Denzel Washington is indeed joining Grey’s Anatomy. But unfortunately he won’t be putting on a white coat. He won’t even be getting sick or hurt. He’s going to be behind the camera.
It was just announced that in addition to producing and directing several adaptations of August Wilson’s plays for HBO, Washington will also be directing an episode of Grey’ Anatomy. Sounds like he’s keen on a new profession.
Washington will be directing the ninth episode of Grey’s this season and will begin shooting it later this month. It will mark his directorial debut on TV.
Yes, that’s pretty cool and all, but we’d still rather see him in front of the camera. Surprise us Denzel!
Grey’s Anatomy airs Thursdays at 8ET/PT on CTV
