Are You Surprised by T.R. Knight's Comments About Grey's?

T.R. Knight landed on the cover of Entertainment Weekly, finally opening up about his big decision to leave Grey's Anatomy. He essentially chalks up the move to his disagreements with the show's executive producer, Shonda Rimes, and the fallout from Isaiah Washington's profanity-laced tirade in 2006. He said:

  • On his frustration: "My five-year experience proved to me that I could not trust any answer that was given [about George]."
  • On coming out publicly after Isaiah's incident: "I think she was concerned about having my statement come out so close to the [initial] event."
  • On leaving his $14 million contract: "From an outsider's perspective, I get the [impression that] 'He’s just a spoiled actor…he doesn’t know how good he has it. There are a lot of people who would like to be in my position. But in the end, I need to be fulfilled in my work."


It's interesting to finally hear the backstory after years of rumors about the show and its cast, so tell us — are you surprised T.R. Knight is finally making a comment?
