February 10, 2009

(ChattahBox) — Malcontents Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are reportedly quitting Grey’s Anatomy. Both actors have in the past publicly expressed their dissatisfaction with the TV drama. With Heigl complaining about story lines for her character Izzie Stevens. Similarly, Knight has publicly complained about his lack of screen time and was reportedly threatening to leave the show earlier this season. ABC entertainment chief Stephen McPherson told TV critics last month that he expected Knight to return next season. But their co-star James Pickens Jr. has now told Us Weekly:

“Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best,” Pickens said. He also confirmed Knight was on the way out too. “He’s going too,” Pickens said. of Knight “He just wanted to pursue other career paths.”

This hasn’t been confirmed by the show, although, a source says the writers and Shondra Rhimes are trying to find a way to write the two out of the show. Both characters are expected to make their last appearance on the show’s season finale.
