T.R. Knight Quits Grey's Anatomy?

T.R. Knight Quits Grey's Anatomy?

T.R. Knight, aka Dr. George O’ Malley, has walked off the set of Grey’s Anatomy and quit, according to an entertainment lawyer at

Reports the source, “So, I got a little more information from my source and they say, “He hasn’t attended table reads since episode 2. He is pissed and miserable and thinks his story line is stupid. He said goodbye to his hair and makeup people last week. He says he is done and has quit. ABC has not released him. Shondra Rhimes, the producer called him and he told her he had nothing to say. He has packed his dressing room.”

DO YOU THINK TR Knight really quit Grey’s?

UPDATE: A Grey’s rep tells these rumors are not true. Says rep, “T.R. has never walked off set in the middle of filming. He attended the table read today and will be shooting this week, like any other week of production.”

    Seems so! I’m sorry for the show.

  • April

    stick a fork in, Grey’s Anatomy is DONE

  • Rebecca

    Stupid… guess he can go back to being a nobody… Might see him one day offering frries with that Big Mac,

  • destiny

    i actually like him but if that’s true…what the heck is wrong with him? he’s an actor, and not the script writer or producer of the show

  • brandi

    wow….how mature!

    if brooke can get over the fact that she was fired due to reasons other than her character being a lesbo tr can get over it too…this has been what alot of his huge stink has been about…yeah stand up for what you believe in but dont put your job at risk…

    hopefully he has enough cash to buy out his contract cause hes up shit creek without a paddle in legal action!

  • Bye George!

    That’s too bad but not surprising. Kristen and Ausiello both have blind items talking about a Grey’s actor losing their job. This looks like TR quit before he was fired. He’s better off leaving the sinking ship, the show has become unwatchable.

  • Samantha

    why do ppl from grey’s anatomy leave the show? First, it was Burke (Isaiah Washington-got fired for the slur), then Addison Montgomery (Kate Walsh-left for Private Practice), next would be Brooke Smith (Erica Hahn-got fired for her lesbian role or otherwise what ABC says, her character did not have the chemistry and magic), and now TR…..this is extremely sad

    I love the show but seriously….I would appreciate it if they don’t move the cast too much

  • Twifanatic Amanda

    shit, I hope not.

  • T

    I wouldn’t want to continue working there after all the drama and thepersonally offensive things which had happened to him there, so good for him if it’s true.

  • kacey

    i dont really care about George’s character being gone, but that does not look good for TR. it’s gonna be hard to find a job with a rep like that…but i’ll still miss him.

  • Katie

    What a diva.

  • Kristine

    i think after the Burke thing the show hasn’t been the same…so I dont care about Grey’s any more….It was my favorite show for a while…

  • jade

    I bet it is for publicity

  • Cameron

    Damn. I was hoping it was Hi-gel!

  • bmw

    As long as there is still Meredith and Derek, the show will go on.

  • Nicole

    If he is out, i am done with this show, it been going downhill anyway.

  • biatch

    they reduced his airtime once this season started, he should be pissed.
    nothing was going for him. divorce to callie, izzie relationship did not last
    what was next, lexie? since she’s in love with him or whatever.

  • daisy

    The first season of the show was good, but it’s really gone downhill. The writing is just over the top. Last commercial I saw for it was about some ship accident or something and Meredith fell in the water. It had potential.

  • thank GOD

    typical gay angst!they PMS worse than girls!

  • mrs channing tatum

    i wish he would quit
    he doesnt do a very good job at acting i dont think

  • Common Sense

    Uh, T.R., Katherine Heigl (thinks) she can afford to be a b*tch because of her films- YOU HAVE NO SUCH PROTECTION. You’d better get your a$$ back on that set if you ever want to work again!

  • Amy

    Grey’s has started sinking anyway, good on him leaving a sinking ship. They fucked up his character beyond belief, I’d be pissed too.

  • Al

    What a diva!

    Be’yotch is getting too big for his britches.
    He was a nobody and will be a nobody in the time to come. Goodbye and good riddance TR

  • lene

    Well, then send George and Izzie of… TOGETHER! They have so much chemistery.
    alex/izzi suck together.

