a habit already of scoring actors from other notable franchises. The show already has “Breaking Bad” alum Giancarlo Esposito as a series regular, and they also have landed “Lost” alum Elizabeth Mitchell for a significant role of her own.

“Revolution” will officially launch on Monday, September 17 at 10:00 p.m. Eastern following a new episode of “The Voice,” but if you want to catch the show a little bit early, NBC has posted the full pilot online. (You can see it below.) We also have our advance review already published over at the link here.

What do you think about Raver’s casting, and what sort of role do you want to see her play on the show? We want to hear some more of your thoughts!
