GREY’S | Totally predictable casting spoilers

In Grey's Anatomy on June 19, 2009 at 2:16 pm

If you’ve managed to avoid this news in entertainment circles over the last couple days, I’ll do what I can to help you by putting it after the jump.

T.R. Knight is out as George O’Malley, and Shonda Rhimes has issued yet another disingenuous statement. It would appear that Katherine Heigl will return for another season on the Grey‘s merry-go-round. (On a related note, Jessica Capshaw has been promoted to series regular.)

There’s been some speculation that the O’Malley character could survive, have reconstructive facial surgery, and be played by a different actor. I can’t imagine that this would be well-received.

Here at Manifesto HQ, we’re batting around another long-shot theory, which might sound crazier if not for last season’s Izzie-Dead Denny storylines. With both George and Izzie’s lives hanging in the balance, what if Izzie gets George’s brain in a ridiculous body-swapping buddy comedy scenario? Sounds far-fetched, I know, but I won’t be shocked if at least one of George’s organs ends up saving Izzie’s life.

The Grey’s and Private Practice writers went back to work earlier this month, according to Rhimes’ Twitter account.