  • nikki

    i don’t think any of us should jump to conclusions.

    none of us know what went down on that set that could have made this happen. Maybe something offensive was said to him, maybe their is some political stuff going on behind the scenes and he got tired.

    I like to give people the benefit of the doubt, so never make assumptions without knowing all the facts.

    I wish him luck, but I am very sad he will no longer be on the show, though it is hideous now anyway.

  • Simplydivine

    Who cares

  • lots

    i dont like the izzy and dead guy thing

  • HeyJude

    I think that all of the actors believe that they are all that and more, when in reality the only one on the show I like is Sandra Oh. Katherine Heigl is paid way too much, and she is not a good actress on Grey’s Anatomy. Meredith sucks as an actress, too ‘blah’ for me. This show went to their heads, thinking they were the #1 show, and now it’s going down hill. I also thought Burke was good with Sandra. It’s not the same with him gone. T.R, go work in sales, buddy…..

  • ladybug

    the show used to be must watch tv for me. since isaiah washington was fired it has been a load of crap (and not simply due to the departure of one of the strongest characters). tr’s character is sniveling and annoying, much like the actor it sounds like. abc will probably ax the show in the next couple of years.

  • kim


  • Cindy

    If this is true….he is stupid!

  • McKayla is fo sho and thats no

    grey’s is my favorite show but ugh its becoming so stupid now. like denny and izzie having sex when he is obviously dead?!

    its becoming such crap lately.

  • tom

    He couldn’t even act so he should just have been thankful that he was in a hit show, on a Thursday slot. If it’s true that’s real immature of him.

  • Kim

    The site you listed makes my computer lock up. Tells me it is not legit cause I have seen that same problem reported on other sites that are reporting this rumor.

  • goodbye ga

    Don’t blame him for quitting. Used to love the show but the storylines have been really bad lately and I have quit watching it it’s gotten so bad-I don’t blame him, the show sucks!

  • eh


  • shelly

    How would this even be impossible? I’m sure ABC has him under contract – he couldn’t just walk off like that without getting sued and I’ll bet he knows that. Sounds like BS to me. Not that I care – I’m a House fan.

  • kar

    OMG is there NOTHING but drama there? This show used to be must watch tv but now it just is crazy load of garbage. Why is it still on air? Or why dont the network fix it?

  • sarah

    Thats what happnes when you get drag queens on your show…oops I mean drama queens, my bad. I am always getting those two confused.

  • Bren

    Greys is DONE. Show needs overhauling

  • kare2b37

    Thanks for the update but it still doesnt make sense. He’s been off the storyline since the second episode and he’s finally making his way back to the table readings? Sounds like someone waved a little thing called a contract at Mr. TR to remind him of his obligations.

  • nk

    what a drama queen… who cares about the show anyway.

  • Jill

    Who cares

    Second that.

  • rossy40

    Have any of you naysayers given a single thought to perhaps an easier reason? The show’s plots & writing has really gone to hell. Perhaps he just wants to get out before this show tanks. The 1st 2 seasons were GREAT – But these last 2 don’t seem to know where it’s going…

    I’d rather end up in a hospital like the fictional Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital – Where House (Hugh Laurie) can be at his sarcastic, egotistical best. Hell, he’s a junkie & I’d fall at his feet before EVER stepping into the so-called “teaching hospital” of Seattle Grace… Thank God I’m NOT sick, & it’s NOT real… Or is it? Are there hospital like this out there – I hope not. At least not the latter.

  • gerard Vandenberg

    ………………….PLEASE DO!!
    Thank you so much!!

  • mcdreamy

    err, actually this show is getting blur and blurrer. the izzie with the ghost are so freakin weird. the writters should consider to change the storyline!

  • shelley

    well greys anatomy is getting stupid in some story line and it kinda suck starting with the ghost thing sooo annoying.. and if they gave O’Malley a crappy script like he saw his dead father crap.. then its really anyways i like season 1 and 2 much better than the other season

  • Betty

    i dont really care about George’s character being gone

  • AJ

    The little fag should quit. I would hope he gets fired. He is not good
    for the show. They should also fire Katherine Heighl simply because she smokes. She is also a bad actress

  • jill

    YES!! NOW THEY CAN BRING BACK DR. BURKE!! =D i miss him and christina together!!
