If I were to tell you that Denzel Washington was hopping behind the camera once again, ready to throw his weight behind directing a project, you'd be all for it, right? Antwone Fisher and The Great Debaters turned out well, and Denzel is Denzel, so whatever he wants to do typically sounds good to the rest of us as long as we get to see the results. Now what if I pull the rug out from you a... Read More »

Grey-Sloan Memorial Hospital is preparing to welcome an Oscar winner—just not in the way you'd think. Denzel Washington is headed to Grey's Anatomy for the ninth episode of season 12, E! News has confirmed—but as its director. 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 gig marks Washington's first time directing for the small screen. He has previously directed two films: 2002's Antwone Fisher and 2007's The Great Debaters. It also marks a reunion of sorts with longtime »
Denzel Washington is really going for this director thing. After announcing that he would be adapting all of August Wilson's plays for HBO as both producer and director — while starring alongside Viola Davis in Fences (the pair won Tonys for playing these roles on Broadway) — he's got another director's gig lined up: an episode of Grey's Anatomy. TV Line reports that Washington will be directing the ninth episode of the season, written by Stacy McKee, which will shoot later this month. This will be Washington's first directorial outing on television; he's helmed two films, Antwone Fisher in 2002 and The Great Debaters in 2007. See? McDreamys are always replaceable. »

Multi-award winning actor Denzel Washington is stepping behind the camera to direct an episode of “Grey’s Anatomy” this season, Variety has confirmed.
Washington will direct episode nine of the current 12th season, TVLine first reported, which goes into production later this month. No storyline details have been released, but longtime “Grey’s” writer/producer Stacy McKee will write the episode.
Though the episode will serve as Washington’s first time sitting in a Shondaland director’s chair, he did previously visit the “How To Get Away with Murder” crew, posing for a photo with Viola Davis at a table read last year.

Washington will helm this season’s ninth episode, a Stacy McKee-penned outing that is scheduled to start shooting later this month (ahead of a November sweeps debut).
TVLine reports that Washington will helm the ninth episode of the show's current 12th season, and the installment will air during November sweeps. The details about Washington's episode are being kept under wraps for now, but it was written by Stacy McKee; shooting is expected to start later this month.
Washington has helmed two feature films in his long and celebrated career (2002's "Antwone Fisher" and 2007's "The Great Debaters"), but TVLine reports that this will be his first time tackling directing for television. Considering Washington already has two Oscars under his belt (Best Supporting Actor for 1989's "Glory" and Best Actor for 2001's "Training Day"), he could be gunning for Egot status if he nabs an Emmy nomination for directing this episode.

Editor's Note: RogerEbert.com is proud to reprint Roger Ebert's 1978 entry from the Encyclopedia Britannica publication "The Great Ideas Today," part of "The Great Books of the Western World." Reprinted with permission from The Great Ideas Today ©1978 Encyclopædia Britannica, Inc.
It's a measure of how completely the Internet has transformed communication that I need to explain, for the benefit of some younger readers, what encyclopedias were: bound editions summing up all available knowledge, delivered to one's home in handsome bound editions. The "Great Books" series zeroed in on books about history, poetry, natural science, math and other fields of study; the "Great Ideas" series was meant to tie all the ideas together, and that was the mission given to Roger when he undertook this piece about film.
Given the venue he was writing for, it's probably wisest to look at Roger's long, wide-ranging piece as a snapshot of the »
