T.R. Knight is staying on “Grey’s Anatomy” and getting a raise . Maybe he can lend Isaiah a few bucks.
T.R. Knight, a.k.a. the lovable George O’Malley, is expected to return as a series regular. Speculation has been swirling about his possible departure from Seattle Grace — not only because of what happened in the May 17 finale (George didn’t pass the intern exam!) but because of the incident earlier this season with co-star Isaiah Washington (who addressed him with a homophobic slur). According to one insider close to the negotiation, Knight has agreed to a new contract that will boost his per-episode salary to roughly $125,000 and give him a small piece of the show profits (pay hikes and profit points were also granted to many of Knight’s co-stars, including Patrick Dempsey, Ellen Pompeo, and Sandra Oh).
A couple of mill a year ain’t bad for a cutesy lil’ gay! Go on with your bad self! He’s really leading the charge for short-looking gays everywhere. I’m only 5’8 and I feel he’s really opened doors for people like me. Screw those tall meth queens at brunch, all blond-highlighted with the cut-off t-shirts and the gym bunny abs. It’s short and stumpy for 2008!
