TVGuide.com’s Michael Ausiello is reporting that embattled GREY’S ANATOMY star Isaiah Washington, who plays Dr. Preston Burke, will not be returning to the show next season. Revealed a spy close to the production:
There was a pattern of problematic behavior going back before he used the F-word, I imagine [his dismissal] was the result of all of that.”
An ABC spokesperson has confirmed the story, saying that the actor’s contract option has not been picked up for another season.
Needless to say, this TV Addict was shocked to hear this news so early on a Friday morning. It’s so rare in Hollywood that actors are actually held accountable for their actions and poor misbehavior. Post away with your thoughts.
