Patrick Dempsey Shows Commitment to Seattle in Interest to Buy Coffee Shop Chain

Patrick Dempsey is McDreamy in real life as well. One of the stars of the hit American medical drama Grey's Anatomy, playing the desirable neurosurgeon, Dr Shepherd, or as the other characters refer to him- McDreamy- Dempsey has spent a lot of time in Seattle for many years, as the show is set and filmed there. The actor has come to love the city so much that he's leading a pack of investors, set to buy the bankrupt coffee chain Tully's and turn it around.

"I'm excited about the opportunity to save hundreds of jobs, give back to Seattle and become a larger part of the economic growth and fabric of the community," he told E!. "I've always loved this city, and with the purchase of Tully's Coffee, I plan to spend a lot of time in Seattle and at the stores connecting with the community and growing the Tully's brand. It looks like Seattle may be my home away from home in the very near future." 

A bankruptcy auction is set to be held in early January in which Dempsey and the rest of his business partners will be bidding. We hope he wins, there's almost nothing better in life than the prospect of being served coffee by Patrick Dempsey. According to Vanity Fair the buy would save 500 jobs and be just another of the good deeds the actor has done for Seattle based institutions- he's also raised almost half a million dollars for the children's hospital there.
