Isaiah Washington

  1. Patrick Dempsey, Grey’s Anatomy, TV, 2005-     He auditioned for  Dr “McDreamy” Shepherd and won Dr  Preston  Burk. Not for long. Washington was ignominiously fired after the third season for calling co-star TR Knight a faggot. Washington denied everything but Knight and other  co-stars  inisisted the epithet was used.  “I apologised and showed my remorse for what I said and for the pain I caused anyone. If a black man can’t get forgiveness in this country, when so many other people like Robert Downey, Jr. and the governor of California get second and third chances… I think that says a lot about race and this country where we stand.”  (Knight quit in 2009 after five seasons as Dr George O’Malley).
