Isaiah Washington Joins Cast of CW Pilot (3/11/2013)continued from below. I hope he won't let his issues get in the way of his considerable talent again. Once he was off the show, Heigl and Knight weren't talented enough to seize the day so it really was a loss. Grey's became much less interesting to watch.
Isaiah Washington Joins Cast of CW Pilot (3/11/2013)Sorry Matt but you're misremembering this controversy. Isaiah Washington was arguing with Patrick Dempsey over the delays he had caused in filming that day and said he wasn't M.Dempsey's -insert homophobic slur- and shouldn't have to wait around if the other couldn't be bothered to show up ready for filming. T.R. Knight heard of the incident and was offended. He apparently hadn't come out yet but nonetheless saw it as a slur against himself and when Washington ignored his complaints on the grounds that he wasn't the one being argued with, Knight decided to air his grievances in public with Katherine Heigl siding with him. A less charitable person might point out that, at the time, Washington and Sandra Oh were eclipsing even the official stars of the show Pompei and Dempsey and more so Heigl and Knight and that his departure in disgrace resolved that problem.But, then again, Washington had a drinking problem and was insensitive, and unprofessional, at least on the set that day.I hope he won't let his issues get in the way of his talent this time.
