Formerly bitter, embattled Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington is scheduled to reprise his role on the hit ABC television series in May, for at least one episode of the show's tenth season. Washington was fired from the series in 2007 following a brawl with his fellow cast members, in which he strangled Patrick Dempsey and called co-star T.R. Knight a "faggot."

Over the past couple years, several outlets (including Gawker) have chronicled Washington's Hollywood rehabilitation, as he's recently landed a few lead roles in small film projects, and a principal casting in The CW's upcoming ensemble series, The 100, premiering in March. Last year, Washington starred as "Beltway sniper" John Allen Muhammad in the indie, true-to-headlines drama Blue Caprice, which debuted at the Sundance Film Festival in January 2013.

Later this year, he'll star alongside Mo'Nique in director Patrik-Ian Polk's fifth feature film, Blackbird, about a high school choir boy's struggling with his sexuality, family, and faith.
