Rumor No More: George Wants Out


One of our featured posters shared with us yesterday the rumor that T.R. Knight has been miserable with his Grey's Anatomy storyline and wants out of his contract.


Though his reps vehemently denied this (and an accompanying rumor that he walked out on a script read)...that was yesterday.


Today...every TV news source out there, including the always reliable Michael Ausiello, has stated that Knight has in fact asked to be released from his Grey's contract.


Furthermore, the Grey's producers are expected to oblige. It's currently unknown how he will depart the program.


Ideas?

And will the show take a hit without George or is Grey's quickly morphing into the next ER (as in major characters come and go and it doesn't really matter)?

The writers are running the show into the ground. Izzie & George use to be the most loveable characters on grey's anatomy but they been giving them pretty crappy story line. With Izzie and her craziness and george forever labeled as an intern even though he passed his test. I'm so upset with the show, and what is with sadie?? don't they have enough blondes on the shows. Although I have to say. Dr.Hunt is a great addition.

Would love to see George go! He and Izzy are boring as hell. As for them being to most loveable characters on the show. Maybe ... ... like in season two. But crappy story lines and an affair put pay to that. I think Lil Grey is def adorable as is Mark Sloan in a weird creepy i don't know why kind of way.
Goodbye and goodluck George and Izzy we are only moderatly sorry to see you go! :D
As for Grey's becoming the new ER i think you might be right. It would be great if the should could evolve in that way.

no i think george should stay. they could change the direction his story iline is going but izzy is a good character with her adn her problems,it's interesting to see what happens next to her. george is in a way kind of boring but that could all change. i hope its doenst become like ER i dont like that show.. their show is way better and i think that all the main characters should stay.

I like George character a whole lot, but lately since he and Izzie are not as close, nothing has been happening. I however think that George should not leave. The writers are just doing an all around poor job right now, with every character.
Shonda and the team need to seriously step up their game, the storylines are awful. The only reason I am still watching is because I have watched from the beginning and I am a complete fan. By right now this show is headed downwards.

I can certainly understand why T.R Knight would want out. After the Izzie affair he hasnt had any particularly riviting storylines - his problems always seem more like a little sub plot than anything important. I cant see anything big coming up for him either - it seems like hes just hanging thier only loosly connected to the rest of the characters. Perhaps this is because the writers want to make it a smooth transition from him being there to him not?As for Greys being the next E.R - it certainly looks like it might end up that way!
