Isaiah Washington Returns To 'Grey's Anatomy', With A Controversial Past


Isaiah Washington

Isaiah Washington made his return to 'Grey’s Anatomy' last night, seven years after he was axed from the show amid a storm of controversy. A on set incident involving co-star T.R. Knight saw Isaiah’s Grey’s run come to an end and Dr Preston Burke gone from Seattle Grace. So now he’s back, what exactly happened all that time ago.

Isaiah Washington Grey's Anatomy Isaiah Washington has returned to Grey's Anatomy

Isaiah Washington joined the 'Grey’s Anatomy' cast in 2005 for the series first season. He played Dr Preston Burke, a gifted and brilliant cardiothoracic surgeon. For his portrayal of Burke Washington earned two NAACP Image Awards for Outstanding Actor in a Drama Series, as well as a Screen Actors Guild Award. Whilst Burke was a focal point of the show’s early seasons, his most memorable story line was his romance with intern Cristina Yang, played by Sandra Oh. Yang was the determined intern who had a thing for “cardio-gods” and her and Burke’s romance became one of the show’s main talking points. When Burke proposed to Yang, it looked as if Cristina, who had always shunned emotion to focus on her career, was going to get her happy ending. Little did viewers know, a backstage scandal was about to erupt that would change the course of Grey’s Anatomy and the upcoming wedding of the two major characters.

Actor Isaiah Washington has reprised his role as Dr Preston Burke on Grey's Anatomy, seven years after he was fired from the medical drama for making a homophobic slur.

On The Eve Of The 200th "Grey's Anatomy" Episode, Ellen Pompeo Dishes On Drama, Celebrations And Former Colleagues


Ellen Pompeo Katherine Heigl Patrick Dempsey Sandra Oh Isaiah Washington Chandra Wilson

Drama rules on Grey’s Anatomy – so much so, that quite a lot of it appears to have crossed over from the screen to the actual set, Grey’s star Ellen Pompeo revealed in a recent interview with The New York Post. The Post caught up with Ellen Pompeo and the rest of the Grey’s cast (or what remains of it, at least) on set for the TV drama’s 200th episode, which also happens to be a party – on screen, as well as in real life.

Ellen Pompeo, Grey's Anatomy 200 Episodes Party
Pompeo has tried to steer clear of the drama, surrounding some cast members' departures.

Creator Shonda Rimes, the cast and crew do have a lot to celebrate – over its 200 episodes, Grey’s has become a television staple, up there in the bastion with shows like Friends and CSI: Miami. But success didn’t come without plenty of growing pains, and star Ellen Pompeo, who plays Dr. Meredith Grey on the show, finally let the word out on how and why a lot of the cast drama happened – particularly with Katherine Heigl, who played Dr Izzie Stevens on Grey’s Anatomy.

Isaiah Washington Shines as 'Blue Caprice' Recalls Beltway Sniper Attacks


Isaiah Washington

Blue Caprice, which opens in the U.S. on Friday (September 27, 2013), follows the story of an abandoned boy lured to America and drawn into the shadow of a dangerous father figure. Same old story right? Well, not exactly. Alexandre Moors' new movie is inspired by the real life events that led to the 2002 Beltway sniper attacks. 

In October 2002, ten people were killed and three other victims critically injured in several locations throughout the Washington D.C. metropolitan area and along Interstate 95 in Virginia after John Allen Muhammad and Lee Bod Malvo went on a sniper rampage in a 1990 Chevrolet Caprice sedan. 

The movie documents the mechanisms that lead its subjects to embrace physical violence and paints a riveting portrait of 21st-century America and its cold-blood killers.

Exit Wounds Review


Terrible
To watch a Steven Seagal film, one must fully suspend all disbelief. And to fully enjoy the audacity of Seagal, one must ignore all of the consequences associated with the following: Starting fistfights with large men in flashy nightclubs, destroying everything in sight along the way. Surviving every semi-automatic gun battle and car crash without a scratch. Purchasing Italian racing cars with bundles of $100 bills stuffed in a gym bag. Actually being able to cash out stock options from a dot-com and then creating a private surveillance unit devoted to uncovering a ring of corrupt Detroit cops involved in smuggling heroin inside of sweatshop-produced t-shirts. OK... maybe that corrupt cops thing is a bit hard to swallow.

