Ellen Pompeo said in a recent interview that she will likely leave ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ when her contract expires in 2012. I understand that eight seasons is a long run, but if it were me I would ride that gravy train for all it’s worth. Pompeo should go for coffee with a soap opera star. Soap actors stay on those shows for 30 years sometimes. The work may not be artistically fantastic, but the pay sure is great. To each his own, I suppose.
