Patrick Dempsey Pictures From His Newest Film Project, "Freedom Writers"

by at . Comments

Special thanks to a reader of ours, Wilson, for sending us a link to some pictures and information about Patrick Dempsey's latest film.

Inspired by a true story and the diaries of real Long Beach teenagers after the L.A. riots, Freedom Writers tackles the worst outbreak of interracial gang warfare in recent history. Two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank stars as Erin Gruwell, whose passion to become a teacher is challenged by Black, Latino, and Asian gangs who hate her even more than each other. But when she listens to them in ways no adults ever have, Erin begins to understand what their lives are like - and what she wants her own to become.

Patrick plays Scott Casey, who appears to be a love interest and possible colleague of Hilary Swank. The film is written and directed by Richard LaGravenese and also stars Scott Glenn, Imelda Staunton and Mario. It opens January 12. At the very least, it offers some nice Patrick Dempsey pictures...

If anyone knows the story of Freedom Writers I suspect that the role Patrick Dempsey plays will not be one that viewers like. His character does not turn out as the hero.


Patrick is sooooo good looking! He naturally looks out of place with anyone other than Ellen Pompeo! THey are the best couple on TV and both NY & CO videos are great! They seem like a real life couple to me! YOu can tell that they really care alot about each other! (on and off screen) Even in their interview with Oprah! He especially seems so protective of her, like the way he winked at her before the interview got started was soooo cute!


I agree with you Bonnie M. The NY&Co ads are awesome. I have never seen and actor & actress with the chemistry these two have. I'll go see the movie to watch McDreamy but, agree that is is weird to see him with someone besides Ellen.


I try not to type cast but Grey's Anatomy is the first thing I have ever seen Patrick and Ellen do and I am so hooked on seeing them together. It is hard for me to watch them with anyone else it does seem weird. The NY&CO photo shoot is another reason I am hooked on these two the chemistry is just awesome.


i donno i m totally in love with patrick demsey but seeing him with another woman besides ellen pompeo just feels doubt that he's a good actor but i dont think this'll work out to well because he'll always be looked at by everyone only as derrick mcdreamy sheppard....


Patrick and HIlary are cute but they haven't the same chemistry of Patrick and Ellen.


Yes - everyone needs to vote for Grey's and Patrick for the People's Choice awards!


Patrick Dempsey looks great and is really appealing on screen, he has great charisma and a charm thats priceless. I've been watching Grey's Anatomy since its inception and I love that show! He's was recently nominated for Favorite Male TV Star for the upcoming People's Choice Awards. There are only 5 more days to vote. Be sure to cast your votes ASAP @ I got to vote the day the nominations came out because I work with the People's Choice Community.


I don't really like his hair in the top pic. Too much, to wavey. I like the more boyish curls. But anyhow, seems like a fun movie. Hilary rocks btw.


I think he is married to her in this movie......he rocks...can't wait to see the movie

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.


Doesn't matter how tough we are, trauma always leaves a scar. It follows us home, it changes our lives, trauma messes everybody up, but maybe that's the point. All the pain and the fear and the crap. Maybe going through all of that is what keeps us moving forward. It's what pushes us. Maybe we have to get a little messed up, before we can step up.
