Isaiah Washington Lands New Movie Role

Isaiah Washington Lands New Movie RoleIsaiah Washington has landed a new movie role, and a serious one at that.

The Grey's Anatomy star is set to play a priest returning to the Catholic high school where he was once sexually abused in the indie drama entitled The Least of These.

It will be his first film role, TV Guide notes, since a gay slur directed at Grey's Anatomy cast mate T.R. Knight landed Washington in the headlines.

The film's writer-director, Nathan Scoggins, tells the Hollywood Reporter about how he approached Isaiah Washington after reading about how the actor was being professionally snubbed in the wake of the incident.

Scoggins sees this exciting opporunity as "part of [Isaiah] moving forward and making restitution for his actions."

We're looking forward to seeing the fine actor showcasing his considerable talents on the big screen in this weighty role.

Im happy for him that he has this opportunity to do something else. He made a terrible mistake and has taken the steps to get help. I just hope people will let it go so it can be put to rest. People make mistake and need to deal with the consequences but they they don't have to be beat to the ground about it.

I didn't know that he was being professionally snub in the bussiness. I hope hollywood will be able to over look this and see that the man is very talented. Congrats on the new role Isaiah, hopefully more movie roles will come rolling in for you.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Nobody's memory is perfect or complete. We jumble things up. We lose track of time. We are in one place... then another and it all feels like one long, inescapable moment. So, what does it mean? What do we take away? Which pieces will haunt us? Hurt us? End us? Inspire us? It's just like my mother used to say, the carousel never stops turning. You can't get off.

Meredith

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.