I remember a time when I used to enjoy Seagal. Such films as Above the Law, Hard to Kill, Marked for Death, Under Siege, and Out for Justice are all solid action films from the '90s. Under Siege is even kind of good. But lately, films like Under Siege 2, Fire Down Below, and The Patriot have shown the age of the Italian stallion of Aikido.

Romeo Must Die Review


Unbearable
Romeo Must Die is a jetliner of a film headed straight for black ice. Namely, it subsists on ridiculous action sequences meshed together by predictable plot points and truly horrible acting. Fueled by the "Monopoly Money" pockets of Joel Silver - the guy responsible for such titles as The Matrix, the Lethal Weapon series, and Richie Rich - this movie is bad. Really bad.

It's such a damn shame when such a talent and versatile actors like Jet Li and Delroy Lindo re subjected to portray such stereotypical, mundane, pointless characters. To all those who are unaware of Jet Li, stop reading right now and run down to your local video story and ask for Once Upon a Time in China, Bodyguard from Beijing, and Hitman. You might have seen him in that techno-redubbed version of Black Mask or as the evil Chinese bad guy in Lethal Weapon 4 that had be shot and stabbed before Mel Gibson could save face and not get his ass kicked again. But Jet Li's character in Romeo Must Die reminds me of the circus clown hired to keep the kiddies smiling in the film.

Hollywood Homicide Review


Grim
Ron Shelton fans (you know who you are) will be happy to hear that Hollywood Homicide improves on Dark Blue, the director's failed LAPD endeavor from earlier this year. But that's like saying white paint tastes a little better than purple paint. For the sake of your health, neither should be ingested.

As part of its tired buddy-cop routine, Homicide suggests that everyone in La La Land works one career but dreams of another. Cops want to be real estate brokers, musicians want to be actors. So it's only appropriate that the film plays along with this concept, laboring as a police investigation by day and moonlighting as an entertainment industry spoof after hours.

This Girl's Life Review


OK
The girl's life in question is one of a porn star, in case you're wondering.

Newcomer Juliette Marquis is the girl -- with the stage name of Moon -- and the film takes us through a smattering of adventures in her life. She has to pick a guy to star with in a scene (with a geriatric applicant among the choices), she takes care of her father (James Woods), who suffers from Parkinson's, and she decides to start a small business playing femme fatale for women worried their significant others may be tempted to cheat on them.

Ghost Ship Review


Weak
Ghost Ship opens with one of the most gruesome, gratuitous, and swiftest slaughters in recent memory. Without warning, dozens of passengers aboard a luxurious Italian luxury liner are sliced in half by a makeshift wire device running from the bow of the ship to the stern. The effect - and the ensuing bloody panic - is pretty cool, even if I still can't quite figure out how it worked. The entire sequence doesn't justify you paying to see Ship, but it does mean you should arrive on time if indeed you opt to go.

Asking the rest of the film to live up to such a ghastly opening is like asking a rinky-dink tugboat to tow a mammoth ocean liner across the ocean. Ironically, that's exactly what Ghost Ship does. Sean Murphy (Gabriel Byrne) owns the tugboat in question, and he employs "the best damn salvage crew in the business." In reality, they're a tough-talking, hard-drinking cast of carefully handpicked racial stereotypes, from an African-American first mate (Isaiah Washington) to a Mexican engineer (Alex Dimitriades) to an Italian salvage team leader (Julianna Margulies), who's a female, to boot.

Welcome to Collinwood Review


Excellent
Among the ever-impressive list of projects undertaken by Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney's Section Eight production group (Ocean's Eleven, this year's Insomnia), the ironically titled Welcome to Collinwood is one of the best. Anthony and Joe Russo's lovable crime comedy, which boasts a talented comic cast -- including Clooney himself, in a small but invaluable role -- is the finest debut by a creative team since the Wachowski brothers (The Matrix) made Bound.

Basing their premiere feature on the little-seen Italian comedy Big Deal on Madonna Street (1958), the writing, directing Russos set their film -- a finely tuned, brilliantly designed, screwball romp -- in the Ohio city of the title, which they've drawn as decrepit, to say the least. Collinwood is painted as low rent, low wage, and low class, where every sidewalk square is cracked and so are the people that walk on them.
