John Mayer: The Great Mediator

1/19/2007 1:24 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

John MayerWith controversy swirling around the set of "Grey's Anatomy," someone needs to step in and heal the wounds that Isaiah Washington has inflicted. That someone might just be -- John Mayer.

In his blog, Mayer suggests the way to unite the cast and right the wrongs Washington has caused, is to make his character gay. Mayer asks, "What better way for an actor to get to the roots of his discrimination than by portraying the very subject of his own ire for the remainder of his contract?"

But Mayer didn't stop there. He even outlined two scenes; one paints Washington's character as the webmaster of the fan site for the glam rock band Scissor Sisters -- who also bakes tea cookies. The other suggests that a caged tiger be on set at all times to keep Washington in line.

If the whole music thing doesn't work out (although with a total of five Grammy noms for "Continuum" and Try! we doubt it), Mayer might have a career in writing for television.

Honestly, who cares what advice John Mayer gives the cast of Grey's Atanomy. Who is he anyway? Noone cared what he thought before and noone cares now. He thinks just because he is dating Jessica Simpson people care about him. Wrong.

The sick thing is - he's right...and Grey's ratings would soar! They should cast Rosie O'donell in the first episode and just milk this cow for what its worth! WAY TO GO JOHN BABY! -Waukisha

John,

You're a tool. I can't believe you went to a prestigious music school just to sell out.

That is a great idea! Not sure about the scenes he outlined, but making Isaiah Washington play a gay man would be awesome and a great way for him to apologize to the public for his comments.

Isn't this a free country? I don't get it when Washington call TR a gay(when TR himself has admitted he is a gay) he should be fire. I am an African and I have a nephew who has been rejected by our entire family because he is a gay. Like he always tell people, he had accepted our honestly and understand our rejection. I migrated 5 years ago to the states, I was blessed to have every American to be my friend(white, African American, Hispanic etc.) During my first month at the company, I was told by nearly everybody on the job who was gay. It is a normal pattern here, they pretend to fit well with gay people, but they don't really like gay people.

I personally think that Washington should be fired from the network and replaced by "The Wire"s Idris Elba. He has to be the sexiest man alive and would be a wonderful addition to the cast!

Um, I wouldn't mind making Dr. Burke kiss a MAN.....I think that would really be putting his money where his mouth is....he is an actor, let's see him act....because his fake ass apology, wasn't doing it for me.....and about 85% of the other people that voted on the TMZ pole today.....
