Grey's Anatomy: Scott Foley's head is used as a prop

Scott Foley still works on Grey’s Anatomy. Well, his head does anyway.

The Scandal star appeared on the long-running ABC medical drama for 15 episodes between 2010 and 2012, but a mold of his head is still put to good use on set, current castmembers revealed during their “Three Rounds” panel at EW PopFest when moderator and Entertainment Weekly editor in chief Henry Goldblatt asked about the grossest prop on set.

“Scott Foley’s head,” Kelly McCreary answered without a moment’s hesitation. Jessica Capshaw quickly agreed.

“Explanation,” Jason George interjected. “Scott Foley was on the show years ago as a character and so there’s a molding of his head that is often used to sub in when we don’t have an actor on the [operating] table.”

Even though the head is made of latex and its eyes are closed, McCreary insisted, “It’s a pretty incredible likeness. It’s creepy.”
