Fall TV Preview

Exclusive First Look: Grey's Anatomy Alum T.R. Knight Returns to TV on Law & Order: SVU

In his first TV gig since checking out of Grey’s Anatomy two years ago, T.R. Knight has landed a juicy guest turn on Law & Order SVU — and we’ve got your exclusive first look.

SVU Scoop: Stabler’s Exit to Be Dealt With Over [Spoiler Alert]

In the episode — slated to air sometime this fall — Knight plays a man suspected of being a serial rapist.

Upon leaving Grey’s in May 2009, Knight returned to his theater roots with a part in the Los Angeles production of the musical parade. He followed that up with a starring role opposite Patrick Stewart in a Broadway revival of David Mamet’s A Life in the Theatre.

The new season of SVU premieres Wednesday, Sept. 21 on NBC.

  • Why do all the loveable character of successful shows alway turn out to be rapists on other shows?

    First Buffy’s “Xander” (he was a sweetheart on Buffy).
    Now GA’s George… (he is just a suspect, but still… I am not amused).
    Of course it gives them the opportunity to show off their acting skills.
    Still, it’s painful to watch for me :)

      • Well, it shows that both are very good actors who can act many different parts! :)

  • Wow he looks thin

  • He lost a lot of weight. I’m not sure he quite pulls it off. I think he looked better with some extra weight on. To be fair though, this isn’t exactly meant to be a flattering photo.

    • You are right! He looks so much better with the weight.

  • He developed a complex after George had all his skin ripped off and lost 30 pounds?

  • George was one of my fave characters on Grey’s. He’s been missed from the show. Nice to see TRK back on TV and hope we see even more of him.

    I love his natural light haircolor!
    He’s a cool and talented actor.

  • Are you sure he’s a rapist and not the victim? Ok odds are more likely than not he is some sort of perp. But I’m still gonna go with he could be the victim. They have had male victims on the show before.

  • C’mon TR.. please forget all your stuffs with Shonda Rhimes and go back to Grey’s Anatomy when Ellen Pompeo leaves the show

    • He died on GA, it would be hard to bring him back, didn’t go over too well the last time they brought a character back as a ghost!

  • Is Ellen leaving Grey’s?????

    Comment by Kbess – August 22, 2011 07:00 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It’s a possibility but we don’t know yet. Her contract is up at this end of this season and there’s no word yet on whether or no she will return…

      Comment by Babygate – August 22, 2011 08:20 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • all the original characters contracts are up :( greys wont be the same without them

  • We’ll have to wait and see how this looks on screen. On this pic he looks too scrawny and young, like he’s hardly strong enough to pull off an assault.

    Comment by Babygate – August 22, 2011 08:18 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Sure he could pull it off. He might have to use some trickery and perhaps drugs but if he wanted to, he’d figure out a way.

  • I agree that he looks a lot better with a little weight on him, but as long as he’s happy…

  • Wow. I can’t wait to see this episode. He’s an awesome actor in whatever he does, it seems.

    • Just wanted to add that I certainly miss him on GA. Haven’t watched regularly since he left.

  • Wow, he looks great! (minus the dirt and sad face) So glad to see TR back on TV. I was watched an old episode of Grey’s and I really miss seeing him on that show.

  • Maybe it’s just me but he looks absolutely terrible. I guess after he quit GA he ran out of money and has been unable to eat.
