Has CL been dropped from "Private Practice?"

I sure hope this is a good sign. If you're a regular reader of my oh-so scintillating LJ you know that I've thought this a distinct possibility. As I wrote:
Quote:
I've mentioned in passing that I think it not completely outside the realm of possibility that when Private Practice premieres this fall it will be sans Chris Lowell. The "pilot" got horrible reviews from the vast, vast majority of fans and critics alike and the one almost universal issue that was negatively critiqued was in regards to Lowell and his character (specifically how horribly miscast he was and how horribly unrealistic and stupid his character was). Well, according to this article, ABC wants some retooling done and of the cast only four actors were mentioned specifically as starring (Kate Walsh, Tim Daly, Merrin Dungey and Taye Diggs). True, the quotes mentioned work needed done on exploring the characters, but they're not going to say we're axing so and so right after the upfront. (And yes, I know, Lowell was at the ABC upfront, but I think they had pretty much the whole cast there and I think until after the upfront, they wouldn't want any word that there is a problem with the show as of now. The article came out after the upfront.) Anyhoo, until it's all said and done, I'm hoping Lowell will not be part of the cast when it premieres; that he and his character will be dropped. I really enjoy Walsh (and Daly), but my dislike of Lowell as a performer (and yes, the VM-connection) just will make the show unwatchable for me.
Since I haven't heard anything, I decided to check IMDB. He is listed so:

Admittedly, Paul Adelstein is listed the same way as CL and THIS is IMDB, but still ... I can dream that this perhaps means they are dropping and/or easing his character out. Right? I'm not insane to think that it's possible based on this, right? RIGHT?!?!?! Please, please, please someone say I'm not insane.
