Isaiah At Least Gets Abused

Isaiah Washington, the actor at the heart of the “Grey’s Anatomy” gay slur controversy, is set to star in the indie drama “The Least of These” says Variety.

Washington plays a priest returning to the Catholic high school where he once was sexually abused. His character replaces a missing teacher who molested several teenage boys and might have been killed by one of them.

It is Washington’s first role since his derogatory comments, and a much-publicized stint at a treatment center for psychological counseling.

Former Christian singer-songwriter turned writer-director Nathan Scoggins makes his debut on the project. The film begins a month-long shoot in June in Los Angeles.

The director acknowledged that casting Washington might be seen as a risk but that the feature would take pains not to link pedophilia to homosexuality.
