Morgan to Star in Indie Office Comedy

An Actor in Demand
Not long ago, he struggled for work. Nowadays, it seems as if Jeffrey Dean Morgan can't get enough.

We've already talked about the actor's addition to the cast of the new and as-yet-untitled Shonda Rhimes pilot involving female journalists. Now the actor has another new project in the pipeline -- a role opposite Lisa Kudrow (of Friends fame) and Teri Garr (Tootsie, Close Encounters of the Third Kind) in the independent film Kabluey, directed by Scott Prendergast.

"It's a small part." Morgan said of the off-beat comedy, which reports say will be set in an office environment. "But can you imagine, Lisa Kudrow? And Teri Garr? That's just amazing."

Morgan, 40, still has recurring roles on two TV series, Supernatural and Weeds. His beloved Grey's Anatomy character, Denny Duquette, may not have survived the second season of the hospital drama, but the actor's career has certainly survived, and then some. Great to see. We will continue to follow J.D.'s pursuits and keep you updated whenever we hear something.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

You think that true love is the only thing that can crush your heart; that will take your life and light it up or destroy it. Then you become a mother.
