E! Online: Isaiah Washington Job Searching

at . Comments

Take this with a large grain of salt, since, if you recall, "experts" such as TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reported that Isaiah Washington was a goner last winter when the controversy over his anti-gay remarks swirled.

Still, E! Online's Kristin Veitch says she has some dirt on whether or not Isaiah Washington will be staying on Grey's Anatomy.

She writes:

"I've now heard from various reliable sources that Isaiah has been taking meetings in New York and Los Angeles in search of a new job that would take place during the coming TV season, so it certainly appears that Isaiah's Grey's Anatomy days are over.

"Insiders at ABC tell me "not everyone will be coming back" to Grey's this fall, and although T.R. Knight's fate was also left hanging in the balance after the season finale, I'm hearing he's gonna be back (gotta wrap up that love triangle, not to mention his betrothed is the new chief resident)!

"But like I said, Isaiah looks to be a goner. Makes that scene of Cristina ripping the shackle off her neck while sobbing "I'm free" and the Chief's lecture to Burke that he's "disappointed" in him all the more poignant, no?"

Contrarily, Washington's publicist, Howard Bragman, said there's no indication his client won't be staying on Grey's next fall. Until we hear anything definitive from Isaiah or from ABC, consider all of this speculation.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

[narrating] "At the end of the day, when it comes down to it, all we really want is to be close to somebody. So this thing where we all keep our distance and pretend not to care about each other, it's usually a load of bull. So we pick and choose who we want to remain close to, and once we've chosen those people, we tend to stick close by. No matter how much we hurt them. The people that are still with you at the end of the day, those are the ones worth keeping. And sure, sometimes close can be too close. But sometimes, that invasion of personal space, it can be exactly what you need."

MEREDITH

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
