We know he's a talented performer (and a brilliant surgeon), but Isaiah Washington is being recognized for more than his acting chops these days. The 42-year old Grey's Anatomy star was named one of the world's 50 Most Beautiful People by People Magazine in its annual feature.
Washington has won acclaim for his portrayal of Dr. Preston Burke, a brilliant heart surgeon and consummate professional whose light-hearted side has also shone brightly in recent episodes. He is a key component of a talented, under-appreciated and diverse cast that has made Grey's Anatomy one of TV's most popular shows. Washington has nearly 50 television and TV credits to his name.
