Patrick May Appear On Primetime This Fall
The actor is deep in discussions to find a good fit for the upcoming primetime season and, sources say, it is totally possible that he could join a show slated for the fall. It is “Not too late at all,” a network executive revealed to Entertainment Weekly. “I can definitely see him ending up on something in the fall.”
We can see it, too! Something– anything. Please?
Patrick Is Ready To Return To TV
While it may seem a little hasty for Patrick to be jumping right from Grey’s into another series, it is actually a pretty common practice, according to people in the television industry.
“It’s very normal for an actor who has been on a show for a long time to take meetings, to get reacquainted with other studios and network execs,” said a different studio exec. “It’s just what you do. You never know when that dream project is gonna fall in your lap.”
Do you guys hope that Patrick finds his way back onto television sooner rather than later? Or do you think he should spend some time doing something else?
