Jeffrey Dean Morgan Mum on Grey's Anatomy Return

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.”

Grey's Anatomy Quotes

There's a reason I said I'd be happy alone. It wasn't 'cause I thought I'd be happy alone. It was because I thought if I loved someone and then it fell apart, I might not make it. It's easier to be alone, because what if you learn that you need love and you don't have it? What if you like it and lean on it? What if you shape your life around it and then it falls apart? Can you even survive that kind of pain? Losing love is like organ damage. It's like dying. The only difference is death ends. This? It could go on forever.

Meredith

MEREDITH: "You don't get to call me a whore. When I met you, I thought I had found the person that I was going to spend the rest of my life with. I was done! 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."
DEREK: "This thing with us is finished. It's over."
MEREDITH: "Finally."
DEREK: "Yeah, it's done."
MEREDITH: "It is done."
