James Pickens Jr.
Hey Grey’s Army,
Shonda Rhimes has spoken! She chatted with the folks over at Entertainment Weekly about the fates of Webber, Calzona, and Crowen.
What she had to say about Richard:
So have we said goodbye to yet another member of our beloved team of doctors? “That’s such an interesting question! I love that people are asking that question,” Rhimes told EW last night at an event at the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences that honored the second season finale of her latest hit drama Scandal. “I’m not going to answer it because I like that it’s a question. I will tell you that you will see Jim Pickens again, but I’m not going to answer the question.”
On the upheaval of Calzona:
Rhimes says, “I feel like a lot of LGBT characters on television — and I hopefully don’t fall into this category — are sort of sanitized for our protection. They are happily in love and they hardly ever do anything wrong and they never cheat and they’re never too sexual and they don’t have any other storylines except about them being gay. I felt like I wanted to give them a complex storyline that wasn’t about that.”
Discussing the end of Crowen:
“I think Owen and Christina have been on a very very long journey that’s been really complicated for both of them,” Rhimes says. “I feel like there’s a sense that this is the end of the journey that they’ve been on for two seasons that was sort of messed up by the fact that she was in the plane crash….they were finally forced to have the conversation that neither of them wanted to have and it was a very honest conversation. She walked away and he did not follow, so how they’re going to cope with that is going to be something.”

As per usual with Shonda, I have more questions than answers…
What do you make of what she said about Webber’s fate? How about her thoughts on the effects the plane crash had on Arizona? Do you feel like Crowen is really done or is Shonda going to leave that door open?
What say you???
Yours in Grey’s, Pam Fier
Greetings Grey’s Fam!
You all still holding hands and hugging friends after last night’s finale? Yeah, me too. But not for the reason you may think. After all the hype and focus on Arizona’s infidelity and the concerns on the outcome of Meredith and the baby, the hint Shonda dropped that one of the doctor’s lives would hang in the balance seems to have gotten lost in the shuffle. Maybe we all assumed it was Meredith she was speaking of. There were definitely nail-biting moments there. Then I thought, for sure, Jackson was a goner trying to rescue that little girl from the bus. But, in the literal last moment of the finale, we see one of the hospital’s pillars laid out flat in the basement!
Is Richard Dead?
Want to know what is definitely NOT awesome? Richard looking pretty darn lifeless at the end of this season 9 finale having been electrocuted (!) while down in the depths of the hospital trying to restore the power. So help me, if Richard is dead … I can’t talk about it. Not my Richard.
Hey, fab Gabblers!
James Pickens Jr. can be seen featured in the new movie “42″, opening in theaters today! Check out this interview as he chats about himself, Grey’s Anatomy, and his movie!
Known for his most notable role as Dr. Richard Webber on Grey’s Anatomy, James Pickens Jr. joined Pat Prescott in studio to talk about his significant role in 42, the story about baseball legend Jackie Robinson.
Though his role is small, James is featured in a significant scene where he opens up his home to Jackie during his first year of Spring Training because he wasn’t allowed to stay with the rest of the team.
James adds that telling the story of Jackie Robinson is important, especially for this generation who may not know about the strides he made not only in baseball but with civil rights.
“I think we really don’t know his importance of what he did and the impact he caused – he didn’t just open up baseball, but it opened up on how we viewed ourselves and how we had to make change,” said James.

James is just so smooth lol I love him as an actor and I look forward to seeing him more on Grey’s Anatomy and in “42″! P.S. Did he say the GA season 9 finale was gonna be a cliff hanger?
Check out these pics of some of the GA cast (past and present) at the L.A. premiere of T.R. Knight and James Picken’s Jr. new movie “42″!
This is so great! If only there were a picture of them all together “42″ looks like it’s a good movie. It’s the biopic of baseball legend, Jackie Robinson, and I bet both T.R. and James are great in it! Think you’ll be seeing it?
