The post UPDATE: News That Mattered Five Years Ago: Dempsey Leaving ‘Grey’s Anatomy’? appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Patrick Dempsey recently told Italian Vogue that he would not be returning to  ”Grey’s Anatomy.”

There’s not a single part of that sentence that I don’t find hilarious.

Seeing as I assumed he had left the show four years ago, this news comes as a terrible shock. While Dempsey didn’t cite a particular reason for leaving, his deal expires at the end of next year, so the reason was probably “I wanted to get the eff out three years ago, but I didn’t want to get sued.”

Co-star Ellen Pompeo’s contract is up as well after next season, so some questions about the viability of the show are raised by this news. Frankly, questions about the viability of the show were raised a few years ago when the ratings steadily trended downward, but now they’re REALLY being raised. Some believe that this could signal a happy ending for both Dempsey and Pompeo’s characters, who have been romantically involved on the show. However, given the quality of the writing recently, I expect them to get randomly stabbed in the kidneys with screwdrivers, lying in pools of their own blood as the season 8 finale credits roll.

UPDATE: Dempsey isn’t necessarily leaving “Grey’s Anatomy,” according to his publicist. The actor’s rep says he was quoted out-of-context. Apparently, he was really saying his contract is up after next season and he doesn’t know what he’ll do. Thank god there’s still hope… (EW)

7 Zombie Projects We’re Likely To See In 2011 http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/7-zombie-projects-were-likely-to-see-in-2011/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/7-zombie-projects-were-likely-to-see-in-2011/#comments Tue, 04 Jan 2011 16:40:53 +0000 Jame Gumb http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=13990 Some will be entertaining, most will be unwatchable, but each project will push us closer to the point of over-saturation.

Thanks to AMC’s “The Walking Dead,” zombies are a hot commodity in Hollywood. And with Zombieland 2 and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies already slated for production, America’s love affair with the undead shows no sign of letting up. But we all know it’s only a matter of time before this, like all fads, jumps the shark.

But until then, Hollywood is sure to churn out one Zombie-related project after another until they’ve scrapped the absolute bottom of the barrel. Some will be awesomely entertaining, most will be unwatchable, but each project will push us closer to the point of over-saturation. Here are seven examples we’re likely to see in 2011.

ZSI: Miami

The cops of”CSI: Miami” spend their days examining dead people. Why not cut out the middleman and put the undead on the case. Besides, Horatio Caine and company can use a fresh set of eyes, even if those eyes are rotting. Yeeeaaaaaaaah!

Habeas Corpus

This is America, damn it! Even the most wretched dirtbags among us are entitled to a fair trail. But what about zombies? How do you go about punishing someone who’s already dead? Life in prison? The death penalty? “Habeas Corpus” will explore the legal complications that are sure to accompany the zombie apocalypse.

Two and a Half Men

Everyone under the age of 50 seems to hate sitcoms like “Two and a Half Men.” What if the “half-man” in question wasn’t that fat kid, but someone who’d been devoured by a zombie? I smell an Emmy!

Undead On Arrival

Medical shows like “Grey’s Anatomy” are already running out of ridiculous plot lines. It won’t be long until zombies are thrown into the mix. Besides, I’m sure the zombie characters would be a lot more likable than Katherine Heigl.

16 and Pregnant…and Dead

Having a kid at the age of 16 is difficult enough. Try doing it when you’re dead. Yeah, it’s easy to sit there and judge that girl in the picture for devouring her own fetus, but remember; her body, her choice.

Zombie Leno

Considering the average age of a Leno fan, marketing his show to the undead is the next logical step.

Zombie A-cock-alypse

Porn films are made with such frequency that eventually, everything gets a parody (Shindler’s Fist, anyone?). So it’s only a matter of time before zombies make their way into the world of porn, especially if Zombie-ism is caused by a virus.

She nearly took home an Emmy for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and is currently lending her chops to CBS’s much-praised legal drama “The Good Wife.”

Though she’s best known these days as the adoptive mother of pretty-boy vampire Edward Cullen in the Twilight series, Elizabeth Reaser is more than just a pretend bloodsucker. She graduated from Julliard, did time on stage, nearly took home an Emmy for her work on “Grey’s Anatomy,” and is currently lending her chops to CBS’s much-praised legal drama “The Good Wife.” That’s not to say we don’t like her as a vampire, of course. We just have a thing for chicks who aren’t technically dead.

A word from Elizabeth: “I grew up subjecting my family to really bad shows in the living room. It’s what I love to do.”

As the latest actress to join the cast of ABC’s “Grey’s Anatomy,” Sarah Drew is officially the show’s rookie pretend doctor. But with a healthy resume that includes time on Broadway, a regular role on The WB’s “Everwood,” extensive voice work for MTV’s “Daria,” and even a couple appearances on AMC’s “Mad Men,” Drew is likely to shed her newbie status in less time than it takes to say “Turn your head to the side and cough.”

A word from Sarah: “I think the worst thing I ever tried in high school was the tight, rolled jeans look. I also had neon suspenders.”

More pics of not Miss Priss after the jump.
