Washington Named One Of TV's Sexiest

by at . Comments
Four of the Hottest Men on TVIn the just-released issue of TV Guide, the magazine has unveiled a list of TV's Sexiest Men. The fantastic foursome earning top billing: Wentworth Miller of Prison Break, Daniel Dae Kim of Lost, Ricardo Antonio Chavira of Desperate Housewives and our very own Isaiah Washington of Grey's Anatomy.

With its four cover photos spread among rising Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian and African-American acting stars, TV Guide spread the wealth nicely -- although three of the four appear on ABC shows!

Each graces the cover in separate printings this week, with a collector's edition set of all four available. TV Guide's website has behind-the-scenes video clips of the actors' photo shoots, as well as shots of a number of other stars. Jensen Ackles, David Boreanaz, Jesse Spencer, Jamie Bamber, Michael Weatherly, Carmine Giovinazzo, David Conrad and Scott Foley were also recognized as some of TV's hottest.

In addition to an assortment of photographs that will surely appeal to female fans, the story provides insight into the actors from spouses and co-stars. Here's what a pair of special people close to Isaiah had to say about him.

"Isaiah's character, Dr. Preston Burke, is forthright, honest and open to a relationship. He loves Cristina amidst all her faults. Their friction is not only sexy — it's real. And we all like to see how characters we love overcome their problems, because it gives us hope that we might be able to, too. Isaiah is larger than life. I don't think he lets his wonderful comic sensibility out that often, but I love seeing it — like in the party scene we had to do, when he made Burke dance like he was stuck in 1989." — Grey's Anatomy co-star Sandra Oh

"Isaiah and I got married three months after we met, even though I was living in New York and he was in L.A. He sent poetry, flowers, books. Now we've been married 10 years and we have three kids, but we make time to be together. We take yoga, we go bowling, we watch art-house films. And every now and then, we sneak off for an afternoon together in a hotel. He has a gorgeous physique, but what really makes my heart go pitter-patter is his generosity. Recently, he traced his ancestry back to Sierra Leone in Africa. He decided to travel there with a film crew. He took along a doctor and got Nike to donate tennis shoes and soccer balls, and a medical organization to give penicillin. He's also very interested in the plight of the African-American. A few years ago, he noticed that the only parts he was being offered were as hoodlums. He made a decision to stop portraying negative stereotypes, even though it meant not working for a while. He believes that what you do comes back to you, and he's very clear about what he wants to leave behind for his children. I'm so proud of him." -- wife Jenisa Washington

It's Getting Hot in Here!

What a wonderful tribute to a terrific actor and person. There isn't anyone more deserving. Be sure to check out our Isaiah Washington gallery for more images of him on and off the set. If you desire additional reading, we have a news section devoted specifically to Isaiah's recognition and pursuits, along with an entertaining Face-Off tribute to the incomparable Dr. Burke.

I love all the castmates of Grey's Anatomy. Is very unfortunate the words Isaiha decided to use. As human beings we all have the ability to slip up sometimes. I am not condoning Washington's behaviour one bit but i hope he can in a face to face meeting with T.R. seriously tell him how sorry he is. I know sorry is not enough but gosgh to fire him off the show? Thats the wrong message to send especially in a country that prides itself in giving people second chances. Mel Gibson was given one, Micheal Richards too so please for all you moralists, give the guy a chance to make amends. Yeah he will probably be pushed off the show, they might get someone to replace him , but you know what he is too good an actor to wither away. If fired i believe he is going to have a break-out performance in a movie. Let him continue to examine his soul, apologize to his castmates and especially sit down with T.R. and tell him man to man how sorry he is for using the " f" word. Thats my contribution today. Great show guys!!!

Washington is a wonderful actor with incredible range, unfortunately he like many other African American actors seem to get very little work. This recent scandal involving the F word is sad. I believe the first incident deserved an apology, however the second did not. He simply answered a question. As a black woman I too understand that words are powerful and can cause harm, however as a culture we are far too sensitive and way too politically correct. It's a word an it's used often and to completely condemn a person and call it something that it isn't is terrible. I.W. keep your head up and continue to represent us wonderfully.

Who to better know the man behind our own beloved Preston Burke than the woman he works with daily and the woman he lives with daily. I loved both of their comments. It is nice to know that those closest to him believe he is as wonderful as we do from out here in TV land.

We only wish the best for the actors and characters and hope it it a long running show....like M*A*S*H when I was "younger"

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

Vulnerability isn't the opposite of strength. It's a necessary part. You have to force yourselves to open up, to expose ourselves, to offer everything we have and just pray that it's good enough. Otherwise, we'll never succeed.

Meredith

Our lives are built on our mistakes as much as our successes.
