Former “Grey’s Anatomy” star T.R Knight – he played the kindly George, the young scrubber who met his demise at the hands of a bus bumper – has landed a role in the Jackie Robinson baseball biopic “42”. Chadwick Boseman’s playing Robinson and Harrison Ford (seemingly out of his manic stage, if his more appealing project picks of late are anything to go by) is Dodgers general manager, Branch Rickey. Not bad company for a former soap star to be in (but hey! David Hasselhoff’s got “Piranha 3DD” on the way – – so TR’s not alone there!).
According to THR, Knight’s playing Harold Parrott, who has to answer to those who come out throwing tomatoes at the team when they take on Robinson.
Meanwhile, Knight’s former co-star Katherine Heigl begs for her old job back. Even offering to take the “shittiest” lines available if someone can work out a way for Izzie to return to Seattle Grace.
