All eyes are on Meredith and Derek as they continue to prepare for their looming wedding. But that's not all that's worth looking into, especially as Grey's Anatomy concludes its fifth season with a two-hour finale slated to air on May 14. According to Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello, series creator Shonda Rhimes has tapped Debra Mooney and Liza Weil for the highly anticipated season ender. Mooney, known for her role on Everwood , most recently appeared on Eleventh Hour , ER , Cold Case , and Pushing Daisies . On the other hand, Weil is credited for her role as Paris Geller on Gilmore Girls , as well as her roles on The West Wing , The Adventures of Pete & Pete, Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and ER . Weil also has ties to Rhimes' other show, Private Practice given that her real-life husband is cast member Paul Adelstein. On Grey's Anatomy, Mooney will play the mother of Kevin McKidd's emotionally plagued character Owen, while Weil will appear as a cancer patient who crosses paths with Izzie. Aside from her upcoming guest stint on Grey's Anatomy, Weil has also been cast in Mars, a film about the discovery of life on Mars which puts a robotic expedition and a manned mission in a race to the Red Planet, and Little Fish, Strange Pond, a crime comedy movie that features Matthew Modine, Lisa Brenner, Adam Baldwin and her husband Paul Adelstein. Meanwhile, fans can catch the next new episode of Grey's Anatomy on Thursday, April 23 in which Izzie throws herself into planning Derek and Meredith's wedding while she goes through an aggressive cancer treatment.

Unlike Felicity Huffman, Eva Longoria Parker, Nicollette Sheridan and Teri Hatcher, Marcia Cross hasn't been landing other acting projects since getting cast on ABC's Desperate Housewives. Now, it's her time to shine in the big screen as she toplines the comedy called Peck. According to Variety, the movie centers on a high school student who lives under a microscope of parental scrutiny. When his overbearing parents force him to compete in the science fair, he thinks that he can surprise everyone. Instead, he develops an unlikely friendship with the school's golden girl. Directed by Michael Nickles (This Is Not a Film, Do You Wanna Dance?) and written by Marc Arneson, Peck also stars Adam Arkin (Life, 8 Simple Rules... for Dating My Teenage Daughter), Camryn Manheim (Ghost Whisperer, The Practice), Keir Gilchrist (The Winner, Life with Derek) and Brie Larson (The Babysitter, The Beautiful Ordinary). Production of Peck is presently ongoing, although shooting is expected to wrap up this month. Prior to landing perfectionist Bree Hodge on Desperate Housewives, Marcia Cross played Dr. Linda Abbott on the drama series Everwood. She was also known for her portrayal of the mentally unbalanced Dr. Kimberly Shaw on Melrose Place, whom she played from 1992 to 1997. Kimberly was, and remains, a firm fan favorite, providing many of the show's most memorable moments with her plans to kill many of the characters on the series. On the silver screen, Cross was cast in the 2003 drama The Wind Effect, starred alongside Joshua Beckett, who also served as the writer and director in the movie Always Say Goodbye, appeared in the mystery thriller Living in Fear, and played the lead character with severe bi-polar disorder in the film All She Ever Wanted. Meanwhile, fans can catch Cross and the rest of the cast of Desperate Housewives when the award-winning dramedy returns for a fifth season this fall.
