A new McDreamy is coming to Grey’s Anatomy! Sadly, he won’t be in front of the camera.

EW has confirmed that Denzel Washington will helm an episode of the ABC drama. As first reported by TVLine, the two-time Oscar winner will direct this season’s ninth episode that will shoot later this month.

This marks the first time that Washington, who helmed Antwone Fisher in 2002 and The Great Debaters in 2007, has directed for the small screen. 

We may have to credit Grey‘s executive producer/director Debbie Allen for luring Washington to the set; TVLine says they’re old friends.

Maybe Allen can work her magic on getting him in front of the lens next time.
