He may not have gotten the girl on Gilmore Girls, but David
sure is on Private Practice — at least for now. The actor plays Kate
’s new love interest on the Grey’s Anatomy spin-off and tells OK! he is
loving his new work atmosphere.

“It’s nice. I just did two episodes. It’s fun,” David tells
OK! at the National Kidney Foundation of Southern California Great Chefs event.
[Kate]’s a terrific lady and so great to work with. It’s a nice environment. It’s
nice to be on a new hit show.”

Also nice is the show’s slower pace.

On Gilmore Girls, the 38-year-old portrayed Christopher
Hayden, Rory’s dad and Lorelai’s on-again, off-again partner, and often found
himself caught in the middle of the dramedy’s notorious rapid banter.

“It’s a lot more relaxed,” David says of Practice. “It’s a
little more chilled out.”
