Jeffrey Dean Morgan
We know you loved Jeffrey Dean Morgan as the dearly departed Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy, John Winchester on Supernatural and Judah Botwin on Weeds. (Why does he always play dead people?) Luckily for all you JDM fans, we snagged an interview with the up-and-coming movie star to chat about his role in Warner Bros.' Watchmen, which hits theaters March 6.
Directed by the visionary behind 300, Zack Snyder, Watchmen is based off the 1986 comic book series of the same name. The story is set in an alternative 1985, where superheroes exist and tensions between the U.S. and the Soviet Union are coming to a boiling point. Rorschach, a superhero vigilante, investigates the murder of a former hero, The Comedian (Morgan), and inadvertently discovers a widespread conspiracy to kill heroes, in turn changing the course of history.
So, what would you ask Jeffrey Dean about Watchmen, Grey's and his other ventures. (Before you ask, no, we will not ask him for his phone number.)

A drama pilot being shepherded in part by Grey's Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes has found its "McDreamy."
Inside the Box, from Richard Robbins and exec-produced by Rhimes and Betsy Beers, is set in a Washington news bureau and revolves around Catherine, a hard-hitting producer. Playing coworker Jake — aka the Derek to Catherine's Meredith — will be ...

Grey's Anatomy's Derek has got his mother's ring. Now what? — Gayle
MATT: Dude needs to unload it and quick, I'd say! Instead (sigh), he will hold onto it long enough for virtually every Seattle Gracer — Meredith excluded, of course — to learn of the bauble's being and in turn offer their two cents on when and how he should pop the Q. Will Der stick to his original plan? And if so, does it involve a meticulously crafted arrangement of candles?
I love Tom Scavo on Desperate Housewives this season. Any scoop? — Marcia

The final day of the Television Critics Association winter press tour kicked off with ABC Entertainment president Stephen McPherson tackling such tough subjects as the ever-changing broadcast business model, the fate of the three-camera comedy, and ... whether he 'ships Izzie-Dead Denny.
"Listen, the viewers will be the judge; that's the good and the bad of this business," McPherson said when asked for his take on the controversial Grey's Anatomy storyline. "I think that when you get to the end of the season, you'll see everything that [Grey's creator Shonda Rhimes] had in mind. It might not be your cup of tea, but I think you ...

Having Denny appear on one episode of Grey's Anatomy, because Izzie's memories were triggered by a case, is one thing. But to make him a ghostly fixture in her life and carry on some kind of romance from beyond the grave is beyond ridiculous. — Evie
MATT: I hear you. Getting it on with a ghost is so circa-1981 Barbara Hershey. Now, if s-e-x between living, breathing humans is what floats your boat — and lord knows the pickings are slim if you only watch Grey's, Ghost Whisperer and Supernatural these days — Drs. Owen Hunt and Cristina Yang might soon move beyond spontaneous necking and into full-on boinking. As Kevin McKidd himself tells me, "At the end of the day, this is Grey's Anatomy, so you can bet good money on it!" (Read my full Q&A with "McArmy" on Thursday. Great Scot, he gave up crazy Journeyman scoop!) As for Izzie and Denny, that "ghost story" isn't ending any time soon, seeing as Jeffrey Dean Morgan still has a few more appearances left (says EW's Ausiello).
I've missed Chase and Cameron on House, and was thrilled to see them in significant roles again. Are they more involved in future episodes? — Shane
MICKEY: Though the much-touted "hostage" episode airing Nov. 25 is kind of the Thirteen Show (Olivia Wilde is great in it), Chase and Cameron do ...

Jeffrey Dean Morgan in Grey's Anatomy by Ron Tom/ABC
Jeffrey Dean Morgan is on his way back to Grey's Anatomy... but why, and how? JDM originally played Izzie's ill-fated patient/sweetheart, yet ultimately saw that run come to an end when Denny's ticker timed out.Morgan would later reprise his role for an episode in which a waterlogged Mer flirted with death, but was urged by Dead Denny and Dead Kyle Chandler to choose life.So what now? Is Grey's going to kill off Izzie, as has been rumored by one online site, and Denny will resurface to escort his love to The Other Side? In a word, no. For starters, at least one inside source assures me that there is no plan to off Izzie as a means of punishing outspoken cast member Katherine Heigl. Besides, Morgan has already filmed his scenes, which are to air in the season premiere, so the timing is too soon to even accomodate any such tearjerker. My take? Denny will appear to Izzie in a dream, as a sort of "epiphany" to the sometimes aimless doc to get her ish together. How and why would you brin...
Mary-Louise Parker's on-again/off-again romance with Jeffrey Dean Morgan is... off, and in a big way, I'd say. Parker has ended her relationship with her former Weeds costar, just months after they announced their engagement. A source close to the couple explains to the AP that M-LP and JDM simply have differing lifestyles, but adds that Parker holds Morgan in the highest regard and hopes that they can remain friends.

Mary-Louise Parker and Jeffrey Dean Morgan were already the freshest couple in town, and now they're going to be the freshest married couple in town. The two just got engaged.The couple met on the set of Weeds, in which they play husband and wife. While the pair dated last year, they announced a split in June. Despite the hiatus, though, they rekindled the romance. Parker is an Emmy winner for her part in Angels in America, while Morgan steamed up screens on eps of Grey's.Adding more fuel to the love-quadrangle fire, Parker had previously been with Billy Crudup, who dropped her for Claire Danes, despite Parker's pregnancy with their baby. Danes and Crudup have since called it off, and Parker is now mom to William Atticus Parker. Anna Dimond
