In an interview with the New York
Daily News, veterage stage actress Madeline McCray joins a growing chorus of people positing that
Grey's Anatomy doc Isaiah Washington simply possesses a rotten bedside manner. "He's not anti-gay; he's a hothead," says McCay, who starred with Washington in August Wilson's Pulitzer-winning play
Fences. "[That] leads him to say and do things he wishes he hadn't - to everybody. He's always had a lack of control over his temper." McCay goes on to say, "Isaiah wants it to be perfect.... And he expects everybody else to be on their mark, too. But when we're adults, we can't allow our anger to get the best of us. He's jeopardizing the incredible opportunity [of having] a distinguished role on a hit show created by an African-American woman."
Washington, absent from Sunday's SAG Awards, is currently enrolled in a 30-day anger-management therapy program.
