When Is Dr. Preston Burke Returning???
Shonda needs to make amends with isaiah and bring him back
What has SR to make amends for .IW got sacked for gross misconduct
And this is a guy with a long track record of misconduct on sets .Grey's was his third strike
He is a violent,homophobic,sexually inapropriate bully with severe anger management issues .He conducted a campaign against the network in an attempt to make himself a victim ,which rather than owning up to what he did is still currently doing .
He also accused Jim Pickens of being an Uncle Tom because he didn't get in the faces of others on set.
ABC/Disney(and I dont see any other network rushing out to get him on board either) wouldn't touch this guy with a barge pole as he is a law suit waiting to happen.Posted 5/26/2011 6:38:17 AM #
Wow really? Because he has some definate personal opinions that are not popular, that makes him not worthy of Grey' Anatomy? He's an actor. And a good one. And he needs to come back because Owen and Christina never worked as a couple. Never. They keep forcing this relationship down our throats, but it NEVER worked. Burke was Christina's balance. Her mentor. He was the male version of her. Yin to Yang. She has grown, evolved and it would be just so intriguing to revist that relationship years later when she is trying to emerge from all her trauma as a surgeon and interact with the one person that truly believed in her as a surgeon, that open her up and made her vulnerable as a woman. As must as you might detest IW, Preston Burke was a genius of a character on Grey's.Posted 5/26/2011 7:16:08 PM #
Thank you DJ! What people fail to realize is that IW is a great actor. I rather watch him as Preston Burke than the rest of the actors on Grey's. I really believe that Shonda should squash the beef and ask him to come back for a special guest role. Do you know the ratings would sky high.lol KMK will never compare to IW. It is what it is. People disagree all the time. Why can't Shonda bring him back.KMK is so boring.He tries too hard as an actor sometimes.Posted 5/26/2011 8:06:26 PM #
I already said ,It's nothing to do with 'a personal beef '.ABC will not have him on the show and they pay the bills not Shonda.
Disney has employment policies about the stuff he pulled ,he violated them and was fired .He then spent the next year pursuing the network thru the courts ,and badmouthing the company,the show and various cast members .IW is toxic and NO NETWORK WILL EMPLOY HIM.Whether you think he is a talented actor or not his on set behaviour , his lack of self restraint and inability to keep his trap shut have put him in the position he finds himself in no one else .And still he doesn't think he did anything wrong as in his latest book he is still trying to portray himself a a victim.
He had previous with on set antics .He hit a production assistant on one show and was fired STRIKE ONE
He got handsy with a female co-star .When she complained he started screaming in her face .When the director and the the producer tried to intervene he then started screaming at them .The police then had to be called to physically remove him from the set .Fired again STRIKE TWO
Grey's was STRIKE THREE
Thats a pattern and thats down to him. Or is Shonda (and apparently me for being mean and pointing it out) to blame for a decade of bad behaviourPosted 5/26/2011 8:55:25 PM #
ok ok.lol It's not that serious.He still made Grey's sucessful hands down. So he's the Malcolm x of tv so what.lol What he said was wrong,but I bet PD said something snarky. He thinks he's the best actor in the world as it is. He's very cocky about Greys. I'll be glad when he leaves! He doesn't want to be there anywhere. All he does is Nascar Nascar.lolPosted 5/26/2011 10:33:15 PM #
Kevin McKidd is great, he is a native Scotsman doing an American accent. At one point I would have loved to have seen the character of Burke come back, now after 4 years without him no, I love the fact that Cristina is in love with her husband, she has always respected Owen, from the very beginning she has called Owen, Owen. With Preston Burke, the whole time they were dating and living together even on their wedding day Cristina always called him Burke, I remember one episode the boys went out to the woods to go fishing, and Cristina mentions to Izzie that boys called Preston don't go out to the bush. Owen has alway been Owen, Cristina went out and bought them the firehouse for them, then she went out and bought furniture to decorate set firehouse, as a home for her and Owen to live in as husband and wife.
So Preston Burke won't be back. Owen and Cristina will work through her mother/baby issues we will just have to wait for Season 8 to return in September.Posted 5/27/2011 7:50:18 AM #
I would love for Preston Burke to return because Cristina needs closure from her relationship with Burke. She needs to fully move on and focus on her marriage to Owen but she needs to close that chapter in her love life. "Burke was- He took something from me. He took little pieces of me, little pieces over time, so small I didn't even notice, you know? He wanted me to be something I wasn't, and I made myself into what he wanted. One day I was me Cristina Yang, and then suddenly I was lying for him, and jeopardizing my career, and agreeing to be married and wearing a ring, and being a bride. Until I was standing there in a wedding dress with no eyebrows, and I wasn't Cristina Yang anymore. And even then, I would've married him. I would have. I lost myself for a long time. And now that I'm finally me again, I can't. I love you. I love you more than I loved Burke. I love you. And that scares the crap out of me because when you asked me to ignore Teddy's page, you took a piece of me, and I let you. And that will never happen again." Even Teddy is Cristina's dream attending, she needs closure with her past attending who happens to be her ex-fiance.Posted 5/27/2011 10:45:57 AM #
No Cristina just needs to be Cristina and be the best cardio surgeon she can be and that is because Burke, Hahn and Teddy have all taught Cristina how to be a great Cardio surgeon, she doesn't need to be taught anymore, she now needs to be the teacher and teach new interns all what she has learnt, and Burke does not need to come back for that, Cristina has had closure she is married to Owen, if she still loved Burke she would have said no to Owen and she would still be single, Cristina had the wedding of her dreams, no church, no mother, no white dress, it was Cristins'a perfect day.
Everyone should have there dream about Burke coming back, but in reality it's not g to happen, Isiah Washington can not take back what he said and you can't unhire someone who has been fired, it's very unethical.Posted 5/28/2011 12:00:29 AM #
I did not like Burke's character at all. He was too distant and I could not even see him in a relationship with Christina. I think she really just liked him as a surgeon. Their relationship was odd and they had nothing in common besides surgeries which is why George was so much of a friend to Burke. Christina only admired him. He was about status and she was about get it.Posted 6/9/2011 10:17:51 PM #
it's so funny that someone was asking when is preston burke comming back, because I was just thinking that when Patrick Dempsey leaves (ie, is pushed out) that will mean that SR has successfully eliminated every cast member that was involved in the rows that forced IW's sacking (Katherine, TR and now PD). SR has had a clear agenda to get rid of everyone who survived that fight, because she clearly favoured IW.Posted 6/10/2011 9:42:03 AM #
