One story that got the room buzzing this morning at the TCA press tour  was the news that Isaiah Washington will be joining the cast of "Bionic Woman,"  appearing in five of the show's early episodes.
NBC entertainment co-chairman Ben Silverman said NBC had been talking to Washington even before he was ousted from "Grey's Anatomy."  Despite the controversy that has surrounded him, Silverman said he wasn't worried about alienating part of "Bionic Woman"'s potential audience. "The bottom line is he's a wonderful actor," Silverman said. "We think, inside 'Bionic Woman,' the character that's been created for him is very strong and one that he'll do a great job at." According to USA Today, Washington will "play an outsider with a mysterious agenda" who will either help the main character or try to undermine her.
Whatever the circumstances surrounding Washington's firing by ABC, I'm glad that he's moving on — and maybe now we can all focus on his acting again. What do you think? Will you be able to watch him without thinking about the "Grey's" mess?
