'Grey's Anatomy': 'Felicity's' Scott Foley is Teddy's new project

Holy "Felicity," Scott Foley is dropping into "Grey's Anatomy" and he's going to create quite the distraction for Teddy ( Kim Raver). He plays Henry, a patient with no health insurance and a big tumor.

While most of the talk surrounding Foley surrounds whether his character is the new Denny (you know Izzie's star-crossed love), we're more interested in whether he's the new Yang ( Sandra Oh). After all, Teddy needs a new project since Christina quit...

"Here is this person who is basically being sent home to die," Raver tells TVGuide.com. "And that, to her, is just unconscionable, so she will do whatever it takes to make sure she can right the system." Yep, project!

Of course, there's the likelihood that Henry and Teddy's relationship could get steamy (which is pretty Denny/Izzie-ish), but Raver says Teddy isn't doing this, because Henry's hot.

"[Helping Henry is] what feeds the fire to her," she says. "Not like, 'Oh wow, this guy's really cute and I get to fix him.' It would be much easier if she was conscious of that [spark between them]."

And what does Foley have to say for Henry's intentions for Teddy? "He needs someone to take his cause up, but I think he's just a nice guy," Foley tells the site. "I think anybody who's sick and possibly terminally ill would do whatever they could to get better."

We're keeping tabs on Henry. Thankfully, he's not so hard on the eyes.

Watch a sneak peek of Henry and Teddy:
