Isaiah Washington Lands New Movie Role
Isaiah Washington has landed a new movie role, and a serious one at that.

The Grey's Anatomy star is set to play a priest returning to the Catholic high school where he was once sexually abused in the indie drama entitled The Least of These.

It will be his first film role, TV Guide notes, since a gay slur directed at Grey's Anatomy cast mate T.R. Knight landed Washington in the headlines.

The film's writer-director, Nathan Scoggins, tells the Hollywood Reporter about how he approached Isaiah Washington after reading about how the actor was being professionally snubbed in the wake of the incident.

Scoggins sees this exciting opporunity as "part of [Isaiah] moving forward and making restitution for his actions."

We're looking forward to seeing the fine actor showcasing his considerable talents on the big screen in this weighty role.

All the boys and all the bars and all the obvious daddy issues, who cares? I was done. You left me. You chose Addison. I'm all glued back together now. I make no apologies for how I chose to repair what you broke. You don't get to call me a whore."
