Rep Denies Report of T.R. Knight Quitting Grey's Anatomy

by at . Comments

Despite a report picked up on several celebrity news sites, T.R. Knight is not leaving Grey's Anatomy, a show rep told Us Weekly exclusively Monday.

T.R. Knight has never walked off set in the middle of filming. He attended the table read today and will be shooting this week, just like any other week of production," the Grey's Anatomy rep said, responding to recent reports.

Rumors first erupted after an entertainment lawyer posted on his personal website, CrazyDaysAndNights.net, that Knight walked off and quit the show.

"So, I got a little more information from my source and they say, 'He hasn’t attended table reads since Episode 2. He's pissed and miserable and thinks his story line is stupid,'" he blogged.

"He said goodbye to his hair and makeup people last week. He says he is done and has quit. ABC has not released him. Shonda Rhimes, the producer called him and he told her he had nothing to say. He has packed his dressing room.”

He Passed!

Although it has now been emphatically denied, it's interesting that this rumor popped up after T.R.'s character, George O'Malley, has been conspicuously MIA for weeks. One wonders if there may be a little truth to it, even if the incident were exaggerated. Thoughts?

the whole show is falling apart. Im starting to doubt if it will even get to season 6.... shonda&co started killing it with rose, meredith's exagerated fears, so many stories that started to lead no where (Goerge and Callie, George and Lizzie, Alex and Ava, Callie and Erica, Christina having no life, Lexie and George, etc... they taka one step foward and three steps back) and they keep doing that... now I read that this thing between Callie and Sadie is also not gonna get too far... come ooon! give us something to hold on, a storyline that we can fall in love with.... becouse the storylines are what actually makes us fall in love with the characters. Lets face it, the show went totally boring, almost no sexy funny scenes... and that what it was all about... sexy funny scenes between the serious drama of a hospital... and also no more merder... so much time fighting to be together and now they are like an old bored married couple...
what happened to shonda&co? they used to be so good....

Well, sry ppl, but TR is SO DAMN RIGHT!!!!
I mean, what would you do, with a storyline that is none and so little air time!??
I would quit 2, so go for it TR! Now you think I'm insane, cause I think it's the right step for him, but hey, I do love George and I will miss him so much and yeah, without him GA isn't the same, but the show changed so much and there are so many stupid useless charas in there... you just have to say that he's right and maybe Shonda will try to get him back with a new storyline, you never now... would be great, cause I loved the old Greys and George's one of the old crew!

I am soo confused! is going or isn't he going?? I DONT want him to go, i love George! He hasnt been getting much screen time. But I thought that he was going to be getting one, like getting in one the Izzie/Denny/Alex storyline. I hope he doesnt go, and the show will go back to having the orginal interns being friends again and eating lunch together and hanging out like they used to. I miss that.

In this picture he really looks like an annoying little man.

Drcookchick

He's staying. Kristin from E! Online said most of the people weren't guessing it right, and about everyone said T.R. Once again, I think (and hope) it's Chief. He's never been one of the characters that I cared too much about.

Well I'll be sad if George does go...he's been through so much with Callie and Izzie and his dad dying and the intern thing...but I suppose that even the best of us can be cry babies. It's a shame, he would be a sad character to lose on the show, even if his role is now a minor one...

I wouldn't really care if he quit, he has never been a really important character and I kinda got used to not seeing him the last few weeks.. and if he's being so annoying it's his own fault right?

Joey

Hey, I think its more than likely that's he has quit. I think the rep is probably trying to keep a lid on things considering the Brooke uproar. I think that if he isn't handed the storyline he wants then he will be gone for sure. :( Shame.

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

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."
