    Finally! I think he’s so underappreciated as an actor. He’s been amazing in everything he’s been in. It should have been Pacey’s Creek. (love Joey and Pacey!)

    Televisionary has a review of the pilot script:

    Looks like JJ Abrams has another hit on his hands.

  • Zac Fan

    Completely agree with you Suzie (#13)! :-)

    This is exciting news…I was sad when I didn’t get to see Josh on Grey’s Anatomy after all. I hope this works out well for him. I know I’ll watch. :-)

  • Not so good
  • Lorelai

    So… i guess this completely finishes his chances of appearing on Greys Anatomy like he was supposed to before the strike, right?

  • AnIntelligentMind

    I didn’t know he was slated for a GA appearance. Was it going to be a recurring role?

  • l in philly

    Joshua Jackson is an awful actor…just dreadful. I’m bored to death watching this kid. Fringe has several problems, but I would put the casting of this bore as number 1.
