(Newser) – It won't come as a huge shock to Grey's Anatomy fans, but TR Knight—aka Dr. George O'Malley—is leaving the show, reports Michael Ausiello of Entertainment Weekly. Knight has been unhappy with his shrinking role and has reportedly clashed with creator Shonda Rhimes. Knight's character was seriously injured in the season finale, and his prospects for recovery just got decidedly bleak. Look for Knight on Broadway in a revival of Lend Me a Tenor next year.
