Washington out of `Grey’s Anatomy’

Posted in Grey's News, Preston Burke by El Guru on June 17, 2007

LOS ANGELES – Isaiah Washington has lost his job on the hit ABC medical drama “Grey’s Anatomy,” five months after creating a furor with his use of an anti-gay slur. Washington’s contract option was not renewed for next season, series producer ABC Television Studios said Thursday.

“I’m mad as hell and I’m not going to take it anymore,” Washington said in a statement released through his publicist, Howard Bragman, without elaboration.

He drew fire after using the anti-gay epithet backstage at the Golden Globe Awards in January while denying he’d used it previously on the set against cast mate T.R. Knight.

Well, I am sure this answers one of the many questions many of us had about the dramatic season finale last month.  It is going to be rather odd starting season 4 without Preston Burke.
