The 44-year-old is best known for playing Ted Mosby in the CBS sitcom than ran from 2005 to 2014.

EW has confirmed that Josh Radnor (How I Met Your Mother) will join the cast of Grey's Anatomy as a potential love interest for the single-but-ready-to-mingle Meredith (Ellen Pompeo). The Season 15 opener found Meredith in bed with Dr. Andrew DeLuca (Giacomo Gianniotti), a scene teased in the trailer.

In the 45-second sneak peek of Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy, Meredith, 48, sparked curiosity among her colleagues as she stood in her living room nicely dressed in a pink trench coat, white blouse and black trousers.

Grey's showrunner Krista Vernoff told Deadline in an interview last month that the question remains open as to whether Meredith will find her first love post-Derek this season, "but boy, is she putting herself out there in a new way".

"I was really interested in seeing someone as handsome and smart and amusing and complex as Meredith actually have to put herself out there", Vernoff said. Dr. Alex Karvev (Justin Chambers) asks. "Are you going to a funeral?"

"Oh my god, you have a date", Dr. Maggie Piece (Kelly McCreary) says.

But Radnor's character's identity is a mystery even to Meredith, who reveals she's never met him and doesn't even know what he looks like.

Meredith (Ellen Pompeo) has a hot date in Thursday's episode of Grey's Anatomy, and he's going to look very familiar to a lot of TV fans. He most recently starred as Dr. Jedediah Foster on Mercy Street and Lou Mazichelli on Rise.
