Chandra Wilson will be homeless for the holidays.
Chandra, best known as the tough-as-nails (but occasionally vulnerable) Dr. Miranda Bailey on "Grey's Anatomy," will check out of Seattle Grace during the show's hiatus and check into the Hallmark Channel original movie "Accidental Friendship," set to air this November or December.
She'll portray a woman who becomes homeless but begins to turn her life around after she meets and befriends a female police officer. Sounds like a juicy role for Chandra -- maybe just the ticket to finally get that Emmy. She's been nominated twice for "Grey's Anatomy" but lost both times, last year to co-star Katherine Heigl.
Meanwhile, just in time for May sweeps, you'll see Chandra back in scrubs when "Grey's" returns with five new episodes April 24.
