E! Online: Isaiah Washington Job Searching

by 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.

One of the 50 Most... 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.

Isaiah can not leave the show!!! Shonda said it herself that there is only one Preston Burke and if there was anyone who was born to play that part it was Isaiah Washington. The show will not be the same without him if he leaves. Christina better grow her eyebrows back and go after her man!!!

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

Lexie: [narrating] Grief may be a thing we all have in common, but it looks different on everyone.
Mark: It isn't just death we have to grieve. It's life. It's loss. It's change.
Alex: And when we wonder why it has to suck so much sometimes, has to hurt so bad. The thing we gotta try to remember is that it can turn on a dime.
Izzie: That's how you stay alive. When it hurts so much you can't breathe, that's how you survive.
Derek: By remembering that one day, somehow, impossibly, you won't feel this way. It won't hurt this much.
Bailey: Grief comes in its own time for everyone, in its own way.
Owen: So the best we can do, the best anyone can do, is try for honesty.
Meredith: The really crappy thing, the very worst part of grief is that you can't control it.
Arizona: The best we can do is try to let ourselves feel it when it comes.
Callie: And let it go when we can.
Meredith: The very worst part is that the minute you think you're past it, it starts all over again.
Cristina: And always, every time, it takes your breath away.
Meredith: There are five stages of grief. They look different on all of us, but there are always five.
Alex: Denial.
