Granted, I’m using the word recast loosely here, but Grey’s Anatomy has tapped Angel‘s J. August Richards and Cupid‘s Sarah Paulson to play younger, circa ’82 versions of Richard and Ellis in the Feb. 18 episode.

The flashback-heavy hour, appropriately titled “Time Warp,” will shed light on the beginnings of the affair between the Chief and Mer’s mom.

In separate sequences, we’ll see Bailey in her pre-“Nazi” days, and Callie shortly before she was introduced on the show.

But back to Richards and Paulson, their resemblance to James Pickens Jr. and Kate Burton is pretty uncanny, no? Paulson and Burton, in particular, look like they were cut from the same family tree.

Meredith. Alex. Bailey. Arizona. The doctors are definitely in on Shonda Rhimes’ hospital melodrama.
