Ellen Pompeo

  1. Rosario Dawson, Clerks II, 2005.   New Jersey’s Shakespeare, Kevin Smith, invited Ellen to be Becky. Bad timing. She’d just made the Grey’s Anatomy pilot and it looked like a winner. (Sure was. Ran nine years, 2005-2013, and 209 episodes).
  2. Paula Patton, 2 Guns, 2012.    Pompeo and Marisa Tomei were in the frame for Debs.  But would they have agreed with Patton’s decision to be topless in  a bed scene with Denzel Washington.  She told Icelandic director Baltasar Kormáku: “I can’t believe they would get dressed so soon after making love.”
