Grey's Anatomy > Katherine Heigl Suspends Contract Talks > Comments Page 2
NO! Izzie is a rock star! She can't leave she is my favorite! :(
You know, Overit, we may not know what went on behind the scenes of ER back in the George Clooney days. One of the downsides of technology is that the general public is a party to a lot more of the dissention than we were in the past. When something happens today, by tomorrow it is all over the internet. That wasn't the case 10 years ago.
I'm not saying that there are not problems on the set of GA. When you take a relatively large cast of actors with some success but no star status among them, it is easy to get a little bit of an ego problem going on when the show takes off like this one has. There are probably issues of billing (Ellen first, Sandra Oh second, Isaiah and Patrick special billing at the end); issues of salary equity, issues of screen time. I suspect that was the case on ER, too, we just didn't have constant media attention giving us the figurative blow by blow.
Patrick Dempsey and Sandra Oh seem to have the best attitude about the publicity. Sandra keeps a
Katherine Heigl does a great job of portraying Izzie. In my opinion, she also does a great job of self promotion. Katherine Heigl has been seen on every talk show and in every magazine. She's a beautiful woman, but over exposure is almost as lethal as under exposure in Hollywood. Although her character is less important to me than the others, I really liked her with Alex in season one and part of season two. But, I never bought the whole Denny Duquette story line and this year her character has been barely tolerable most of the time. For me there are four members of the cast that are absolutely irriplaceable and that is Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, Isaiah Washington, and Sandra Oh. I also really like Justin Chambers and hope that they expand upon his character and I love Chandra Wilson and think that she is kind of the glue that holds the show together. Even so, I hope Katherine settles her contract disputes and remains on the show because I really do think the chemistry is p
Sounds like someone publist leaked this story to the press to get their client the raise they felt she desvered.
You see, the media is out to get a story anykind of story. When the fight between Patrick, T.R and Washington first broke out it just open the floodgates for the media to make up anykind of story on the cast that they want to.
It seems like the cast is acting like a bunch of spoiled and ungreatful brats(expect for Justin Chambers, James Pickard Jr. and Chandra Wilson)! They should all thank their lucky stars that they are on this amazing show that is such a hit. The cast of ER never acted like this.
It also seems like to me that the on-set drama is more interesting then what is going on in season three.
I was never a fan of Izzie Stevens since her stupid love story with Duquette and the actress leaves me cold she talks too much I have seen her on Oprah she gives the impression to be a spoiled girl. I do recognize that in some scenes she did a great job but I realize that Izzie Stevens is not such a nice person I came to this conclusion by watching the first season DVD again. She wants everything her way and she can be very sarcastic on screen.
Seems to me KH did have an agenda when she couldn't keep her mouth shut. I enjoy the entire cast and believe it is the entire cast and writings that makes the show the success that it is (not one or two people), but when someone starts making demands... I would definitely let them loose.
What is it about this show that keep the rumors flying. This show is a success because of the entire cast and crew not just a select few. Of course there are going to be problems rise but how they are handled is what makes the differance. Some people seem to have made it their personal mission to keep things stirred up. For the true fans that is just so irritating. I want to enjoy the show and hate to see it fall apart from the inside.
well, thank goodness for that! (^@,^)
i think we have all been reacting to a piece of news that may not have been true, anyway. people.com had put this item out yesterday and then, all of a sudden, they put out another one today that entirely contradicts the other. i mean, seriously! couldn't they have confirmed the rumor first before putting it on their website?
guys, this is not the first time reporters have passed a rumor off as true and i'm sure it won't be the last. i hope we have all learned a lesson from this one.
Hey, if you go to www.people.com, there is a new article that says she is not leaving. i love her, and derek very much!!
i love izzie! katherine heigl is a good actress. if anyone needs proof, i refer them to the last scene in the last episode when she was in the hallway with denny. that girl can act with just her eyes. now, if that's not enough proof to get her as much money as her co-stars then i don't know what is.
as for the negative reaction to her character development, true grey's fans should realize that the writers must have some reason for making izzie so unlikeable. i may not agree with how she's doing it but i understand why izzie is so down on george and callie. george's father just died. then he became a sex machine at which point, callie stared avoiding him. then he asks her to marry him! the fact that callie actually married him makes me think she may have taken a little advantage of him.
izzie never said george shouldn't be with callie. she just said that things were going too fast. i actually agree with her on this. she's his best friend, for heavens sake! who's gonna tell him th
I agree with Wild about Grey 2/28/07,1:41pm. The story revolving inside the show is NOT about IZZIE STEVENS. She was cast for the part of Izzie, NOT Mer, (or) Cristina. Ms Heigl NEEDS to understand that the WORLD is NOT revolving around her .She is part of an ensemble. Everyone has their part to play in this show. Comparing herself to Sandra Oh is just stupid. First and foremost Sandra Oh is an outstanding actor. She puts ALL of herself in any role she plays. She makes you believe she is this person she is playing. Katherine needs to remember that this is a story in Shonda Rhimes head and how it will play out is anybodys guess. ( even Shonda's) Katherine Heigl needs to grow up.
I hope izzie stays. if she doesnt i WILL NOT watch the show. she CANT leaveeee!!!!if i could choose between isaiah and katherine i would choose katherine to stay 99.9%.....she rocks....
She had an interesting story line in season 2 but this season she does a lot of baking and judging others. She should complain more about her storyline instead of her contract and the contract will come.
Katherine...Katherine...Listen....QUIT BITCHIN!!!! That is all you have been doing lately. It is all about you isn't it? Well guess what...it is not! It is about touching your audience and being honored to have been one of the few people to be chosen to be on such a great show!!!
I think Katherine is acting like her character of late, whiny! What was up with the closing scene as Meredith was lying unresponsive on the table and Katherine starts with I believe, this, that and the other thing, George you shouldn't have married Callie, Meredith is possibly dead you idiot, who cares about what you believe!! She is becomming very annoying, she should be grateful she is on the best show on television and stop whining!!!
^^ Not necessarily true.
People love Izzie way more than Burke.
And I know people definetly love Katherine more than Isiah.
i say spinoff katherine and keep kate..
I really hope they can work this out. I am not happy with the way Izzie is acting about the whole Callie and George thing but i would hate to see her leave.....I really think they should all get comprable pay because everyone of the actors/actress on the show are important and it wouldn't be GA without out them....
And if you are reading this Shonda....i know you want to do a spinoff but please don't take Kate we love her as Addison on GA.
This sucks. Both Katherine and Kate potentially leaving. Way to kill your entire male audience in one go.
I would stop watching if Katherine was not on the show. She is amazing.
