T.R. Knight "Blue" About "Grey's" Incident
T.R. Knight, who plays the beloved George "McCuddly" O'Malley on ABC's mega-hit "Grey's Anatomy," has given an interview to The Advocate magazine (out June 19) in which he dodges direct questions about the Isaiah incident in a telling manner.
The October 2006 on-set incident suggested T.R.'s castmate Isaiah Washington was a homophobe and it forced the gay actor out of the closet. Significant repercussions at the hand of series creator Shonda Rhimes never materialized even after a repeat offensive in January.
AfterElton.com obtained the following excerpt from the interview:
"When asked if Washington had apologized to him personally, Knight initially responded, 'Which time?' Then, when pressed, he said, 'What a lovely blue sky.' When queried about whether Rhimes had come to him and asked what he wanted to happen, he paused thoughtfully before saying, 'I like blueberries. Do you like blueberries?'"
The fate of both characters on the show remains uncertain following the third season finale which aired on Thursday night.
