Is Debby Ryan following in Demi Lovato's Footsteps?

Yes, Debby Ryan will be appearing in one of Shonda Rhimes hit tv shows and will be playing a girl who is in rehab.

What show you ask? Private Practice!

Demi Lovato previously starred in Shonda's show Grey's Anatomy where she played a schizophrenic person.

Debby Ryan will be acting alongside Caterina Scorsone. According to E! Online, Ryan will play Hailey, an 18-year-old girl whom Amelia meets while in rehab. Say what? Yes, apparently our Amelia finds herself in rehab quite soon. The two ladies will cross paths during the two-hour Private Practice event on Nov. 17."

We can't wait to see our favorite teen sweety play a bad girl on screen. It'll be a completely different role for her and we know she'll rock it.

Private Practice airs Thursdays at 10 p.m. on ABC. Will you watch Debby's episode?
