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.

Im happy for him that he has this opportunity to do something else. He made a terrible mistake and has taken the steps to get help. I just hope people will let it go so it can be put to rest. People make mistake and need to deal with the consequences but they they don't have to be beat to the ground about it.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

We're all going to die. We don't get much say over how or when, but we do get to decide how we're gonna live. So, do it. Decide. Is this the life you want to live? Is this the person you want to love? Is this the best you can be? Can you be stronger? Kinder? More Compassionate? Decide. Breathe in. Breathe out and decide.

Richard

Did you say it? 'I love you. I don't ever want to live without you. You changed my life.' Did you say it? Make a plan. Set a goal. Work toward it, but every now and then, look around; Drink it in 'cause this is it. It might all be gone tomorrow."
