America yawns as T.R. Knight officially leaves Grey's Anatomy
Can we all breathe one collective sigh of relief now?
I'm not trying to knock Knight at all by saying this, but I'm glad we finally have a resolution here. I'll miss him on the show (George's quirkiness and humor were a huge part of what initially drew me in to Grey's Anatomy), but after the whole mess with Isaiah Washington and three seasons of will he stay or will he go, I'm happy that it's finally over.Seriously, though: between Knight and Katherine Heigl, we here at TV Squad have no less than a dozen posts in the past year talking about rumors and speculations and what-ifs. I'm tired of blogging about it.
According to Ausiello, there had been some chatter that given George's horribly disfigured face at the end of the season, maybe another actor could portray him thanks to the magic of plastic surgery. Sounds like that won't happen, but considering all the shows that have now been canceled and all the actors that are looking for work, I'll be the first to eat crow when my next blog entry is titled "Jim Belushi cast as George O'Malley."
