(Newser) – It's not time to turn off the lights just yet, but TR Knight is the latest actor to leave Grey's Anatomy. His character has been twiddling his thumbs this season, making it a good time to move on, insiders tell Entertainment Weekly. Knight's departure, date TBA, supposedly isn't linked to homophobic slurs a co-star directed at him two years ago.
