Isaiah Washington is back on 'Greys Anatomy' as Preston Burke, but why did he ever leave?
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 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.

Isaiah Washington is back on 'Grey's Anatomy.'
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. Thursday's episode saw him offer Sandra Oh's character Christina Yang the chance to run a hospital in Zurich - after leaving her at the alter all those years ago.
Isaiah Washington Is Back On Grey's Anatomy

This week Grey's Anatomy celebrates 200 episodes, but life on set wasn't always sunshine and roses.
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.
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.
'Blue Caprice' is a complex and shocking movie, led powerfully by 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.

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.

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.

Most freely adapted from Shakespeare, "Romeo Must Die" is a pounding-adrenaline martial arts action flick with a rival gang romance subplot that seems to have lifted more from "Macbeth" than "Romeo and Juliet" -- mainly that it's full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
The marquee-topping American debut of Jet Li -- the high-kicking crown prince of Hong Kong kung fu movies and the bad guy from "Lethal Weapon 4" -- this MTV-minded festival of bullets and flying fists is a very slick affair. Taking a cue from "The Matrix," cinematographer Andrzej Bartkowiak (who shot "LW4") makes an action extravaganza of his first directing effort by employing suspension-wire acrobatics and a souped-up version of the now-famous rotating freeze-frame technique to enhance Li's 200-octane fight sequences.
Right out of the gate, Li kicks the asses of half a dozen Hong Kong prison guards, while hanging upside-down, one-legged, from a chain in a torture chamber. The raucous scene turns into a spectacular jailbreak, inspired by Li's desire to get to America and avenge the murder of his gangster brother.
