Here’s some news that should comfort Izzie “I have sex with ghosts” Stevens: This January, she won’t be the only crazy person roaming the halls of Seattle Grace.

Sources confirm to me exclusively that Eric Stoltz has been cast as a serial killer in need of immediate medical attention on Grey’s Anatomy. The actor and future star of Sci Fi’s Caprica, who proved himself to be a believable sociopath in Pulp Fiction and Killing Zoe, is on board for three episodes.

I’m told Stoltz’ story, which takes a surprising turn around the second episode, will raise a myriad of thorny ethical questions for McDreamy and Co.

Stoltz didn’t have to travel far for his audition: He directed several episodes of Grey’s this season, including the Nov. 13 installment, “These Ties That Bind.”

In other Grey’s news, did you know that Jessica Capshaw is scrubbing in as a pediatric surgeon named Arizona Roberts for a multi-episode arc? If not, you just scored a bonus scoop. Congrats!
