Jeffrey Dean Morgan Mum on Grey's Anatomy Return

by at . Comments

Jeffrey Dean Morgan, beloved by Grey’s Anatomy fans as doomed patient Denny Duquette, isn’t ruling out the possibility of a Season Five return.

His comments come after said return has pretty much been confirmed.

“We’ll see,” Morgan said of rumors that Denny would return to Grey’s Anatomy next fall in a possible brain tumor storyline for Katherine Heigl’s character, Izzie Stevens.

“I read that, too. Who knows what’s going to happen?”

If the call does come from the medical drama, Morgan said he'd be thrilled to be romantically paired with Katherine Heigl again on-screen.

“She’s awesome,” Morgan said. “I had a blast with her. She’s wonderful and I can’t say enough good things about her and that whole cast.”

Morgan and Heigl in Season Two's memorable plot line.

As for Heigl’s recent Emmy flap - which some perceived as an insult to the writers of Grey's Anatomy - Jeffrey Dean Morgan says her comments were most likely misunderstood, and even if they weren’t, he likes her candor.

“I think that stuff gets blown completely out of proportion,” he said. “She just speaks her mind. That’s exactly what she does. Maybe more people should speak their mind.”

OMG NO! to things, Izzie should not get killed off. maybe in 5 more seasons! but also Denny should not come back on the show. they would make it believeable but no....
love always
love Syd
p.s. to destony above me is Denny really your father in law? lol if he is i would love to meet him


oh denny, he's like my father in law. i wish he'll be back in the show. something scenes not just stuck in the bed with all the contraptions hooked. lol..


so you know how he said its not confirmed that he will be appearing? i heard he already filmed his scenes? maybe it was just a rumor..but i hope ot i love JDM!


SD-6... *lol* I think it would be cool if Izzie started to see him out of the blue and start talking to him. She could have a "relationship" with him again until someone calls her on some pills-addiction and finds out she's been hallucinating really badly ;) Anything to have Denny back on the show for more than one episode! I'm soooooooooo happy about this!


If Izzie doesn't get the brain tumor thing, I wonder how we will see Denny. Perhaps Denny is never dead, and he turns out to be a CIA agent working for SD-6... (WTH?? lolz) Anyway, really glad to have Denny on the show again.


“I think that stuff gets blown completely out of proportion,� he said. “She just speaks her mind. That’s exactly what she does. Maybe more people should speak their mind.� I'm with you man, I can't believe the amount of people in forums criticizing her comments and insulting her. WHAT SHE SAID IS A 100% RIGHT, and it wasn't an insult or something, it was the truth... not every season she is going to get the best story in the show. I hope Jeffrey stays long on this season.

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

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."

Meredith (closing voiceover)

When we say things like "people don't change" it drives scientist crazy because change is literally the only constant in all of science. Energy. Matter. It's always changing, morphing, merging, growing, dying. It's the way people try not to change that's unnatural. The way we cling to what things were instead of letting things be what they are. The way we cling to old memories instead of forming new ones. The way we insist on believing despite every scientific indication that anything in this lifetime is permanent. Change is constant. How we experience change that's up to us. It can feel like death or it can feel like a second chance at life. If we open our fingers, loosen our grips, go with it, it can feel like pure adrenaline. Like at any moment we can have another chance at life. Like at any moment, we can be born all over again.
