With controversy swirling around the set of Grey's Anatomy, someone needs to step in and heal the wounds that embattled star Isaiah Washington has inflicted.
Know who's up to the task? John Mayer.
In his official blog, Mayer suggests a great way to unite the cast and right the wrongs Washington caused with his gay slur about co-star T.R. Knight - make Washington's character, Dr. Preston Burke, a homosexual.
"What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination," Mayer writes, "than by portraying the very subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract?"
It'd be an interesting concept, and Jessica Simpson's annoying boyfriend didn't stop there.
He even outlined two scenes; one painting Washington/Burke as the webmaster of the fan site for the glam rock band Scissor Sisters - who also bakes tea cookies. The other suggests that a caged tiger be on set at all times to keep Washington in line.
THG NOTE: How about a script in which John Mayer, Crazy Joe Simpson and a pack of caged, rabid wolves all fight to the death?
Okay, sorry. We admit it - Mayer's ideas are kinda funny. If the whole music thing doesn't work out, Mayer might have a career in writing for television. Or maybe, given the way his buxom girlfriend's career is headed, he has a future in soft porn.
