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.
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.
