T. R. Knight

It was reported last night on KABC news that actor T. R. Knight came out in an interview with People magazine. Allegedly, there was a brawl on the set between Isaiah Washington and Patrick Dempsey where Washington called Knight (who was not involved in the fisticuffs) a 'faggot.'

When Grey's Anatomy first aired, I did a search of Knight, and found a most impressive list of credits. He is, as I'm sure all the actors on the show must be, a consummate professional. The wording of his coming out was certainly a class act all the way (it isn't as if there is much precedence to compare it to). He certainly deserves to hear from the community as a result. T. R. Knight may be contacted c/o

Now, as far as Washington's alleged use of the slur (I haven't seen any actual corroboration as of yet), if it did occur, he better damn well have a better spin doctor than Mel Gibson. And he better get going on doing damage control immediately, if he hasn't already done so.

Frankly, I was already sick of the "McDreamy vs. McSteamy" crap every week. Life's too short as it is to be wasted on such nonsense. Not that I don't have my own list of guilty pleasures... one could hardly watch much network programming for the well-acted and well-written programs alone.
