So, I figured I would give everyone a TR Knight update. Why the hell not. I don't even really like the show so watching all the drama take place was just kind of humorous to me. I have no vested interest in any of the characters. Now, if they were trying to show Alton Brown the door over at Food Network, then I would be upset.
From what I understand, yesterday US Weekly and a bunch of other mags decided to descend onto the set of Grey's while everyone else worked the phones. Who cares? It is one guy on a show that is collapsing before our eyes. Anyway, US managed to get a statement from some spokes person over at Grey's who said TR had never walked off the set during filming and that he was at the table read yesterday. I never said he had walked off the set during filming. He is not that big of an ass. Plus, the statement didn't say anything about all the other table reads he did miss. TR was on the set yesterday. He and Katherine Heigl kind of stayed by themselves in a corner.
The statement made yesterday by the spokesperson over at Grey's made it all sound like everything is rosy and that everyone is one big happy family. Kind of like the Griswold's at Christmas. Geez. Two Vacation references in consecutive days. That is some kind of record.
According to Entertainment Weekly and The Huffington Post. Seriously? The Huffington Post? You would think they would have something better to do over there. Anyway, they are reporting today that "Multiple sources confirm that T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract, a request that both ABC and Grey's show-runner Shonda Rhimes appear poised to grant. "They're working out the details now," whispers an ABC insider. (A network rep was unavailable for comment.)"
I think when TR walked off the set and quit, I think someone reminded him he was under contract and get his butt back to work. But, no one wants an unhappy employee so now he is saying bye bye without having to worry about pesky little things like contracts.
