Isaiah Washington Set To Return To ‘Grey’s Anatomy”
Looks like Grey’s Anatomy wants that old thing back!
According to People, Isaiah Washington will return to Grey’s as Dr. Preston Burke this spring for one episode.
It’s been seven years since Washington was fired from the ABC drama after using homophobic slurs during a fight with co-star Patrick Dempsey. During that time it was rumored that Isaiah hurled the F-word toward gay cast member T.R. Knight, but he has always denied that allegation.
HipHollywood recently spoke to Washington who told us that he was “happy” the whole ugly incident happened.
This Spring Sandra Oh, who plays Cristina Yang, is set to leave the show. According to “GA” creator Shonda Rhimes, it’s imperative that Preston, who was left at the alter by Yang, returns to wrap up her journey. “It’s important to me that Cristina’s journey unfolds exactly as it should,” Rhimes said in a statement. “Burke is vital to that journey – he gives her story that full-circle moment we need to properly say goodbye to our beloved Cristina Yang.”
