T.R. Knight leaving Grey's Anatomy

Actor T.R. Knight has asked to be released from his contract with ABC's hit show Grey's Anatomy.

According to an exclusive from EW, the request is set to be granted by ABC and Grey's show-runner Shonda Rhimes with a source saying "They're working out the details now."

Contrary to other reports, Knight is said to be still working on the show, and hasn't walked out, at least not yet.

Knight was the center of a scandal in 2007 involving Isaiah Washington referring to him as a faggot (Knight is gay). Various reports since have Knight being unhappy working on the show despite Washington being fired.
