Patrick Dempsey Lands His First Movie Role After ‘Grey’s Anatomy’
While we’re still mourning the death of McDreamy, Patrick Dempsey has moved on.
As first reported by Deadline, the movie is the much-anticipated third installment of the popular film franchise. The 49-year-old actor will join Renee Zellweger and Colin Firth, who are set to reprise their roles of Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy.
“I want to try something different,” he told Entertainment Weekly in April. “[But] is Derek so identifiable that I can’t go on and be someone else?”
Plot details are being kept under wraps, including which role Dempsey will be playing. However, the title of the movie does suggest that Bridget Jones will find herself expecting (maybe she will be having McDreamy’s baby).
