In an exclusive interview with EW.com, actor Isaiah Washington sounded off on what the future holds now that he won’t be returning to GREY’S ANATOMY.
EW: What type of offers have you received?
ISAIAH: I’ve gotten a ton of offers in both film and TV, and now my agent Ben Press and I are just sorting through all the options. There is one network in particular that’s very interested. But I don’t want to say anything specific until it’s a done deal.
Now I’m no network executive (clearly my TV tastes are far too smart to slum it), but how about this for the most brilliant move ever — Dr. Burke, looking for a change of scenery following his
anti-gay slur wedding being called off should hop on the next flight and take a job at County General. Yes, you heard me. Signing Isaiah Washington would not only be the shot in the arm ER so desperately needs, it would completely re-ignite interest in NBC’s aging medical drama. Ben Silverman, you can thank me anytime.
