It’s official! Patrick Dempsey has confirmed his role in the upcoming ‘Bridget Jones’ film, and he did it just in time for the ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ premiere. Um, awkward?
Patrick Dempsey, 49, looks positively delicious in this first photo from England where he is preparing for his role in Bridget Jones’ Baby. Not only does he look great, but he seems really excited about his spot in the upcoming third installment of the hilarious franchise, and he has every right to be now that he’s no longer a part of Grey’s Anatomy.
Is it just me, or has Patrick Dempsey gotten significantly hotter since leaving Grey’s Anatomy behind? In this cool new photo posted to his Instagram on Sept. 23, the McDreamy actor looks incredibly handsome with his salt-and-pepper hair and short beard. It doesn’t hurt that he is dressed to the nines and smirking in front of a massive movie studio where he’s been rehearsing for his new film, Bridget Jones’ Baby.
“Nice to be working in England. Renee [Zellweger] and Colin [Firth] are an absolute joy to work with!” Patrick captioned the photo, humbly bragging about his new gig and co-workers. “A good couple of days rehearsing at Pinewood Studios. I really like it here!”
It is worth noting that Patrick posted the photo just one day before Grey’s Anatomy was set to premiere for it’s first season without him in his role as Derek Shepherd. Although fans of the show will seriously miss his presence, it’s great to see that Patrick is still hard at work on other projects. He’s obviously going to be a dream in Bridget Jones!
