Katherine Heigl, T.R. Knight leaving 'Grey's Anatomy'



Tbdknightheigl021109 Finally, after months and months of dull subplots and ridiculous shenanigans, Katherine Heigl and T.R. Knight are leaving Grey's Anatomy, Us reports. Don't let the gurney hit you on the way out.

James Pickens Jr., or The Chief, as you'd know him, told the mag Heigl, 30, was moving on when pressed: "Yes, she is. Wherever Katherine goes, I wish her nothing but the best."

And Knight? "He's going too," Pickens said. "He just wanted to pursue other career paths."

ABC has not confirmed the departures, but Us says Knight, 35, has had plenty of discussions with creator Shonda Rhimes. The "writers are scrambling to find a believable exit for George, one that would leave the door open for him to come back someday," a source says.

And as for Heigl, we've probably just found out how she's being ditched, if we're right about thinking those blood tests between cancer and anemia were mixed up. Then again, the whole show's on life support, isn't it?
