Isaiah Washington got into it big time with Patrick Dempsey on the set of ‘Grey’s Anatomy.’ Now TMZ has learned that Washington has had other on-set blowups.
A simmering feud between the two actors bubbled over last week, when Washington reportedly got in Dempsey’s face, said some “disgusting things,” then allegedly pushed “McDreamy” against a wall and choked him. We’re told the incident was so intense it shut down production for a short time.
Now TMZ has learned of two other incidents that make Washington sound like “Dr. McNightmare.” In the year 2000, Washington was shooting the TV show “Soul Food” for Showtime in Toronto. Washington and an actress, who played his wife, were shooting a scene in which Isaiah was supposed to give the woman a superficial kiss. We’re told to the horror of everyone, Washington grabbed the woman and planted a “forceful, aggressive kiss.”
The actress became irate, which then infuriated Washington who began screaming at her. At that point the director stepped in to correct Washington, and the actor went off on him. Executive Producer Tracey Edmonds then took over and Washington went off on her.
According to the story below, the first episode of the new season of The O.C will be shown online October 26th (US time?).
It remains to be seen whether the sites carrying the show will be accessible to overseas net users.
Fox will give Internet users a sneak peak at this season’s first two episodes of “The OC,” while Warner Bros. TV is hoping to drum up support for “The Nine” by offering its pilot episode online for free.
The fourth season premiere of “The OC” is set to air Thursday, Nov. 2, on Fox, but MySpace.com and Fox TV Station Group’s 24 locally owned Fox station Web sites will offer the seg online starting Oct. 26.
The show’s second episode will also debut on MySpace and the Fox station sites a week before air. The Fox sites already stream shows such as “Prison Break,” “Vanished” and “Happy Hour.”
Warner Bros. TV produces “The OC” and is also behind ABC’s critically acclaimed “The Nine,” which has so far struggled in its post-”Lost” Wednesday night slot.
Looking to jumpstart interest in the show, Warner Bros. TV has made the pilot episode of “The Nine” available on Amazon (which actually must charge a penny), iTunes and AOL. Show will be up for two to three weeks.
