Isaiah Washington Goes Bionic
The scandalous firing of "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington will have a repercussion we didn't see coming. That superpowered "Bionic Woman" Jamie (Michelle Ryan) may have to kick his ass.
NBC is expected to announce today that Washington will join its high-profile remake of the classic 1970s sci-fi drama for at least 5 episodes. Washington has allegedly also pitched an action drama to the network for its 2008-2009 season.
USA Today reports the actor will play an outsider with a mysterious agenda and may help Jamie or turn against her.
NBC had already been tied to Washington's name last month when rumor had it the actor, who had just finished his Anger Management Media Tour with a pre-taped appearance on Larry King (Not That) LIVE, would join its veteran drama "Law & Order."
So, let's see... Since he took over NBC, the new president Ben Silverman resurrected "The Apprentice" and hired Isaiah Washington. I wonder if canceling "Friday Night Lights" is next on his agenda. Is this really the man who helped create "Ugly Betty"?
