Patrick Dempsey is moving on from playing Dr. McDreamy after the eighth season of Grey’s Anatomy and eyeing a big-screen role as Dr. Strange instead.
Patrick has hinted at it for quite some time, but now it seems the time has really arrived.
“It’s gonna be my last,” he said. “I do not know what’s going to happen to the other characters, but for me it’s done.”
Patrick says he wants to take on more roles on the big screen.
He will star in the upcoming Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but says he’d really love to play Marvel superhero Dr. Strange in a film adaptation.
“I’ve been lobbying for that,” Patrick previously told the Los Angeles Times (via Huffington Post). “There’s a whole bunch of people [among the Grey’s crew] who are into comics and Marvel, too, on the set, and they’re like, ‘Doctor Strange, that’s the one you should do.’ It would be fantastic. It’d be a great TV show, especially for HBO or something like that.”
Do you think McDreamy is making the right move?
