Two-time Oscar winner Denzel Washington has taken a job in TV. The acclaimed actor will direct an upcoming episode of the ABC drama series “Grey’s Anatomy,” E! News reports.
Washington, a six-time Academy Award nominee who won trophies for “Training Day” and “Glory,” will direct the ninth episode of the show’s current 12th season. It will be his first time directing for the small screen, the story notes.
“The episode, which was written by ‘Grey’s’ head writer Stacy McKee, will begin filming later this month and is scheduled to air during November sweeps (a.k.a. when the most major of TV twists go down, so expect plenty of drama),” the article reports.
Washington has directed two feature films — the 2002 release “Antwone Fisher” and 2007’s “The Great Debaters.”
