Patrick Dempsey Tries to Clarify Grey's Anatomy Contract Status, Remarks

by at . Comments

Patrick Dempsey was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman last night and clarified the remarks he made to Italian Vanity Fair a couple weeks ago about leaving Grey's Anatomy after this season.

Kind of. Sort of. Okay, the actor didn't really say anything new: his contract is up, it might get extended, it might not.

But Dempsey was his typically charming self, joking with the host and introducing a clip of him in Transformers: Dark of the Moon. If he does exit Grey's, let's hope this isn't the sort of junk he'll be making in the future...

PD is trying to get away from doing romcom films and widen his acting portfolio by doing films like Transformers etc. I just get the feeling that being tied to making a tv programme for nine months a year is not what he wants!

Don't worry about his contract renewal get some sleep! mmm well that make's us breathe one small gasp of relief, then go back to worrying haha.
Still think new contract talks will happen when they get back to set so not worried about that, it's just will they accept? Let's hope they still want steady employment.

Oh my Lord...his laugh is sooo dreamy :) but he said to not be worried about him not getting his contract renewed...so keeping my fingers crossed. :)

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)

I want to marry you. I want to have kids with you. I want to build us a house. I want to settle down and grow old with you. I want to die when I'm 110 years old, in your arms. I don't want 48 uninterrupted hours. I want a lifetime. Mmm. Do you see what happens? I say things like that and you fight the urge to run in the opposite direction. It's okay, I understand. I didn't, but now I do, I do. You're just getting started and I've been doing this for a long time now. Deep down, you're still an intern, and you're not ready.
